Rapid Problem Solving with Post It Notes PDF ´

Rapid Problem Solving with Post It Notes I'm not sure if I didn't really internalize the tools in this book or if it just wasn't what I wanted I was hoping for something that would help me facilitate problem solving and decision making sessions with groups and just didn't find this to be useful for that purpose I'm torn about how much value I got out of this book In practice it does serve up a valuable if very focussed guide to use of Post ItTM Notes in defining sorting prioritising and giving structure to knowledge You have the Post Up and Swap Out for general information gathering and sorting the Top Down and Bottom Up for either generating or coalescing data and you have the Information Map and the Action Map either for finding commonality between the disparate or creating flow It all makes sense but I'm not sure whether it needed to be Post ItTM Note focussed or uite so longOK a viable toolset that somehow left me leaving short for the time spent reading it Seems outdated Nothing I didn't already know from UX work There were 4 pages of diagrams that did help with modeling some problem solving If it were a book filled with these diagrams then maybe The text was lackluster The initial concept was somewhat interesting if not expensive you'd go through piles of post its to use this method but if it works and you have the budget for it that would be a valuable expense However many of the methods seemed very complicated However trying to read them versus practicing them may be the problem if I were in a position to try out each step I might have been able to clearly understand the descriptions I have been looking for alternative methods to the traditional brainstorming that would still allow everyone to have input and feel ownership in the process so I'm interested in trying the post up the first piece of his techniue The swap sort to figure out priorities and some method of moving the notes into flow charts in various ways could be very useful I really enjoyed this book and the ideas it gave me It really added some nice tools to my toolbox for my creative process I find it helps me develop focus or find a new way of looking at a problem and I find the process great for brainstorming ideas as well He did a great job writing the book so the ideas are easy to digest and begin to practice as well as use it as a reference to refresh myself on different techniues later I use Post it R notes freuently to outline my ebooks books and other documentation so I thought this would help me refine the process I also teach using Post it R notes in my

and problem solving Brilliant short book based on the idea that a post it note can hold just enough content to capture one detail of a problem and the book presents several structuring techniues to
