So, my thesis project is currently in initiation phase. I’m drafting ideas and defining rough scope of the project. One part of this phase is to define the problem more clearly and find some ideas how to solve it before really tackling it.
I quickly learned that it’s great idea to have notebook and pen with me always. Last Saturday we had contact lessons and I heard lots of good ideas during coffee breaks. Same thing happens at work, sometimes the coffee breaks are the most productive time of the day. As a result, I have several pages of hastily jotted down notes that might or might not come handy.
This is probably part of the idea behind kick off events that some projects have. People get to know each other, get in same page regarding the project and can throw ideas back and forth freely.
