UX designers working on software applications, constantly face complex problems with a large number of constraints. How do UX designers solve problems? Functionality is not the solution. Focusing on the interface is not the solution. In order to design an optimal user experience, the first step is identifying the right problem to solve. In this presentation, Raine gives you an in depth explanation with case studies to illustrate how her design teams solve real problems and how she carves out novel mobile UX strategies that align both business goals and user goals.

The design process for problem-solving, in 4 steps. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Many thanks to Tim Brown and TED for this interview we recorded at TED 2017. IDEO is an international design company founded in 1991. In the beginning, IDEO designed products—the first notebook-style computer, hard drives, even the next generation (of its time) PalmPilots. Most notably, in 1980, the firm was tasked by Steve Jobs to design a more affordable mouse for the Apple Lisa computer. By 2001, IDEO stepped away from designing products and pivoted to designing experiences. The process to solving problems, whether they be simple or complex, encompass these four steps: observing, ideamaking, prototyping, and testing. Tim Brown, CEO and president of the company, explains how human-centered design (and this four-step process) is a major key in how IDEO approaches complex challenges.

In Chapter 11 of 17 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, designer and educator Jon Kolko interprets design thinking. He talks about the rise of "Design Thinking" philosophy, specifically using design methods to solve strategic business and organizational problems. Kolko notes its shortcomings, specifically how design "doing" must complement design "thinking". He notes the "doing" part is often thought of as menial - commoditizing and offshoring product design for mass production overseas. Kolko argues against this, noting overseas designers will solve local design problems. Because design is connected to culture, problems must be locally solved, or at least locally engaged. Kolko is the executive director of design strategy at venture accelerator, Thinktiv (www.thinktiv.com). He is the founder and director of the Austin School for Design (www.ac4d.com). Previously, he worked at frog design and was a professor of Interactive and Industrial Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). He has authored multiple books on design. Kolko earned his Masters in Human Computer Interaction (MHI) and BFA in Design from Carnegie Mellon University.

Jon Kolko: Huh…I’m not entirely sure I know what design thinking is but I know what popular culture is starting to refer to it as; I suppose it’s using the power of design to solve large scale thoughtful problems. My problem with that approach is that it implies that you can do design thinking without doing design doing, that as if there’s somehow two separate things. You can’t, they are the same thing and the designerly approach is always one that involves thinking and doing. So, presently, that’s – it’s en vogue to describe a design thinking approach to problem solving and you can credit you know Bruce Nussbaum’s use of the word in Businessweek or any of the – the D school folks over at Stanford as hyping design thinking and – and props to them because now it is common vernacular in the language of business owners--this design thinking stuff. My problem is that I learned design thinking when I was a freshman at Carnegie Mellon, my first class was called design thinking and so – it’s not necessarily anything new and it’s just a small piece of the larger puzzle and there’s a real – there’s a real potential for problem in teaching design thinking in MBA curriculum – one or two classes and saying, ‘Okay, you are now ready to do design.’ And I’ve seen that fall apart miserably because one isn’t ready to do design with simply one or two classes in the way that design could be applied to large scale organizational change or to large scale cultural change. You really do need to have – have skills in making a thing whether it’s a physical thing a digital thing or a systematic service oriented thing. Just thinking about it isn’t gonna get you any sort of impact and so the larger discourse that occurs around design thinking needs to take into account design doing as well. I think there’s a fear amongst a lot design practitioners that a focus on design doing tends toward commodification, it can be commoditized and then off-shored and then will never – we’ll never hear from it again. That may or may prove to be true, I feel pretty strongly, it can’t be although we’re starting to see a great deal of Chinese and Indian designers that’s awesome, they’re gonna solve Chinese and Indian design problems and they’re gonna do it with the rich context of China and India. The problems in the United States and Mexico and Canada respectively have United States, Mexican and Canadian context and culture to deal with and because design is so fundamentally and inexplicably connected with culture, I don’t – I don’t think you can offshore that, put another way I think one needs to immerse themselves in the culture of the problem that they’re solving.

Brainstorming is a good way to come up a solution or two. As the name suggests, the idea is that you storm on the neural pathways through the brain to pick a lot of thoughts quickly and intuitively. It's best to do this with a group of diverse people, so you have lots of different brains to explore. This leads to the creation of more ideas and maybe new solutions.

Design Thinking is a 5-step process to come up with meaningful ideas that solve real problems for a particular group of people. The process is taught in top design and business schools around the world. It has brought many businesses lots of happy customers and helped entrepreneurs from all around the world, to solve problems with innovative new solutions. Crash Course: https://dschool.stanford.edu/resources/virtual-crash-course-video Guide for Facilitators: https://dschool.stanford.edu/resources/gear-up-how-to-kick-off-a-crash-course Entire Script: Step 1: Empathize The purpose of step one is to conduct interviews that give you an idea about what people really care about. We need to empathize with their situation. For example, if you want to help old people, you might find that they want to keep the ability to walk around. In your conversations, they might share with you different ways they can do that. Later into the interview you'll want to dig a little deeper, look for personal stories or situations where things became difficult. Ideally, you redo the process with many people with the same problem. Step 2: Define the Problem Looking at the interviews, you can now understand the actual needs that people are trying to fulfill with certain activities. One way to do that is to underline the verbs or activities that the people mentioned when talking about their problems: like going for a walk, meeting old friends for tea, or simply going grocery shopping around the corner store. You might realize it's not so much about going out, but more about staying in touch. After your analysis, formulate a problem statement: “Some elderly are afraid to be lonely. The want to stay connected.” Step 3: Ideate Now focus only on the problem statement and come up with ideas that solve the problem. The point is not to get a perfect idea, but rather to come up with as many ideas: like unique virtual reality experiences, senior friendly hover boards or a modified pushcart. Whatever it is, sketch up your best ideas and show them to the people you are trying to help, so you get their feedback. Step 4: Prototype Now take a moment to reflect on what you have learned from your conversations about the different ideas. Ask yourself, how does your idea fit in the context of people's actual lives. Your solution could be a combination of a new idea and what is already being used. Then connect the dots, sketch up your final solution and go build a real prototype that's just good enough to be tested. Step 5: Test Now test your prototype with actual users. Don't defend your idea in case people don't like it, the point is to learn what works and what didn't, so any feedback is great. Then go back to ideation or prototyping and apply your learning. Repeat the process until you have a prototype that works and solves the real problem. Now you are ready to change the world or open shop.

Design Thinking as a problem-solving method has been prevalent in product design for several decades and has more recently been adapted for business and education. And like any process that has enjoyed that kind of longevity, it must periodically adapt to changes in environment and landscape. As the “business of innovation” becomes increasingly important to strategic decision makers in all sectors and industries and across the globe, we near one of those inflection points. In this webinar Bill Burnett, consulting assistant professor and master in design thinking at Stanford University, considers current implementations of design thinking and explores ways in which it can be adapted to solve new problems in better ways.

It combines deep end-user experience, systems thinking, iterative rapid prototyping and multi-stakeholder feedback to guide us through the successive stages in our design. Transcription: Design thinking, is a design process that enables us to solve complex problems, It combines deep end-user experience, systems thinking, iterative rapid prototyping and multi-stake holder feedback to guid us through the successive stages in our design. Design thinking like complex systems is interdisciplinary. It cuts across traditional domains by recognising that everything in our world is designed, thus it takes design out of its comfort zone of building chairs and fancy coffee cups to apply it to all areas from designing effective organisations to creating health care and financial services. The design process is a bit like blowing up a balloon and then slowly letting all the air out of it again, it requires an initial phase of divergent thinking where we ask expansive question to explore the full context and many different possible options, before having to narrow our vision down upon a single solution and refining it through convergent thinking. But this process is not mechanical it is more evolutionary meaning we can not fully foresee the end product from inception, it emerges and thus we need to think about the future in a open way, that means having confidence in the possibility that an unknown outcome is feasible as the whole point of the design process is that we will create something that does not yet exist and thus is unforeseen. But we don’t have to reinvent the design process wheel every time, there are a few broad stages to it which different people will define in different ways but we are going to talk about some of the most often identified phases in the design thinking process, they include the stages of researching ideating, prototyping and testing. These steps don’t necessary follow a linear path; they can occur simultaneously and be repeated. Firstly the researching phase, what we are doing here is not creating a thing, what we are creating is a solution, and this solution is a solution to a problem that a particular person or people have. Thus we need to understand the context within which our system will exist and where it lies in relation to other thing within that environment, it is only when we see the given context within which a pre-existing version of the system operates that we get a full insight into why it is the way it is and from this can begin to conceive of an improved solution. When we don’t understand the context then we will be likely to simply go round in circles, simply reacting to the pre-exists existing solution. One generation of designers decide that straight lines are the greatest thing extolling all their virtues making everything square and rectangular with pointy corners, until the next generation of designers come along who are now sick of straight lines so they start a new revolution of curves and rounded corners, until everyone gets tired of all the curves and rediscovers the straight line again and so on. By understanding the context and the history of the context to a design we can see its parameters, the advantages and disadvantages of both extremes and try to find integrative solution. If we remember there is aways two qualitatively different level to a complex system, the local and the global, as designers of the system we will be dealing with it primary on the macro scale, but at the end of the day everything really plays out on the local level and we need to understand that local context where people interact and live out their lives through these products and services. People can’t always express what exactly the problem is or know exactly what it is they want, so we need deep emersion to piece it together for ourselves, ethnographic studies, customer journey maps, all forms of enduser experience and importantly empathy.

-- See description for transcript and more information -- -Introduction- Sprint: how to solve big problems and test new ideas in just five days… by designer Jake Knapp, who created the 5-day process at Google Ventures in order to help Google initiatives and investments prototype and validate ideas as rapidly and effectively as possible. -Motivation- Entrepreneurs constantly face tough decisions, and their outcome won’t be realized until months of effort have passed. The 5-day sprint is designed to iterate through these decisions and test different alternatives in a very compressed timeframe. Before even building a minimum viable product, the Sprint methodology shortcuts months of debate and development. -Case study- An example from the book is when Blue Bottle coffee wanted to build its online store – a project that would take a long time and require years of refinement. But the initial direction would be crucial, and that’s where the 5-day spring came in. First, the Blue Bottle coffee team mapped out the online purchase process of a customer and refined it with the feedback from experts. Then, they came up with 3 competing designs, prototyped all of them using Keynote, and presented them to potential customers. Based on the feedback, the team actually eliminated the most-favored design! -Here’s how it works- A 5-day sprint starts on Monday. The team maps out in great detail the customer journey, then invites experts to provide their input, and finally decides on one well-defined objective for the week – one thing that’s critical and can be tested. On Tuesday, the team sketches out possible solutions without criticizing or making any decisions. All ideas are sketched out and considered, like a brainstorming session. On Wednesday, the team decides: each member goes around and votes with a sticker on the ideas whiteboarded around the room. The winning idea gets carefully storyboarded in even greater detail. On Thursday, the storyboard gets converted into a prototype in the most efficient way possible. You don’t need to code or manufacture anything. Figure out the absolute minimum that will give your customers an accurate representation of the idea so they can provide feedback. Finally, on Friday, the idea and any competing versions are put to the test. A good interviewer guides customers through the idea without imposing any biases. All while the team watches the reactions through a camera feed, taking notes. At the end of the day, they compare notes and boil them down to the lessons of the sprint. -Conclusion- The 5-day sprint applies to pretty much any type of project. And its success is predicated on getting the right team in place, identifying the right challenge so it’s not too broad, and setting aside the time and effort to focus on the problem. Obviously you can’t run every decision through a 5-day sprint because you need to run a business, but it can accelerate the key decisions and set your company on the right path. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Like what you see?

Published on Oct 22, 2013 Design-oriented firms such as Apple and IDEO have demonstrated how design thinking can affect business results. However, most managers lack a sense of how to use this new approach for issues other than product development and sales growth. Solving Problems with Design Thinking details ten real-world examples of managers who successfully applied design methods at 3M, Toyota, IBM, Intuit, and SAP; entrepreneurial start-ups such as MeYou Health; and government and social sector organizations, including the City of Dublin and Denmark's The Good Kitchen. Using design skills such as ethnography, visualization, storytelling, and experimentation, these managers produced innovative solutions to such problems as implementing strategy, supporting a sales force, redesigning internal processes, feeding the elderly, and engaging citizens. They elaborate on the challenges they faced and the processes and tools they used, providing a clear path to implementation based on the principles and practices laid out in Jeanne Liedtka and Tim Ogilvie's Designing for Growth: A Design Thinking Tool Kit for Managers.

Product management is creative problem solving. As soon as you learn how to think about the variables, you can learn how to build something great. And product manager extraordinaire Christian Arca can take you through it in 2 minutes. Product management boils down thinking about the following issues: 1. Customer needs or wants 2. The solution those needs/wants 3. The product value Needs and wants are problems that people have – things they want to do but don’t have the tools to accomplish, or things that could help them do something better than they currently do. Your product is going to step in, like a comic book superheo, and solve that problem. But there are multiple ways to solve for needs. So it’s important to think about the product value: what are the benefits of the feature or product you want to build? Benefits can help you pick which way, or what feature, you choose in order to solve for a customer’s needs If you want to become a product manager for the ages, or want more entrepreneurial tips and tricks, check out One Month’s accelerated learning blog: learn.onemonth.com http://onemonth.com http://twitter.com/onemonthedu http://facebook.com/onemonthedu http://youtube.com/onemonth

What is PRODUCT DESIGN? What does PRODUCT DESIGN mean? PRODUCT DESIGN meaning - PRODUCT DESIGN definition - PRODUCT DESIGN explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Product design as a verb is to create a new product to be sold by a business to its customers. A very broad concept, it is essentially the efficient and effective generation and development of ideas through a process that leads to new products. Due to the absence of a consensually accepted definition that reflects the breadth of the topic sufficiently, two discrete, yet interdependent, definitions are needed: one that explicitly defines product design in reference to the artifact, the other that defines the product design process in relation to this artifact. Product design as a noun: the set of properties of an artifact, consisting of the discrete properties of the form (i.e., the aesthetics of the tangible good and/or service) and the function (i.e., its capabilities) together with the holistic properties of the integrated form and function. Product design process: the set of strategic and tactical activities, from idea generation to commercialization, used to create a product design. In a systematic approach, product designers conceptualize and evaluate ideas, turning them into tangible inventions and products. The product designer's role is to combine art, science, and technology to create new products that people can use. Their evolving role has been facilitated by digital tools that now allow designers to communicate, visualize, analyze and actually produce tangible ideas in a way that would have taken greater manpower in the past. Product design is sometimes confused with (and certainly overlaps with) industrial design, and has recently become a broad term inclusive of service, software, and physical product design. Industrial design is concerned with bringing artistic form and usability, usually associated with craft design and ergonomics, together in order to mass-produce goods. Other aspects of product design include engineering design, particularly when matters of functionality or utility (e.g. problem-solving) are at issue, though such boundaries are not always clear.

Designers help define the future by envisioning and crafting product experiences. They do this in a number of ways, whether it be by helping to create a strategic product vision through storytelling or through insights-driven, human-centered design. Effective product strategy requires the ability to define a vision that actively works alongside business and technology to design experiences users want in the face of behavioral and computational change. Designers articulate abstract ideas and give them form, by reconciling user needs with business goals and advanced technologies. Data can persuade people, but it doesn’t inspire them to act in the way stories do. A product vision serves as a tangible artifact that provides teams the 10,000 foot view and aligns them around a shared North Star to inspire innovation. Design Is […] is a monthly speaker series on the future of design and creativity. Each public talk is centered on a theme, and the series highlights a broad range of perspectives on everything from human-centered design to VR and ethics.

What is DESIGN RESEARCH? What does DESIGN RESEARCH mean? DESIGN RESEARCH meaning - DESIGN RESEARCH definition - DESIGN RESEARCH explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Design research was originally constituted as primarily research into the process of design, developing from work in design methods, but the concept has been expanded to include research embedded within the process of design, including work concerned with the context of designing and research-based design practice. The concept retains a sense of generality, aimed at understanding and improving design processes and practices quite broadly, rather than developing domain-specific knowledge within any professional field of design. Design Research emerged as a recognisable field of study in the 1960s, initially marked by a conference on Design methods at Imperial College London, in 1962. It led to the founding of the Design Research Society (DRS) in 1966. John Christopher Jones (one of the initiators of the 1962 conference) founded a postgraduate Design Research Laboratory at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology, and L. Bruce Archer founded the postgraduate Department of Design Research at the Royal College of Art, London, becoming the first Professor of Design Research. The Design Research Society has always stated its aim as: ‘to promote the study of and research into the process of designing in all its many fields’. Its purpose therefore is to act as a form of learned society, taking a scholarly and domain independent view of the process of designing. Some of the origins of design methods and design research lay in the emergence after the 2nd World War of operational research methods and management decision-making techniques, the development of creativity techniques in the 1950s, and the beginnings of computer programs for problem solving in the 1960s. A statement by Bruce Archer encapsulated what was going on: ‘The most fundamental challenge to conventional ideas on design has been the growing advocacy of systematic methods of problem solving, borrowed from computer techniques and management theory, for the assessment of design problems and the development of design solutions.’ Herbert A. Simon established the foundations for ‘a science of design’, which would be ‘a body of intellectually tough, analytic, partly formalizable, partly empirical, teachable doctrine about the design process.’ Early work was mainly within the domains of architecture and industrial design, but research in engineering design developed strongly in the 1980s; for example, through ICED—the series of International Conferences on Engineering Design, now run by The Design Society. These developments were especially strong in Germany and Japan. In the USA there were also some important developments in design theory and methodology, including the publications of the Design Methods Group and the series of conferences of the Environmental Design Research Association. The National Science Foundation initiative on design theory and methods led to substantial growth in engineering design research in the late-1980s. A particularly significant development was the emergence of the first journals of design research. DRS initiated Design Studies in 1979, Design Issues appeared in 1984, and Research in Engineering Design in 1989. The development of design research has led to the establishment of design as a coherent discipline of study in its own right, based on the view that design has its own things to know and its own ways of knowing them. Bruce Archer again encapsulated the view in stating his new belief that ‘there exists a designerly way of thinking and communicating that is both different from scientific and scholarly ways of thinking and communicating, and as powerful as scientific and scholarly methods of enquiry when applied to its own kinds of problems’. This view was developed further in a series of papers by Nigel Cross, collected as a book on 'Designerly Ways of Knowing'. Significantly, Donald Schön promoted the new view within his book The Reflective Practitioner, in which he challenged the technical rationality of Simon and sought to establish ‘an epistemology of practice implicit in the artistic, intuitive processes which practitioners bring to situations of uncertainty, instability, uniqueness and value conflict’.

In Chapter 5 of 17 in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, designer and educator Jon Kolko shares why problem solving is neither an art nor science. He sees problem solving as a design process. Kolko sees science as a bucket containing things about the natural world. He sees art as a bucket of self-expression. He also sees design as a third bucket, containing things about the culture and the humanization of technology. Kolko is the executive director of design strategy at venture accelerator, Thinktiv (www.thinktiv.com). He is the founder and director of the Austin School for Design (www.ac4d.com). Previously, he worked at frog design and was a professor of Interactive and Industrial Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). He has authored multiple books on design. Kolko earned his Masters in Human Computer Interaction (MHI) and BFA in Design from Carnegie Mellon University.

Marketing and product design are the same thing. The problem of knowing what product to build is something that both product designers and marketers need to understand intimately in order to do their jobs…the designers in order to design the product and the marketer in order to share the story. Both designers and marketers then need to continue to focus on that problem so they know how to proceed. http://www.focuspdm.com/

How do you analyze a circuit with resistors in series and parallel configurations? With the Break It Down-Build It Up Method! http://www.jesseleemason.com Music by Millish - Download our music (that's me on the acoustic guitar) at the iTunes Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/millish/id128839547 0:00 INTRO: In this video we solve a combination series and parallel resistive circuit problem for the voltage across, current through and power dissipated by the circuit's resistors. 1:32 BREAK IT DOWN: We redraw the circuit in linear form to more easily identify series and parallel relationships. Then we combine resistors using equivalent resistance equations. After redrawing several times we end up with a single resistor representing the equivalent resistance of the circuit. We then apply Ohm's Law to this simple (or rather simplified) circuit and determine the circuit current (I-0 in the video). 7:36 BUILD IT UP: Retracing our redraws, we determine the voltage across and current through each resistor in the circuit using Ohm's Law. 12:51 POWER: After tabulating our solutions we determine the power dissipated by each resistor.

http://www.macromedia-university.com #youchange Video: David Helmut (Concept, camera, postproduction) Title: Integrating Design Thinking Methods into Public Sector Innovation Concept / Organization: Prof. Oliver Szasz, Macromedia University Date: February 26, 2015 Place: Macromedia University of Applied Sciences Munich Summary: In the last decades design has become increasingly recognized as a driver of economic growth. Communication, interaction, product, game and fashion are only a few examples of well-known design disciplines, where designers have successfully used their specific expertise and approaches to create innovation. But the world has become increasingly complex and design has begun to analyse its unique approaches and qualities to tackle problems. Highly complex problems, usually in form of social or cultural challenges, e.g. poverty, sustainability, health, wellness or equality, where many stakeholders with conflicting perspectives are involved, where a multitude of shifting and unfamiliar elements are encountered and where the problem itself is very difficult to define, are labelled with the term “wicked problems”. Design today, with its unique methods and processes, looks way beyond traditional design tasks and has become a crucial contributor to problem solving strategies, where other established innovation processes struggle on their own. In Design Thinking these intellectual and practical design qualities are formalized and combined into a methodology, that emphasizes empathy, ethnographic research, abductive reasoning, playful ideation, and prototyping with rapid testing cycles to provide a structured, yet creative and agile approach to innovation. The field of design today is not only successful in the pursuit of the development of communication and products, but also of services and systems. For instance, designers apply their knowledge and problem solving skills to create e.g. innovative social media communications, they develop products which truly make a difference in peoples’ lives, they invent new meaningful service experiences and they strategically plan new systems and environments to help citizens to actively engage in their communities. An increasing number of private organizations have understood what significant value Design Thinking and its processes can add to their competitive capacity. Yet, in the public sector only very few countries have begun to utilize design-driven methods in order to support innovation within public services. Denmark, France, Australia and the UK are some examples where Design Thinking is considered as a new means to approach innovation projects within the public sector. The Symposium Design Thinking For Public Good 2015 strives to create attention for Design Thinking theory and practice, and aims to connect practitioners from private and public organizations in order to facilitate exchange and to foster learning. I would like to welcome you to this symposium with expert presentations, workshops and panel discussions. You will get the opportunity to explore theory and practice: from methodologies and conceptual models to hands-on techniques and examples of successfully implemented public innovation projects from around the world.
