Kickoff Meeting Template #138
What's the scope of this sprint?
Walk through the intake form questions (and in some early cases: fill it out) with the team. Answer questions and try to refine your answers as much as possible. Doing so will help you understand what the scope of this sprint is as well as help folks outside the initiative understand what you are focused on:
What is the problem that we are trying to solve?
*What ails you? What's broken? What's missing? *
Who is this for?
Visitors, learners, mentors, teachers, partners, staff, community? Describe the user or users that you are trying to impact.
What does success look like?
Describe the "state change" that you wish to accomplish.
What are some benchmarks for a solution?
Has anyone else solved this problem (inside or outside of Mozilla)? If applicable, share URLs, organizations, or other services as benchmarks. The idea behind this is to set a bar for quality and help us avoid re-inventing the wheel.
What does the MVP look like?
What is the bare-bones set up and solves the problem? Think about the most important part of the solution -- the most impactful part.
What are the risks associated with producing a solution to the problem?
Think short term and long term. What kind of assets will be attached to legacy tools? How much time will be needed to maintain what we make? How much money will it cost? Is it resource-intensive?
