Exploring and scoring opportunities
The aim of the 'opportunity exploration map' template is to provide a process-driven visual canvas upon which to explore potential opportunities through articulating the elements of: a vision, potential applications, current state, deliverables/demonstrators, market and resource factors, scoring criteria, enablers/barriers, decision points, summary narrative. The design embodies a structured format for better capturing the key metadata and to also enable self-facilitated group work. This configuration was tailored for application in the ‘lite’ roadmap-portfolio toolkit.
