Very convenient. You can always take them with you to a meeting with the customer and sketch a prototype for the future dashboard. I’m sure it will be useful for everyone, both analysts and developers, and product owners for presentations.
During our projects, we use it to solve a deadlock and decide what to sketch when we’ve run out of ideas. Also, we once gave the deck to a client during our discussions — it was the first time we had seen an adult person look at cards for so long.
