Every experiment produces a result that supports or refutes the assumption you are testing. The result provides the evidence, but it is important to evaluate and give the interpretation of this into a learning insight to support the creation of the business model and initial business case or provide direction of new paths to test. Equally, more general learning may be captured on the process of what worked and what didn’t help to drive continuous improvements to your testing capability.
Solverboard captures learning as a knowledge asset throughout the platform, here’s how to do it on Tests:
Create a lesson
While in the relevant experiment or as part of the validation review click ‘Add a lesson’ button.
- Add a title for the lesson.
- Describe the lesson, depending on the nature of the learning:
- For insight learning, describe what was learnt and how this relates to the validity of the assumption and how it may inform the business model and initial business case.
- For more generic learning, describe what was learnt, detail what triggered the learning, what was the effect and were there any early warning indications. Suggest how this learning could be useful and applied elsewhere.
- Select the level of significance as high, medium or low.
- Select the type – did the learning produce a positive or negative impact.
- Assign an owner the person who either created the learning or person best placed to consult to understand in more detail.
- Optionally, check ‘Create another lesson’ to repeat the process.
- Click ‘Save’ to save this lesson and/or activate the creation of another one.
You can also copy the link from your browser's address bar and send it to anyone with permissions to see your project on Solverboard. In future versions, we'll be working on making this easier to do from within your platform.
Update a lesson
- Click on the Lesson.
- Click the pencil icon to edit.
- Make any amends to the text fields and change the owner if appropriate.
- Click the 'Save’ button on the top bar to save your changes.
