Idea Development Model (PDF Guideline)
The purpose of the Idea Development Model (IDM) is to have a quick process to help you frame your ideas, business concepts, products, services or offerings. This is a simple tool I developed for my own use because I often have ideas that seem interesting but as I go through this quick exercise I can identify gaps, challenges or even opportunities that typically change my perspective (ie. I almost always feel better or worse quickly). The key to this framework is that it is simply a guide.
