Transcript of Design Thinking Process

My Experience
Design Thinking Process Map
Although they were tedious and time-consuming, I DID learn by doing the peer reviews. By forcing myself to analyze another's work, I was reinforcing the principles of design thinking and practicing ideation. i.e. the quadrants on the feedback grid such as "New Ideas to Consider" allowed me to practice generating ideas. Similarly, thinking about comments for "Areas for Improvement" made me apply the knowledge I learned from the lectures and additional resources.
Takeaway 1: The Value of Peer Reviews...
Empathize & Define
This was an easy step in the process, since it was a straight forward action to observe and interview stakeholders.
Peer Reviews
I really didn't enjoy this aspect of the process but I understand it's value. See my Takeaway.
This was a very challenging task but very rewarding in the end. See my Takeaway.
Prototype & Test
Although it was difficult to get started, once I did, it was a fun activity. I definitely believe in the value of seeing how a user handles a prototype.
See my Takeaway.
When I created the prototypes, I had to resist the temptation of planning the
details before making them. This desire to plan actually kept me from starting
anything so I picked the simplest idea to prototype - a brochure. By making it , I
realized its limitations so it sparked the idea for the second prototype - a
website. Just jumping in for the sake of doing something served as a catalyst for
new ideas.
Takeaway 3: Think by Doing...
Thinking of 50 ideas during the Ideation phase was very challenging but when I
pushed myself to get over the humps, I was surprised at how many ideas I was able
to eek out. I faced a hump after 6 ideas but when I asked myself "What would a 5 yr
old do?" I was forced to put down ideas I never would've entertained. Those
outrageous ideas then inspired more ideas. This was a big departure from the
brainstorming sessions I've become used to as it didn't censor any idea.
Takeaway 2: Entertain silly ideas...
Time to take what I learned back to basecamp!
What do I write??
I'm out of ideas
...or am I?
Hmm...I never thought he would do that! Make note to self.
