Lightning Demos ⚡️
The team researched other dashboard products and illustrate what they like or dislike about them. Each member of the team presents the product they picked. We capture these ideas to help generate individual ideas for the sketching rounds.
3 Rounds of sketching. Each person presents their concept sketches and the team then votes on the features they like the best. The most voted on features help us shape our storyboard.
We create and evaluate the storyboard to make sure the team is comfortable with the story we are telling and the way we plan to solve the issues.
Build Prototype 👷🏻♀️
The last day calls for primarily only designers. We have PMs on standby to supply us with data and answer questions that might come up. We review the storyboard, make sure everything checks out and then we begin prototyping. Designers get assigned screens so we can build the prototype in tandem.
User Testing 👨🏻💻
After the prototype was completed we hopped on the phone with a few users that had recently gone through the on-boarding process.
Users were not able to poke any major holes in the concept, which was great. What was even better is they were very quickly able to provide us with more insights and ideas to incorporate. We heard about a few issues that had not came up in previous research.
