Stop Brainstorming and Start Sprinting

But, in my experience, there’s an added benefit to having the Decider see which way people are voting. It kind of expands their own viewpoint. It’s like rapidly consulting everyone, then making the call.

It’ve seen a Decider overrule a group-favorite solution, but she was also very good at articluating why (“Idea A goes against our product core value X, so we won’t do it”). This leads to more transparency — people will often be fine with shutting down a good idea if there’s a better reason.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
