At IDEO I developed a toolkit to capture, understand and use design project team knowledge. IDEO designers are fond of the post-it note. Teams generate post-its by the hundreds that capture ideas, questions, criteria, goals – all types of project information are captured on post-its.
The worksheets provide a framework for capturing and organizing all this information and turning it into actionable knowledge.
I worked on this project during downtime between client projects at IDEO. Many teams adopted the worksheets in their own projects and I have used them periodically in my career after IDEO.
