Frameworks for Teams

Conteneo provides teams with the frameworks they need to create roadmaps, prioritize work and improve their processes.

Create Roadmaps

Prune the Product Tree gives your customers and stakeholders the opportunity to join you in shaping the future of your products and services. We also use this framework internally, as we find that creating multiple trees for each of the engines that power our software platforms help us balance the growth of each engine.

Prioritize Work

Buy a Feature is a prioritization framework that you can use to engage dozens to hundreds to thousands of customers and stakeholders in the prioritization of epics, stories, features and capabilities, ensuring that you’re allocating development resources on the opportunities that matter the most to your stakeholders.

Improve Processes

Use Speedboat to run retrospectives with a single team or distributed teams. Include all of your teams to identify opportunities for improvements that scale across the enterprise.

Scale for Enterprises

Conteneo’s platforms promote the use of a common set of frameworks within and across teams, producing scalable, repeatable, reliable, rigorous and high-impact results.

Enterprises can leverage commonly known frameworks (we’re fans of frameworks found in Harvard Business Review) or create custom frameworks to meet their needs.

Scale Innovation

Leverage the Innovation Ambition Matrix to manage your innovation portfolio across product lines and business units.

Keep things fresh by using Curve Jump to identify how you can “jump a technology curve” for sustainable innovation.

Business Model Development

Leverage frameworks from the design thinking and Lean Startup community to design breakthrough business models.

Agile Portfolio Management

Use Impact-Effort Matrices to enable business and technology leaders to prioritize projects by value and effort, improving collaboration and bridging the gap between strategy and execution.

Create custom frameworks that allow multiple product teams or globally distributed business units to see individual portfolios in the context of shared portfolios, improving the quality of decisions while eliminating the delays and costs associated with in-person meetings.

Solutions for Society

We believe that collaborating teams are the world’s best hope for solving the problems we face—including the problems we’re facing at multiple levels in our society.

This belief has motivated us to create and support Every Voice Engaged Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit devoted to increasing civic engagement through Participatory Budgeting and Deliberative Decision Making. Supported by our global network of Certified Collaboration Architects and our partners The Kettering Foundation, the National Issues Forum and ESRI, we’re showing that the collaborative frameworks and practices pioneered by the Agile software development movement can make progress on the wicked and technical problems we’re facing at all levels of society.

Participatory Budgeting

Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a democratic decision-making process in which ordinary people decide how to allocate part of a municipal or public budget. Conteneo and Every Voice Engaged Foundation have been leaders in the Participatory Budgeting movement, having produced online and in-person events involving thousands of people for cities and schools.

Deliberative Decision Making

Deliberative Decision Making is a process for helping citizens tackle wicked and complex problems by exploring specific options, assessing trade-offs and making decisions on how to act. Created in partnership with The Kettering Foundation, Common Ground for Action is our scalable online platform that supports Deliberative Decision Making.
