I would love to hear how you collect and especially organize ideas and stakeholder input in the early phases of a project.
We are in the very inital phases of a small project. For this, we are interviewing a lot of stakeholders and customers which generates a lot of ideas. We are also having discussions amongst ourselves from time to time, which generates lots of ideas of varying quality.
I suppose this is a very common thing, so I should also suppose many of you have been doing similar excercises.
My inital though was to just note them down without any particular order in a Word document. Another idea was to put them in the task management spreadsheet. When you think about it, any idea ("Maybe we can do X") can be converted to a task: "Investigate if X is a good idea" with medium priority or alternatively "Do X" with quite a low priority. But then, my best idea was to go to the Manager Tools forum and ask ;) How do you go about this?
Thanks in advance!
