Why We Love It
It can be hard to narrow down the capabilities of a product. This activity allows focus communities to choose their favorites according to what they want or need. We use variations of capabilities often in the concept development stages of a project when we’re defining or optimizing the experience for particular communities. It’s a great way to surface the most important features and help mitigate scope creep.
