Select two topics that are associated with your project e.g if your project is focused on ‘travelling’, your two other topics can be ‘hotels’ and ‘restaurants.’

Once you have all three topics, your project topic and two other topics, label the diagram with each one.

With your team, write out various trends that are associated with the topic e.g for ‘hotels’ a trend will be Airbnb apartments.

At the point where the three topics have trends that intersect, discuss with your team on how to leverage on those intersecting areas.
