The Playbook has 130 pages and explains in detail how you can use the Health Product Wheel for your product. Additionally it gives you detailed instructions for over 20 methods that help gathering the information you need to fill up your Health Product Wheel Canvas.
The Canvas is a tool we have developed in cooperation with the Techniker Krankenkasse.
The Health Product Wheel enables consideration of all relevant aspects to develop a successful product, understanding complex contexts and thus leading the product to success.
In addition to the Canvas and the Playbook we created different workshop formats. Through these, the participants can learn how the they can apply the methods to their projects.
Especially with large and long-term projects, we always reach the point where we have the feeling of losing the whole picture. This is where the Product Wheel helps us to see the big picture and understand how the different aspects interact.
When different disciplines work together, communication difficulties often arise. Here the canvas can be used to achieve a common understanding and to align everyone with common goals and milestones.
The canvas can also help to identify gaps and thus determine which topics the team should focus on next.
The center of the Canvas is all about your solution
The core summarizes the most important aspects of your product or service
The context describes all factors that influence the core of the product
For each area, it is best to proceed from outside to inside: That is, you work on the context first, then you work on the core. The Product Wheel is a cycle. With the knowledge gained from the previous cycle, you can repeat the cycle at any time to iteratively achieve the best result.
Challenge your solution from three essential perspectives: From the user's point of view, the business point of view and the technical feasibility.
