  • When carrying out selective research on existing innovations.
  • During ideation rounds.
  • When discussing the most important features to develop for customers.
  • When discussing and critically assessing final ideas to develop into concepts.
  • When storyboarding your prototypes to build and test.
  • When deciding on critical assumptions to test.
  • During business model canvas sessions.
  • When developing your pitch content.
