Carefully crafted elements come together into one amazing design
Not long ago, user research and design thinking were what other people did, mainly specialists in the research world. Research was a slow and professional practice that only bigger firms might undertake so it certainly wasn’t on the radar for entrepreneurs to pursue.
That’s all changing now and it’s worth looking into. For example, innovators know that expectations for better services and personalized deliverables are on the rise. “How exactly will you help me?” is the chorus. Clients who could use what we’re offering want these specific needs met quickly, meaningfully and without being sold to. They also want to be heard and invited in to influence what gets created as well. In short, research is not about intermittent surveys to gather demographics on user “data”, but more about relationships and how to improve the worlds clients find themselves in.
Consequently, disciplines that zero in on what can be improved are starting to matter more. Learning to fail quickly and adapt to new circumstances and contexts is already on the horizon as a response to meeting these needs. It is even becoming a methodology for differentiation. And, by the way, design thinking is for everyone, not just visual or industrial designers.
