User-centered design The chief difference from other product design philosophies is that user-centered design tries to optimize the product around how users can, want, or need to use the product, rather than forcing the users to change their behavior to accommodate the product. UCD models and approaches[edit] For example, the user-centered design process can help software designers to fulfill the goal of a product engineered for their users. User requirements are considered right from the beginning and included into the whole product cycle. These requirements are noted and refined through investigative methods including: ethnographic study, contextual inquiry, prototype testing, usability testing and other methods. Generative methods may also be used including: card sorting, affinity diagramming and participatory design sessions.

Solutions-focused Thinking - HatRabbits A traditional approach towards problem solving, is analysing the problem thoroughly before generating solutions. Although this route can produce some useful insights and ideas, it will often lead to a negative and unconstructive outcome. Fortunately there is a positive and powerful alternative; focussing on finding the solution, rather than unravelling the problem. Concentrating on the solution sounds logical. Will Mobile Experience be added Google's Ranking Algorithm? Mobile websites have been an important part of the online user experience increasingly over the last few years. So much so that if you don’t have a mobile website, you are potentially missing out of 60% of your traffic. Google has taken notice, and now, just like any good Mother, they are gently nudging us to make user experience on mobile devices as good as we, as humble webmasters, possibly can. As you know, Google has been the ambassador of the user experience for a while now.

Repository Design activities Co-designing Envisioning The Design Sprint — GV The sprint gives teams a shortcut to learning without building and launching. The sprint is a five-day process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. Developed at GV, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use. Working together in a sprint, you can shortcut the endless-debate cycle and compress months of time into a single week. Instead of waiting to launch a minimal product to understand if an idea is any good, you’ll get clear data from a realistic prototype.

Design Thinking 101 History of Design Thinking It is a common misconception that design thinking is new. Design has been practiced for ages: monuments, bridges, automobiles, subway systems are all end-products of design processes. Throughout history, good designers have applied a human-centric creative process to build meaningful and effective solutions. In the early 1900's husband and wife designers Charles and Ray Eames practiced “learning by doing,” exploring a range of needs and constraints before designing their Eames chairs, which continue to be in production even now, seventy years later. 1960's dressmaker Jean Muir was well known for her “common sense” approach to clothing design, placing as much emphasis on how her clothes felt to wear as they looked to others.

Visualizing the customer experience using customer experience journey maps Too often when we think of a customer, our view is filtered through the lens of our job, profession, department, or specialty. Think of how patients are treated in most hospitals. They are viewed as a disease, an illness, a collection of parts – each with its own specialist. The hospital system is designed for the convenience of the specialists, not for the needs of the patient. Specialists in a hospital are much like the silos in an organization, each viewing a customer from their own departmental lens.

What is Design Thinking? - Design Management Institute Design management has traditionally used a Design Thinking approach to develop compelling products and services that resonate with customers, consistently producing financial rewards, and building brand loyalty. But beyond customer-centric empathy, beyond creative iteration, beyond the bias to a maker mentality, design thinking has more to offer the modern organization as a means to cultivate creativity and innovation in an organization. Design Thinking is Non-Denominational Some of its concepts – teamwork, visualization and an emphasis on more creative research tools – are not the sole domain of the designer or design manager. Practiced throughout the organization, the collaborative pursuits between design and business create a powerful platform to both support incremental improvements (reduction in time to market, increased margin, better product/market mix) and to drive innovation.

Leverage Browser Caching   This rule triggers when PageSpeed Insights detects that the response from your server does not include caching headers or if the resources are specified to be cached for only a short time. Overview Fetching resources over the network is both slow and expensive: the download may require multiple roundtrips between the client and server, which delays processing and may block rendering of page content, and also incurs data costs for the visitor. How to Run an Empathy & User Journey Mapping Workshop Introduction This article will teach you two popular design workshop techniques: empathy mapping and user journey mapping. Empathy mapping is a way to characterise your target users in order to make effective design decisions.
