What is a scoping session
and ideation workshop?

Scoping session is a 1-2 days business meeting dedicated to project planning. Together with the development team, you discuss the ideas of the project and set the goals.

It is the perfect solution for the discovery phase and a starting point for diving into details and understanding the vision of product development. It covers all the aspects needed to start working efficiently on your project: from the ideation phase, through scope definition, time, and cost estimation to go-to-market strategy.   

When you do not have the capability to define the product backlog and evaluate whether it is a good direction, read more about the process and see if you need a scoping session.
