The box I use for my UX and Product Strategy Workshops
What’s in the box
- Post-its, mostly yellow, always super sticky I use pink post-its to highlight, blue for groupings and yellow just in case
- Black Sharpies, obviously. Then highlight colours; green, blue and yellow.
- Dot stickers for dot voting and six/eight up sketching
- White sticky tack because Blu-Tak marks walls. Mostly used if there is no white board and in conjunction with…
- Record cards, plain white I find them much easier to use and more tactile than post-its and you can give them away as actions at the end of the workshop
- Whiteboard markers because the ones left in the meeting room will always be crappy. I use slim ones so they don’t take up as much space
- Drawing pins (in case there is only a cork board), elastic bands (to gather up the cards at the end), paper clips (for the post-its), bulldog clips and two magnets (for pinning things to white boards), scissors and a pencil sharpener
- Mountain Goat software’s rather ace Planning Poker cards for estimating how long / how hard things will be / take to do
- UX Kits’ website planning cards for quickly planning user journeys and IAs
- All housed in a MUJI box. It’s great as the lid can be detached to save table space
I sometimes take a roll of magic whiteboard just in case.
Over to you. Do you have a workshop box? What’s in yours?
