  •   1. EMPATHIZE 

    “To create meaningful innovations, you need to know your users and care about their lives.”

    Empathy is the centerpiece of a human-centered design process. The Empathize mode is the work you do to understand people, within the context of your design challenge.  As a design thinker, the problems you are trying to solve are rarely your own—they are those of a particular group of people; in order to design for them, you must gain empathy for who they are and what is important to them.

    1. What is Empathy?
    2. WHY Empathize?
    3. HOW to empathize?

     “Customer obsession is the essence of great design.
    Get in the heads and lives of the people you’re providing solution for.” 

  •  2. DEFINE

     “Framing the right problem is the only way to create the right solution.”

    The Define mode is critical to the design process because it results in your point-of-view (POV): the explicit expression of the problem you are striving to address. More importantly, your POV defines the RIGHT challenge to address, based on your new understanding of people and the problem space.

  •  3. IDEATE

     “It’s not about coming up with the ‘right’ idea, it’s about generating the broadest range of possibilities.”

    You ideate in order to transition from identifying problems to creating solutions for your users. Ideation is your chance to combine the understanding you have of the problem space and people you are designing for with your imagination to generate solution concepts.

    1. What is Ideate
    2. WHY Ideate
    3. HOW to Ideate

     “Build to think and test to learn.”

    A PROTOTYPE is a miniature example of the system, product, or service you want to provide.
     You need to prototype in order to help people understand your service or product enough to express opinions and reasons behind possible buying decisions”

    1.What is Prototype?
    2. WHY Prototype?
    3. HOW to Prototype?


  •  5.TEST

    “Testing is an opportunity to learn about your solution and your user.”

    Testing is another opportunity to understand your user, but unlike your initial empathy mode, you have now likely done more framing of the problem and created prototypes to test.

    “Before investing resources into any idea, create and test a PROTOTYPE with potential customers. Analyze feedback and adapt the product or service to fit customer needs.”

    1. What is testing
    2. WHY test
    3. HOW to test

    The assessment requires you applying the design thinking process to identify a problem, develop a solution to that problem, prototype your solution, pitch that solution to the class as your potential customers, and receive feedback.
