- How did taking the position of an Extreme User influence your thinking in relation to the design challenge? Was it different to how you usually generate ideas and empathy?
Taking position of an extreme user will influence my thinking a lot, in a good way. It can help me to think more of what users think, other than what developers think. Also, sometimes it can bring interesting ideas while doing this.
Personally, it is not that different to my process of generating ideas. When I come up with an idea, I will consider it with several different aspects, which includes thinking user’s demands.
- Did any of the other design thinking techniques (design provocation cards, stories, storyboards etc.) help you to work through ideas and collaborate with your group members?
I think these kind of methods do help me to work through some ideas while working with my team members. These can help us to further improve our ideas. For example, storyboard can help us to improve the design train of thought and clear user requirements. Also, we use these thinking techniques to improve the team cooperation. When everyone comes up with an idea, it may be difficult to understand each other just by talk. In this time, these techniques may help us to express our points of view more clearly.
