  • 3 Core Principles
  • Know your customer better than they know themselves.
  • Observed customer pain...
  • ...drives to a solution.
  • It is hard to understand your customer from your office…
  • Connect with where they are coming from… 1. Be the customer 2. Watch the customer 3. Talk with the customer
  • Purpose of Deep Customer Empathy • See the customer from a different perspective • Understand what really matters
  • To get one great idea, you have to create lots. Your first idea is usually not your best.
  • Divergent Thinking Create Choices Convergent Thinking Make Choices
  • Purpose of Going Broad to Narrow • Create options before making choices • Explicit criteria = better choices • The foundation for innovating new ways of doing things
  • Watching how our customers behave is far better than our opinion.
  • Rough Experiments to Test Ideas
  • Get Feedback Early and Often
  • Build Physical Prototypes to Experiment
  • Experiment in the Lab & Field
  • Purpose of Rapid Experiments with Customers • To learn what will improve customers lives • To learn what the pros and cons of different approaches are • To make better decisions
  • 6 Methods
  • SAY DO THINK FEEL D4D | Empathy Map The Empathy Map Problem Statement •  I"am"________________________________." •  I"am"trying"to"_________________________," but"_________________________________" because"_____________________________," which"makes"me"feel"__________________." “Who”"with"3"characteris=cs" Outcome/Job" Problem/Barrier" Root"Cause" Emo=on" The Problem Statement Brainstorming The 2x2 The Storyboard Visioning
  • The Empathy Map SAY DO THINK FEEL D4D | Empathy Map
  • What%mo(vates%me%is:% ______________________________%
  • You have research findings and want the team to understand what they mean at a deeper level. WHY use it WHEN to use it •To sink into a user’s perspective and related emotions. •To uncover underlying motivations and beliefs that drive behaviors and words. • Feelings are key to delivering delight. Time: 20-30 minutes per user
  • 1.PLAN: Set out Sharpie markers and Post-Its 2.UNPACK FIELD RESEARCH: What ‘s surprising? Individually, write down your top 3 observations.Then, as a group, share each user’s story out loud, one at a time.Take notes on Post-Its, capturing observations, quotes, and inferences. 3.WALK THE MAP: Sticking Post-Its in the appropriate areas, starting with the explicit (say, do) and then to the implicit (feel, think) for each observation.“What did this person... SAY? (quotes and keywords) DO? (actions and behaviors) FEEL? (infer emotions using words/facial expression) THINK? (infer beliefs, logic – if I do this, then...) HOW to do it
  • The Problem Statement Problem Statement •  I"am"________________________________." •  I"am"trying"to"_________________________," but"_________________________________" because"_____________________________," which"makes"me"feel"__________________." “Who”"with"3"characteris=cs" Outcome/Job" Problem/Barrier" Root"Cause" Emo=on"
  • I  am  an  overweight  employee  with  a  full-­‐4me   job  and  a  toddler  at  home. I  am  trying  to  get  regular  exercise, but  I  can’t  find  the  4me because  I  spend    all  of  my  free  4me  playing   with  my  daughter  , which  makes  me  feel  powerless  to  control  my   weight.
  • You have a hypothesis, or understanding, about the customer problem and need to articulate it to gain shared-vision or customer feedback. WHY use it WHEN to use it Enables stakeholders to clarify the problem, the root causes and associated emotions. Use the problem statement with the target customer to get feedback on how well this statement reflects their problem, and how painful this problem is relative to others, from their perspective. Time: 5-10 minutes per Problem Statement
  • 1.WRITE the problem statement template on a large board or poster (or print the problem statement template). 2.Each team member should GENERATE their own problem statement, filling in the 5 phrases. 3.SHARE all problem statements with group 4.CHOOSE which problem statement(s) to test with customers HOW to do it
  • Brainstorming
  • You want to generate a bunch of ideas, form a variety of perspectives – quickly. WHY use it WHEN to use it •To generate many new ideas -- quickly • Incorporate diverse perspectives • Probe more deeply into a problem or opportunity area Time: 30-40 minutes
  • 1.SET CONTEXT by grounding participants in the problem or opportunity space, project history, personas and insights. 2.WARM UP. Use a group exercise to get energy up. 3.FOCUS ATTENTION by writing a provocative “How Might We...?” or “What ways can...?” question on the board. 4.QUIET IDEATION. To balance different thinking styles, spend 2-3 minutes capturing ideas individually, one idea per Post-It. Use Sharpies. 5.ENGAGE EACH PARTICIPANT by asking them to share an idea. 6.REINFORCE the idea by repeating and clarifying it, then sticking it on the board. 7.BROADEN:When ideation slows, build on ideas. 8.CLUSTER ideas into themes. HOW to do it
  • The 2x2
  • These are the best ideas for the project goals
  • When you have a number of ideas, and need to evaluate them to narrow your focus. Explore relationships and tensions between two goals, values, motivations, or other characteristics. Prioritize your ideas using criteria important to you and your customers. WHY use it WHEN to use it
  • 1.EXPERIMENT with word pairs for axis labels. Often, it takes a few iterations to arrive at useful labels for analyzing ideas. 2.PLACE idea Post-Its in the appropriate quadrants.You should have Post-Its in all quadrants. If you find they are all clustered in one quadrant, brainstorm another axis label. 3.PHOTOGRAPH the populated 2x2 and the related notes. 4.ITERATE. Develop multiple versions of 2x2’s to uncover additional insights and refine your point of view on which ideas to explore first. HOW to do it
  • The Storyboard
  • 1.  Customer Problem 3. Customer Benefit 2. PROPOSED SOLUTION & EXPERIENCE!
  • When you have an idea and want feedback on how well it solves the customer problem, meets the customer’s criteria, or delivers a big customer benefit. WHEN to use it Enables your team to iterate quickly on new concepts before spending time designing or building high-fidelity mockups. Storyboards can also be used to gain deeper insight into the customer’s experience. WHY use it Time: 60 minutes per iteration, including customer feedback
  • 1.SELECT an idea or problem to storyboard 2.DETERMINE WHAT YOU WANT TO LEARN: 1.ASK the team “What would be good about this solution?” Be very specific (e.g., “Make it Easy” is too broad) 2.NARROW to the top 2-3 reasons.This is the hypothesis that you’ll test for this idea. 3.CREATE A SCRIPT. Place a Post-It in each cell. 1.Write the customer BENEFIT in the last cell. 2.Describe the customer PROBLEM in the first 1-2 cells 3.Use the cells in-between to show how the story unfolds (your SOLUTION). 4.REPLACE each Post-It with a sketch of a key scene of the story. 5.PILOT your storyboard: Have someone who doesn’t know the story read it aloud and tell you what’s confusing. Revise. 6.GET CUSTOMER FEEDBACK. Have the customer tell you what is happening in each cell.Then get their reaction to the problem, idea, and the benefit. HOW to do it
  • Visioning
  • •You need to articulate and align your team on an inspiring overarching vision. •You need to bring deeper meaning to an existing vision statement. WHEN to use it •To establish the emotional connection to why this outcome is important for you and your team. •To understand the relationship between current state and where you want to be. WHY use it Time: 90+ minutes
