Collaboration can enhance the output of early-stage design. When software designers or architects work together to define a problem and explore potential solutions, they find and address design problems earlier and arrive at more innovative and effective solutions than when they work alone. Nonetheless, collaboration can fail without proper planning. This set of 10 design session ground rules can significantly enhance the process and output of early-stage design.
