Solution Flow - Reflection for Design Thinking

  1. 1. Mindful Process Reflection for Design Thinking An Inspired Concept by: Meamya Christie Date: 7/27/2013
  2. 2. Every Challenge Has A Song to be Discovered 2: The Process • Then, Define The Challenge 3: Holistic Approach • The Caregiver and Collaborator at Work 4: Pitch, Reflect, Perfect • Test Solution for Flow 5: Implementation • This key is necessary 6: Refine • Adjust as needed • Close Challenge 1: What is that Song? • First, observe and try to find a rhythm
  3. 3. Step 1:Defining The Challenge As I reflect on my personal process for solving a challenge. I realize that I have not had any formal training in this area. However, I am confident saying that my approach is indeed “holistic”. What is that song I hear?
  4. 4. Step 1: Define Challenge Observe Situation From a Technical and Human Perspective Step 2: Gather Input Take Survey of Audience Needs, Wants, and Desires Step 3: Incorporate talents Draft A Viable Solution, test for flow and functionality Step 4: Pitch and Reflect Ask team to approve drafted solution Step 5: Implement Timeline Adjust as Needed Step 6: Refine the Reality From first glance, things aren’t always what the seem. So before I begin a challenge, I try to analyze the wholeness of a matter by looking at the technical and human characteristics. This helps me to properly DEFINE THE CHALLENGE and find a rhythm.
  5. 5. • I’m not afraid to work alone however, I do understand that I don’t have all of the answers to everything. As a collaborator, I bring the human experience to a diverse team. Together, we draft a viable solution. Even in this role, I am The Caregiver for the team. STEP 2: GATHER INPUT • It is true, I identify with the caregiver, In facing a challenge, I take to heart the concerns of the people involved in the solution’s intended outcome. I try understand the audience I am creating for from a human-centered experience. STEP 3: INCORPORATE TALENTS The Holistic Approach Is The Caregiver & Collaborator at Work It Seems to Make More Sense When You Connect the Heart to the Solution
  6. 6. Step 4: Pitch, Reflect, Perfect Here We Pitch The Drafted Solution, Reflect on the Flow of human design, and Adjust As Needed
  7. 7. Once the drafted solution is accepted, implementation is the key to completing the challenge. As a collaborator, this is where I recognize the true value in having a MIGHTY VOICE on the team. In other words, a results-oriented person who can help the team move concepts to reality. Otherwise, it’s just talk. Step 5: Implementation is Key Sing The New Song Loud
  8. 8. Step 6: Refine the Reality: If there are bumps found in the design: 1) Re-visit Step 2 of the process &, 2) Move forward in accordance to the timeline
  9. 9. Now We Have Solution Flow, A Holistic Approach to Design Thinking
