For example:

  • Collaboration
  • ITSM
  • Developer Productivity

Each team will be responsible for coming up with a new feature or product, that aligns with either Collaboration or ITSM or Developer Productivity.

You will use Project Poster to brainstorm the idea, and answer two questions:

  • What are we doing?

The team will create a Confluence page using the Project Poster Blueprint, and answer the above questions in the "Ready to make it" section of the project poster.
