We use the essence of the Agile Canvas to take a question based approach to managing the day to day business of teams.
Day to day business is a dynamic landscape of common instances:
- Tasks that need doing
- Decisions that need to be made
- Responses needed for inquiries, requests and issues
A question based approach is very simple. For any task, decision or response, those involved identify related questions, as many as they can. These range the gamut of who, what, when, where, why, how and what if. We form questions by turning our wants, unknowns and concerns into new questions.
People keep these prioritized in the order they will be acted on so they are always working on the next priorities. These questions give people focus, alignment and traction.
