NanoHack #1

Clarify Your Challenge

What are you trying to solve, really?

Keep staying on track:

Sometimes we solve problems that require us to work through large amounts of data to uncover the real underlying challenge. This NanoHack will help you isolate and clarify the challenge you need to solve.  A well formulated challenge question can provide you the precision needed to think clearly about the right solutions. 

Good challenge questions position you properly in the problem space so that you can generate new ideas and break-away solutions. They stimulate thought experiments and enable innovation.

  • Gain clarity on the problem, challenge or issue you are facing.
  • Align team members and supporters around the right questions.
  • Provide a solid foundation for ideation and problem solving.
