Project Academy Inc.



Summary: Listed below are questions to think about and discuss during your process of finding lots of possible solutions for the problem you have and then sorting through them and picking the one that best fits. The team will use a brainstorming process to create lots of ideas and then use tools to converge on a few best ideas. The team will use the requirements to pick the one idea to go forward with. Our outcome should be a better understanding or the design process.
