Planning with Post-Its

Post-it notes provide another excellent method of planning.

Brain storm all the ideas you want to include in your document and write each one on a post-it. Allow your mind to range freely – just capture all the thoughts for now.

Once you have got all your ideas, group them into a suitable structure for your document. The advantages of post-it planning are that you can easily add more ideas, move post-its and group them in different ways.

If you are planning with another person, record all your ideas separately first and then you can enjoy the discussion and evaluation together. It provides a physical and visual method of planning, generates more ideas than you can do individually and is fun too!

Take a digital photograph of your plan – it’s an easy way to keep a record.
