A collaborative workshop to support the development of an idea for a product or service and
to lay the foundations for its development.
The problem it solves
Are you developing a new product/service or incrementally improving an existing one? Not sure
how to get started? Do you have too little information? Can't navigate between the different
priorities and ideas of stakeholders when formulating a valid main concept?
Target To provide a facilitated framework for a collaborative workshop where
stakeholders will jointly establish the MVP (Minimum Valuable Product) concept
which will be the base of the development and validation.Although the term MVP is often misunderstood, its main
purpose is to find out whether the product is worth further work. Therefore,
features are selected by looking at what is valuable to our users. To do this,
we need to understand who our users are, what activities they do that the
product supports, and how we can measure whether they find it useful. The Lean
Inception workshop will help you answer these questions, resulting in the
formulation of a practical MVP.
The workshop will be attended by relevant experts and stakeholders.
The workshop will be divided into three main sessions:
Introduction - During which the facilitator will present the
expected outcome, process and content of the workshop.
Exercises - Each day has a morning and an afternoon focus where
workshop participants work together with the support of the facilitator.
Presentation - A presentation and discussion where participants
present the results of the exercises to decision-makers and interested parties.
Each exercise starts by opening up the perspective, which is then gradually narrowed down and
made more concrete to produce tangible, focused results. The following exercises are included in
Definition of objectives - What is the product/service and what
is not? What does it do and what does it not do?
Creating user personas
Capabilities - Collecting features
Technical and business review of functions
Design of the user journey
Mapping product features to user journeys
Sequencing product features for development
Creating the MVP canvas
Create a risk matrix

Our main methods and tools The facilitator-led, innovative outcome-focused workshop, lasting at least two
days, draws on a variety of international good practices, including:
Paulo Caroli: Lean inception
Jonathan Rasmussen: Inception deck
Ash Maurya: Lean canvas
In combination with these tools, we will tailor the topics to your capabilities
and abilities based on a prior consultation.
Our working method will help you to collect, structure and prioritize creative ideas by defining
a common development direction. Value creation can be initiated and implemented along the lines
of objectives that are known to all.
