The Workgroup is made up of the Workgroup leadership and Seven Innovation Teams which create product definition for various Workgroup projects. These projects are completed by members of the Workgroup, and are typically different members from those who define the project, but not necessarily- it all depends on how much time you have, and how passionate you are about the project's purpose.
TEAM 1: Information Gathering & Market Sensing: This team gathers information currently available about the Workgroup focus. It seeks out what is being done. Compares different methods, and identifies the market needs.
TEAM 2: Problem Definition: This team identifies and writes problem statements. They clearly define the current problems confronting members in the Workgroup's focus area.
TEAM 3: Opportunity Definition: This team analyzes the demand for problem solutions, and the business opportunities created by addressing those problems.
TEAM 4: Feature Definition: This team defines the features of potential solutions, determines the level of innovation needed, and ranks the features of Workgroup projects.
TEAM 5: Feature Roadmap Definition: This team creates roadmaps that leverage resources and assets of this and other Workgroups
TEAM 6: Requirements Definition: This team gathers the requirements of various Project Features and defines the set of BASIC, PERFORMANCE, and EXCITEMENT requirements for each feature selected.
TEAM 7: Project Definition: This team builds the project plan utilizing all the information before it to produce a meaningful product the the community will value.
