We want to know if there’s a form-like feature-set we could implement without too much effort that would actually be useful to our probable userbase.


It is not obvious that copying competing solutions would be a useful strategy, so we’re largely looking at survey/interview research as the source of insight. Intersects with the “Gathering User Feedback” project.

  • Build the qualifying survey
  • Perform the qualifying survey
  • Analyze the qualifying survey
  • Perform qualitative interviews with those that qualified in the survey
    • Use the jobs-to-be-done framework
  • Analyze the qualitative interviews
    • Doesn’t involve writing a product spec


  • Project might take too long
    • Reasons why this might happen
      • This kind of research is new to me, learning is involved
    • It is easy to get carried away with research
  • Setting deadlines might help



This section collects project related resources. It’s expected that there might not be anything here until the project plan is approved, and this section will grow over the project’s timeframe.


This project should take 5 weeks.


Please adjust as needed depending on the steps for the project.
