SCOPING AND IDEATION

Scoping and ideation workshop is the best way to evaluate ideas, define project scope and the roadmap

Scoping workshops can introduce you closer to the view of how your project may look like. The discussion and brainstorming give your idea a real shape and during the meeting allow to create the strategy and the roadmap. 

What is a scoping or ideation workshop? 

The scoping and ideation workshops are the perfect solution for the projects, where the requirements are on the general level. They are also a great starting point to let people dive into project details and understand the vision of the product to be developed.
