From Ideation to Iteration: Design Thinking for Work and for Life by Una Kravets

Design thinking

  1. Empathise — develop a deep understanding of the challenge
  2. Define — clearly articulate the problem.
  3. Ideate — brainstorm potential solutions.
  4. Prototype — design a protoype to
  5. Test — and iterate.
  1. Frame a question
  2. Gather inspiration
  3. Generate ideas
  4. Make ideas tangible
  5. Test to learn
  6. Share the story

1. Empathise

2: Define

  • Human-centred,
  • Specific, but not too technical (don’t solutionise too soon),
  • Narrow in scope.

3. Ideate

4. Prototype

  • Representation — the form it takes.
  • Precision — the detail it contains.
  • Interactivity — the extent a user can interact with it.
  • Evolution — the life stage it is at.
  • Use a transparency sheet for forms.
  • Use well-visible and mid-tip pens.
  • Draw up your prototype in black and white — people can get caught up in colour.

5. Test

6. Review and iterate
