Zambia, Design & Test
During the Design & Test Phase, Flow Chart users translate problems into solutions using a highly creative, collaborative, energetic, and human-centered approach. Using the insights and opportunities identified during the Define Phase as inspiration, groups of designers, health experts, development specialists, stakeholders, and representatives from the audience come together to rapidly generate a broad array of ideas for possible solutions. Users iteratively refine, prototype, and test these ideas several times in increasing levels of fidelity, using user feedback to inform the final solutions and ensure that they are both useful and usable for those involved in the design.
How can we make our ideas better and more desirable?
By the end of this step, you will have refined the different ideas generated during ideation into a set of prioritized concept(s).
How to conduct this step and achieve its main objectives:
Convert Ideas into Concepts
In your journey through creativity, your concept comprises all the essential components to bring your ideas to life. It’s your guide in turning a simple thought into an actionable plan, providing the steps needed for your idea to thrive.
Tool: Concept Development Canvas
The concept development template is a crucial framework for refining your raw ideas into viable concepts. It integrates details like target audiences, solution functionalities, and behavioral elements to transform abstract ideas into test-ready solutions.
Determine the Prototype
A prototype is an incomplete version of a physical or digital product, to be taken into user testing. At this phase, you will learn how to determine yours.
Tool: Solutions Prototype Canvas
The solutions prototype canvas is a structured tool designed to guide you in creating effective prototypes. This canvas outlines the key processes that your team can use to define the format and structure of their prototypes.
