Over the last few years I’ve been using a toolbox dedicated to workshop facilitation. As I used to carry it with me, many people felt quite interested about it, asking me where it’s possible to get it.

Hum.. actually I’ve never found a ready-to-use toolbox so I composed it myself. But it’s not a big deal, you just need to pick to right tools ;)

So here is what you need to buy to compose a great toolbox for UX designers but more generally for everyone facilitating a workshop or any collaborative work.

The tools

  • Coloured sticky notes (3 sizes)
  • Coloured stickers
  • Stabilo fluo
  • Timer
  • Permanent black thin pen and black sharpies pen
  • Scissors
  • Tape and masking tape
  • Wool (useful to create dividers, or join ideas like an investigator :)
  • Removable and reusable glue pads
  • and finally: THE box!

How to get them?

Ready-to-use documents

As UX designers we always need a bit of a support to run our workshop properly such as:

  • Persona mockup (download an example here)
  • User stories canvas (download an example here)
  • Job stories canvas (download an example here)
  • Experience map canvas (download an example here)
  • Mobile mockup for sketchings (download examples here and here)
  • Tablet mockup for sketchings (download an example here)
  • Canvas for storyboarding (download an example here)
  • MVP: Voting elements with 1–10 figures (here), poker game cards(here), banknotes for a “Buy a feature” session (here) but also a MVP Matrix (here).
  • and so on …
