It’s easy to solve the wrong problems. Good design relentlessly questions assumptions and reframes the problem to be solved. We know this, and yet, HOW to actually reframe a problem is missing from our conversations.
In this session, Stephen P. Anderson will share tips that have helped him cut through the noise of requests and requirements, to focus on the real problem(s) to be solved. Specifically, you’ll pick up ways to see a problem from different perspectives, ways to ask why, how to draw upon seemingly unrelated experiences, how to separate real from perceived constraints, and most importantly, ways to keep yourself in check, so as not to solve the wrong problem (or if you do, you do so intentionally, for a strategic purpose!).
Whether you’re designing strategies or screens, you’re sure to pick up a few new mental hacks that you’ll no doubt use on a daily basis.
