Early Monday morning, catching an uber to nearest airport & sipping a quality coffee & listening to country music. In next 2 hours boarding a flight to customer corporate office, where exciting ideas are put to life !!
Day 1 : Let’s Begin Discovery of whole enterprise interface !!
Monday’s are fresh, brewing with ideas from everyone; once into room of discussion, meeting a bunch of executives – who have kept in pace with industry trends, now bringing a tangential transformation to their enterprise interface with ergonomic readiness for next generation.
Me & Team sat for long hours discussing with stakeholders, audience of enterprise products & uncovering their needs & perspectives while finding answers for
What they are ?
Where they are from ?
Where they want to reach?
What is cultural need for history ?
What is future generation need of Enterprise? And many more..
Exploration never completes, but information can be made concrete; now “Falling in love with problems” is an approach for solutions. Suggestions, Improvisations, Consultation, confirmations all follow in tandem.
Walking for lunch in enterprise cafeteria; telling each other let’s grab a bite of salad , while thinking of even better suggestions & designs in mind.
Always believed, Ideas are manifestation of prolonged Imagination, while imagining while imagining How the idea can be ideated with solution to be solved, evening 6 rings & my realization of morning flight jet lag keeps reminding.
Day 2 : Continued Exploration with an imagination of future interface !!
Tuesday morning, Nice sleep & morning breakfast energized to "stand – present – validate Ideas & design on storyboard & whiteboard". This feeling of satisfaction of our imagination in customer eyes is best part of career.
Now, we present draft “Journey maps” & “Persona developments”; C-Executives will have a sense of transformation of organization. Responsibilities are shared, now we are partners in their “to be success journey”.
Now, Once tool kits are opened : Imaginations are taking shape as creations
Extensive Interviews are being painted as Context maps, Observations, Visual analogical diagrams.
Business & competitor trends & user behavior patterns are educated mutually
Business Facts & destinations are meticulously measured.
Day 3: Designing the future interface with aspirations of feedback loop !!
Wednesday, problems need to be addressed is this the memo :
Designing the interface for providing ergonomic experience; vision of design are phrased with future innovation & Legacy inclusion with HUMAN first & TECHNOLOGY follows approach.
Again different set of tool kits are utilized to create :
Storyboards followed by Sketches of each pattern & design with behavior simulation to imagination ease.
Digital Prototypes : "Behavior enabled prototypes & wireframes" are created to undergo a feedback loop with users & stakeholders
Prioritization of ideas in order of business value creation.
Day 4 : Delving the intricacies to develop Epitome Design for Analytics, Marketing & many arms of enterprise !!
