Facilitating Group Decisions: A Tracking App Challenge (Part One)

This is Week #3 of the UX/UI Design Ironhack’s Bootcamp, and the challenge this time was to create a tracking app. Will I survive this process on my own?

Stage1: Empathize

The first step for this project was to look for brands that are already offering the kind of service I was looking to design.

Stage2: Define

Working with the data collected, I put together the main things that stood out.

How Might We statements

Olivia needs to have all of her friends’ opinions before they make a decision to trust that everyone has been heard.

Olivia also wants to know that the others are on their way to the meetup location to avoid getting annoyed waiting too long over there.

Stage3: Ideate

Now that we have defined our problems, we need to find solutions to them.

Stage4: Prototype

Let’s apply our solutions in the first prototype!

Paper prototyping is fun!

What next?

This week’s project was a lot of fun. It was very exciting to work on my own after having worked as a team for the first two weeks of the Bootcamp but it also forced me to adjust the pace.
