Open Source Thinking Tools in Digital Product Design- VIBE WIRE Open Source Thinking Tools in Digital Product Design- VIBE WIRE Presentation Transcript

  • @MetaMikeBiggs OPEN SOURCE THINKING TOOLS IN DIGITAL PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT What about iterative design studio?
  • A bit about Mike... Executive Producer @ Autumn:01 Digital Agency Thinking Instructor @ School of Thinking 10 years in digital Agency, Client, Government @MetaMikeBiggs
  • WORKSHOP & RANT 1. A few things about projects 2. The Thinking Tools 3. Applying it to Digital 4. Iterative Design Studio 5. Leveraging other services
  • TWO MISTAKES WATERFALL is ONE WAY & REQUIREMENTS can be GATHERED
  • A FUNNEL OR A LOOP? Idea / Design Phase……………………..delivery
  • A FUNNEL OR A LOOP? Idea / Design Phase……………………..delivery All project structures are designed for CONSOLIDATION
  • A FUNNEL OR A LOOP? ? Examples: Hypotheses Parallel Design Research A/B Testing Catalyst for Variations/ Options Catalyst for Variations/ Options
  • Creativity isn’t magic “Synthesis doesn’t just happen”
  • Credit: • Tools belong to the schoolofthinking.org (http://www.schoolofthinking.org/) and are free to use by anyone. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMSDj9GA4qw • Software for the brain. Book Download: http://www.schoolofthinking.org/software.pdf CVS2BVS Defend or escape The simplest thinking tool in the world. ‘Current view of the situation’ 2 ‘Better view of the situation’ • A simple switch • A mechanism to explicitly motivate you to generate more alternatives • Can be applied at any point, at any time • Multiple application generates varied, and sequential options
  • X10 • Multiply your options by 10 • Work best when applied to some specific element • Works extremely well with scale, relative proportions, • Versions include: Divide by 10, adjacent 10, 10 parts etc.. • Resource: The X10 Memeplex. Book Download:https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B44Jw1ES0js6cDJGekwwWmJhd28/edit?pli=1 X10
  • GBB [Good, Bad, Better] • Identify the good • Identify the bad • Move toward a concept which is the result of explicitly defining the bad, and the good. • Uses tiny steps to develop and move a much larger idea ahead. GBB
  • How do we apply it to digital?
  • Key stages to exercise the tools: • Requirements development >>Actually hypothesis synthesis • The validation process • The Idea generation process • The visual design process • The development process • Testing and feedback analysis In summary: Constantly
  • DESIGN STUDIO LET’S DO SOME DESIGN
  • The Iterative Design Studio Process: • Familiarise with the problem context • INDIVIDUALLY: Generate a number of concepts for engaging with the audience early to understand their issues in context- pose questions that when validated will Illuminate the design process • GROUP CRITIQUE • INDIVIDUALLY: Drawing on everyone’s work in the first stage, sketch/ draw/ document a many different concepts as you can to begin to attempt to solve the core problem • GROUP CRITIQUE • IN SMALL GROUPS: Iterate by taking the best of the individuals, and synthesising into a new, better solution.

  • The Context: • Interflora have had a significant drop in phone orders. • It is assumed that no one uses the phone anymore to call even a florist. • A digital product seems like an obvious solution, however must be validated Key Audience Insights [assumptions] • ‘Everyone? ’ buying for special occasions • People (most likely men) looking to send a quick floral gesture at short notice • The lazy, forgetful, considerate, corporate.. the list goes on
  • • INDIVIDUALLY: Generate a number of concepts for engaging with the audience early to understand their issues in context- pose questions that when validated will illuminate the design process. • Try to use one of the tools: CVS 2 BVS or X10 or GBB • Time: 15 mins • GROUP CRITIQUE 10 mins
  • • INDIVIDUALLY: Drawing on everyone’s work in the first stage as inspiration, sketch/ draw/ document a many different concepts as you can to begin to attempt to solve the core problem • Try to use one of the tools: CVS 2 BVS or X10 or GBB • Time: 20 mins • GROUP CRITIQUE 10 mins
  • • IN SMALL GROUPS: Iterate by taking the best of the individuals, and synthesising into a new, better solution. • Time: 30 mins • Be ready to present
  • REVIEW DEATH AND DONUTS
  • HACKS YOU CAN LEVERAGE TO PRACTICE ITERATIVE DESIGN CONSTANTLY Remember we’re constantly validating hypotheses. • Email –email first as a concept • Social first • Air Tasker • Parallel design • AB Testing
