One of the first steps we take at Stretch Innovation when creating a new business case is identifying the underlying assumptions or hypotheses that you have in mind.
Those assumptions have to be true, or in other words validated, to determine whether your business case will succeed. Assumption Mapping will give you insights on the desirability, viability and feasibility of your business case, by collecting evidence to detect whether you can support or reject those assumptions.
First, we list some important questions that you should ask yourself during Assumption Mapping. Next we provide an example of a filled out Assumption Mapping template as an example. On the last page you can find a blank Assuption Mapping template so you can start Assumption Mapping yourself!
