“We’ve found that magic happens when we use big whiteboards to solve problems. As humans, our short-term memory is not all that good, but our spatial memory is awesome.

Jake Knapp, Make Time: How to Focus on What Matters Every Day

“By asking people for their input early in the process, you help them feel invested in the outcome.”
Jake Knapp, Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days
