Technically speaking, it takes just a few minutes to prepare Viima for real-life production use simply by following our basic guide for getting started. So if you have a clear vision of what you want to do with Viima, you really can start your ideation and innovation activities in minutes.
If you don't have a clear vision of what you're going to use Viima for, it might take slightly longer. In that case, we recommend you put some thought into questions, such as the following:
What is it you want to achieve with Viima?
What should the theme be?
How are you going to run the process?
Who would you like to involve in it?
In other words, you need to think about the people, processes, and resources behind the tool.
We often recommend our customers to start by focusing on a single use case first to make sure the planned process works smoothly and to iron out some of the inevitable kinks you'll run into along the way. With that experience under your belt, it's easy to then expand your use of Viima. For more on this topic, please see our guide on choosing your first use case.
