The approach that I use in my activities is Design Thinking, a human-centred approach that is guided by the values of empathy, creativity and collaboration. I am going to briefly present an example of one of the Design projects which I led with the Innovation and Design team that I am currently responsible for, from its conception to its delivery. Pictures and videos made by me.
The challenge presented to me by the CIO was to deliver the first MVP of an app to our business clients. The first step was to select 5 entrepreneurs to have a conversation with the objective of comprehending their current pains and needs.
I chose the Design Sprint method to conduct the design work with the participation of an interdisciplinary team. Based on the research results, we converged the insights to identify potential value hypotheses to offer to the entrepreneurs.
Based on the choices made by the team, we started the rapid prototyping work by creating a collaborative storyboard, that was converted by me to a high-fidelity prototype made in Adobe XD.
With the prototype ready to be validated, we decided to attend a local event and offer a gift to entrepreneurs who tested our prototype and gave us their feedback. I also created a short video with scenes of the Design Sprint process:
After the feedback session was done, I set up a squad to develop the MVP, using Scrum and DevOps. The MVP was released by the squad in alpha testing after 3 months of development. Watch here the testimony of the first user of the MVP:
Finished the project, I also conducted a feedback session with the design team, to identify opportunities to improve our Design process. The app currently keeps being incremented by our IT.
