At an onsite wireframing workshop with a client late next week, I'd like to do as much as possible to get them involved as a combined team rather than just dictating, lecturing, or performing for them.
I have one idea for an activity (courtesy of a great workshop I attended led by Kevin Hoffman), which is as follows:
Pick one pagetype. Each group member gets a piece of wireframing paper and has 10 minutes to lay out a wireframe for that pagetype. When 10 minutes has elapsed, combine people into groups of two. That duo now has 10 minutes to merge their wireframes together into one combined wireframe. When 10 minutes has elapsed, combine duos into four-person teams. Each quartet now has 10 minutes to merge the two duo wireframes together into one combined wireframe. Repeat this combination/merging process until the wireframe is whittled down to one page by the entire group. Talk about it!
I'm looking for some more frameworks like this that I can use over the course of two days to get everybody's input and to keep people interested and productive. Any ideas? Thanks!
