Elements of a Great 1-Pager

  • Problem-oriented
    • Crystallize the problem being solved in a few strong sentences
  • Clear success criteria
    • Super-specifically define what success looks like when the product or feature ships
  • Just enough direction
    • Give the reader just enough an idea of what the project will entail without eliminating the opportunity to come up with better solutions
  • Urgency
    • Provide a clear timeline to keep the project moving forward
  • Short and sweet
    • Keep it brief and put additional context into an appendix
