Domains and Sub Domains

We'll divide the room into two groups.
Each group will have sub groups with three to four people.

 

Exercise: (15mins)

  • Discuss your domains as a sub-group
  • Take one or more of the domains and split it into sub domains
  • Try to categorise the sub domains

Drawing your domain maps

Split into the same groups

 

Exercise: 

  • Each sub-group will model their domain map on the whiteboard using their post-its
  • The other sub-groups will ask questions and explore the domain map collaboratively

Conclusions

Revisit your post-its from earlier

Would you answer these questions differently now?

  • What is the problem your business solves?

  • What is the main problem facing your business?

Next meetup
