To reduce time to impact and enhanced early value creation in project execution.
The impact solution design is an overall road map of the project’s value creation from start to finish. The impact solution design is based on an insightful core idea to drive value creation and early project output.
The impact solution design process is a human-centered, learning-focused, hypothesis-driven approach used to gain early impact, reduce uncertainty and prove the “worth” of the project.
To formulate the core idea and build the impact solution design, a 5-step process is proposed to front-load insight and drive user, subject matter expert and key stakeholder involvement. Involvement will build early support for the impact solution design.
- Identify key stakeholders to be involved in the impact solution design process.
- Use the process to formulate the core idea for early impact creation and build the impact solution design based on this idea.
- Use fast prototyping, early learning and customer insight to support the process.
- Remember that the impact solution design process is not a predefined series of orderly steps but a system of “spaces” that usually will be looped a few times.
