The solution repository overview shows all the solutions that have been created across the whole organization. Because the number of solutions can grow quickly, solutions can be filtered according to the labels your teams give them. This helps you filter solutions based on:
- Status – Current status (or synced from your pm tool)
- Group – Specific groups in the organization
- Type – solution type
To ensure your teams are off to a good start when labeling their solutions, it’s important to create a good labeling taxonomy up front.
Using the solution repository
There are several common situations in which the solution repository can help you.
- Present solutions in presentations or creative workshops. The solution overview allows you to easily filter solutions, so you can present solutions related to specific journeys, domains, or teams.
- Score and prioritize solutions. Using the solution matrix, you can quickly score and compare solutions in relation to each other, which helps you to determine which of them to pick up next. More on prioritizing can be read here.
- Manage solution progress. The solution repository highlights the status and ownership associated with solutions, allowing you to easily track what teams are currently focusing on across the organization, and identifying promising solutions that might not yet have been picked up by anyone.
- Visualize a solution roadmap. If you have labeled solutions according to roadmap stages (such as Horizon 1, 2, and 3) you can also use the solution overview to filter and group solutions according to those roadmap steps to get a sense of when they might be picked up.
- Clean up solutions. As you create more solutions across the organization, you might want to periodically review them to make sure they remain mutually exclusive, yet collectively exhaustive.
