What is Design Thinking?

  • Design Thinking is an agile method that helps us humans systematically solve complex issues, and dramatically simplify decision-making.
  • Design Thinking assumes that problems can be solved better when people with different skills work together in a creative atmosphere.
  • By focusing on activating the right hemisphere of the brain and thus “intuition and emotion,” people’s needs and motivations are placed at the center, and ideas are developed and immediately tested with customers.

What is Customer Journey Mapping?

  • A User or Customer Journey Map visualizes how a user experiences a product, brand or service, in individual steps, and how they feel along the way.
  • Journey mapping is a wonderful opportunity to gather key decision makers and stakeholders, to promote understanding of users, and to set priorities and make ideas concrete.
  • In addition to the User or Customer Journey Map, there are also Experience Maps and Service Blueprints, which can be used differently depending on the project context.

UX in Product Development

  • Quality usability and user experience lead to users enjoying a product – and are therefore essential success factors to reaching business targets and goals in the long term.
  • User-centered design and agile development processes are rarely closely intertwined, but solutions exist to integrate both areas effectively and sustainably.
  • Tested UX product designs save costs in the development process by reducing unforeseen issues and last minute changes.
