Latest Iteration of the Assumptions Exercise

Giff Constable innovation

I used to mentor some of the very first Lean Startup Machine events and it was a lot of fun.  But I would consistently see teams struggle to think through their ideas holistically, and to concisely lay out their assumptions and risks.  They were getting stuck on the various canvases, so I created a simple questionnaire.

Fast forward several years, and that little quiz has stood the test of time. We use variations of it a lot in our projects. It’s not rocket science, it is just simple.

I just cleaned it up and posted it on the net for folks to download and make their own.  Have at it.
