Inspired by the 7 Stages of Creative Problem Solving, I've refined my problem-based process to deliver user-centered designs.
One of the biggest risks of building a product is spending hours of time and a great amount of money, only to build the wrong thing. We need to first figure out whether the problem is a real one that needs solving.
Once a solution is discovered and a product built, it needs to withstand the pressure and rise as the best problem-solver. This only happens through implementation.
Coming up with solutions is a journey. But it's important to make sure the final user is a part of the journey. When thinking through solution's from the user's point of view, those solutions become more tangible and optimal.
Now everything is running. But how do we know that it is running smoothly? By evaluating the experience and process of interaction directly from the user.
