Understanding each stage in the pipeline

Stage 1: Problems / Hypothesis

This stage contains problems or solutions that were:

A problem added to this column must have a forum thread link where the community can discuss about it and potentially propose solutions for it. There is no minimum amount of time a thread should remain opened before it can be moved to another stage of the process.

The problems in this stage have been considered relevant (by the core team or community), and are available to be voted upon in the subsequent Problem Selection Process ("PSP"). Such process is used to define what will the topics the core team will work next. The Aragon Association currently has 2 PSPs per quarter (before the beginning and in the middle of each quarter). Alternatively, any problem can be worked on by any Aragon community member at their own discretion.

Stage 2: Problems → Solutions

This is an intermediate stage for problems that were selected during a PSP. Based on discussions on the forum thread plus user research and product discovery performed by the core team the problems will be split into one or more potential solutions. The chosen solution(s) will then be tackled by the core team. Also, when a problem or solution is at this stage, community members can apply for grants to solve them (know more).

Stage 3: Upcoming (6 months)

This stage contains solutions that were already prioritised by Aragon core team (or the community) to be worked on at some point in the future, or have complex solutions that will take more time to be completed.

Stage 4: Working on (3 ~ 6 weeks)

This stage contains solutions that are currently being tackled by Aragon core team (within our product teams) or someone in the community.

Stage 5: Completed

Problems/Solutions that are delivered and are considered solved. We will archive cards after 6 months so it does not crowd the board (but history will be preserved).

Deprecated stage

Problems or Solutions that have been deprecated or canceled will be moved to the Deprecated state.
