Gut Check

What is this?
This is a method to quickly screen potential solutions for feasibility by forecasting constraints and barriers to adoption and implementation. 


When should I use this?
Use this after generating a lot of potential solutions through brainstorming and identifying promising ones using a 2x2 matrix or another method above. 


More about this...
“Gut check” is a misnomer for this method, since the information you employ will come from your research, not your gut. The process gives you a more realistic sense of the constraints that a potential solution is up against. It can also help zero in on specific barriers that need to be addressed to get a solution implemented.
