Use of co-creation methodology to:
• Understand how to get quick feedback
• Stay on the same page as the stakeholders
• Implement other ways to approach problem-solving
• Work collaboratively and encourage others to have a sense of ownership
• Develop the most complete product possible
The Storyboard method unified the entire Design Sprint team on the prototype concept and helped the group to make critical decisions during the prototyping process. Using a Storyboard helped us to map out each step of the experience. It clarified the pieces the team needed for the prototype.
Script writing was important at this stage as it helped align the storyboard to the user interview and clarified the structure of what mocks or experiences would be needed in the testing. The script also helped us create a plan for the Validate phase.
Strategy to structure the teams:
We were divided into two groups of 5 people in order for the tasks to be completed more efficiently.
In the most basic form paper prototypes are drawings of websites on paper.
These can be extremely rough in execution. The drawings don’t have to look good, they just need to convey an idea. The primary benefit of paper prototyping is speed. This practice can reduce the time it takes to design in multiple areas.
With paper prototyping we simulated usability tests before anything had been designed or built. We simply found a test subject and had them mock interact with the interface, indicating what they clicked and talking about their thought process. We were able to get the same level of insight without having to wait until changes became expensive. Additionally, we were able to sketch a new interface on the spot and re-run the test to validate our new solution.
We tested our study script with a colleague.
After doing two mock tests, we were able to proceed to conduct the main test.
In the Validate phase, the Design Sprint team was able to put their concept in front of users - this was the moment of truth!
We gathered feedback from five real users who interacted with a digital prototype that we built the previous night.
