Opportunity Solution Tree

Teresa Torres tool for Agile Product Development framing: connecting big desired-outcomes to specific pains/opportunities, to solutions/hypotheses, to experiments.... aka OST

This smells like a promising framework to define a Product Strategy-based Development Queue instead of a classic RoadMap.

The pro-active process is to prioritize your problems/opportunities, and only spend time generating/refining solution ideas/candidates for the top 1-2 problems/opportunities.

She notes it's also a good reactive process, taking an "idea" (solution) and

  • defining a problem/opportunity it addresses
  • prioritizing of that problem/opportunity
  • generating/prioritizing other possible solutions to that problem/opportunity
