The template is a 4-step Notion document that has the following elements pre-designed for you:
List your ideas
Jot down all your ideas you have for a specific challenge. Give them a simple title and you are ready to start the evaluation process.
Evaluate the effort
How hard will it be to make this idea happen? Will it cost a lot of money, time or energy? Simply rate each idea with a simple 1-6 scale, and your ready for the next step.
Evaluate the impact
How happy will it make your users? How much money will this idea bring back to the company? Evaluate the impact of each of your idea with a simple 1-6 scale. That's it. You have done the difficult work. Now you can see the results.
Discover the recommendations
The template auto-magically sorts each of your ideas into a specific category with a recommendation. The template helps you answer the following questions:
Should I pursue the idea?
Should I kill the idea?
Should I make a strategic selection between some ideas?
✅ A step by step to remove biases
It's really hard to know which idea you should pursue and which you should leave. By using a step by step process where you answer one question at a time, it makes it possible to remove the "emotional" part of evaluating ideas.
