Cross discipline collaboration benefits from group think, a consolidation of soft system methodology and user focused design that all starts with design thinking that sees clients, designers, developers and information architects working together to address user problems and needs. As with any great adventure, design thinking starts with exploration and discovery.
In this session, we will examine the high level tenants of system thinking, expand the scope of user thinking to include tools and devices that users employ to find out designs and delve into the specifics of design thinking, its methods and outcomes. A Discovery Session framework will be presented along with a case study where these methods have been applied.
Session Takeaways * An understanding of the developer side of user experience. * An introduction to design thinking as it applies to Information Architecture and User Experience design. * A prescriptive project discovery process with proven success in delivering a shared understanding of user needs in the context of business goals.
