Guide and Best Practices

Rose bud thorn is a framework that is popular in business as well as in education. This simple activity helps evaluate a project, event, or even your day in terms of what worked well (rose), what has the potential to improve (bud), and what didn’t work well (thorn). It’s widely used in design thinking to review ideas and reflect on effort.

How Rose Bud Thorn Works

  • Share the Creately rose bud thorn template with the group of participants to collaborate on it in real-time. Simply share a document edit link or add your peers as collaborators.
  • Start the session by first defining the terms. Rose for what succeeded, bud for what can be improved, and thorns for challenges faced.
  • Brainstorm and reflect on each of the three areas and write ideas and insight down separately as bullet points or on separate colored notes (i.e. red for rose, green for bud, blue for thorn) under each category on the worksheet.
  • Go over the collected insight to identify themes. You can then move on to clustering these ideas based on priority or the identified themes.
  • Export your rose bud thorn worksheet in PNG, SVG or PDF formats to easily embed, or publish them in reports, documents or blog posts or take printouts.
