We are a small team of three people. A product owner, a scrum master and me. We work remotely. We have an open channel of communication and cooperative work, they are totally involved in the process. I suggested the plan and schedule where we established the process for work prioritisation and milestones.
The product owner have knowledge of the target user. He is the right person to point the team on the right direction.
It is a greenfield project from concept to deliver.
1. DISCOVER Top
During this stage I conduct the research. I looked at the competitive landscape and interview people.
Methods: user interviews
During the research I conduct interviews to gain insight into what people experience when using competitors website.
1.1 Understanding the Users
1.1 Understanding the Users Top
Who are we designing for
As part of the user research I chose three personas who will be the primary users of the website:
1.2 What is Currently Out There Top
Methods: competitive analysis
We conduct an extensive research among direct competitors. Here’s a short summary that highlights a selection of competitors and the key findings that are relevant to our project.
1.3 Identify the best way to make the website user friendly Top
Methods: user flow
2. DEFINE Top
2.1 What are the current pain points? Top
Determine how people approach platforms similar to this project and what the current pain points are.
3. DEVELOP Top
Test initial ideas, creating paper prototypes and digital wireframes
3.1 Idea generation Top
Methods: design studio
I brainstorm ideas around such topics as how the user can approach the website, understand the results and analyse data. I test the competitor’s website with users and identify usability problems. I look at the user flow developed on the previous stage (discovery).
3.2 Testing initial ideas Top
Methods: rapid paper prototypes, user testing
Based on the ideas generated during the brainstorm, I create rapid paper prototypes that I started testing with users. I go through several rounds of iterations to ensure that users could complete the tasks and understand the functionality behind the features.
3.3 Iterative evolution Top
Methods: paper prototypes, digital wireframing, user testing, clickable prototyping in InVision
Simple paper prototypes evolve into more detailed and high fidelity wireframes that are tested and adjusted along the way.
4. DELIVER Top
I create a clickable prototype that address the journey of the two main users
