You will learn what product trees are, and why you should use them

Product trees in Delibr are a powerful tool that allows users to organize and visualize their product ideas and insights. Three types of product trees are available: product hierarchies, opportunity solution trees, and jobs-to-be-done trees. A fourth type of tree called a generic tree, is also available. This article will explore the functionality and benefits of using product trees in Delibr. 

What are Product Trees?

Product trees in Delibr provide a visual representation of your product ideas and insights. They allow you to create a hierarchical structure where you can place your Delibr documents. Each document on the tree can be easily dragged and dropped to a different location within the tree, providing flexibility in organizing your product information.  

Types of Product Trees

Product Hierarchies 

Product hierarchies are used to define the structure and relationships between different product components. You can create a hierarchy of features, modules, or any other elements that make up your product. By organizing your product components in a hierarchy, you can easily understand the overall structure and dependencies within your product, as well as act as a placeholder for customer feedback. 

Opportunity Solution Trees

Opportunity solution trees help you identify and prioritize product opportunities and potential solutions. You can create a tree structure to capture different opportunities and their corresponding solutions. This allows you to evaluate and compare different options, making informed decisions about which opportunities to pursue and how to address them. 

Jobs-to-be-Done Trees 

Jobs-to-be-done trees focus on understanding the needs and goals of your target users. You can create a tree structure to capture different jobs to be done and the corresponding user insights. This helps you gain a deeper understanding of your users' needs and guides the development of your product to better address those needs.

The functionality of Product Trees 

Drag and Drop 

With product trees, you can easily rearrange your Delibr documents by dragging and dropping them to different locations within the tree. This allows you to quickly reorganize and update your product information as needed.  

Property Visualization 

If your Delibr documents have properties assigned to them, such as status labels or tags, these properties can be viewed directly in the product tree. This provides a visual representation of the document properties, making it easier to track and manage the status of your product ideas. 

Benefits of Using Product Trees

Visual Organization

Product trees provide a visual representation of your product ideas, making it easier to understand the structure and relationships between different components. This visual organization helps you gain clarity and insights into your product development process. 

Flexibility and Adaptability

With the drag-and-drop functionality, you can easily adapt and reorganize your product information as your ideas evolve. This flexibility allows you to iterate and refine your product strategy without losing track of important insights.  

Collaboration and Communication 

Product trees in Delibr can be shared with your team, enabling collaborative discussions and decision-making. By visualizing your product ideas and insights, you can effectively communicate your vision and align your team toward a common goal.
