Design Ethnography for Lean Teams

Hans's insight:

Lean production is a popular management philosophy that attempts to reduce resources spent on work that will not generate value to the end users. I have a clear mission as a designer that is aligned with most lean principles, that is to make the digital world a better place... for people! But if we want to design for people we must first understand people, so in order to create great user experiences in lean design teams we must starts to do some great ethnography. Here is an inspiring slideshow from TLCLabs that should convince any product manager.

Great find, Hannes! The study of HCI never underestimates user research, doesn't matter how lean. It is extremely important to understand why we have to do this. Great designers know they design for others, not for themselves.

Hans's insight:

Interesting article about different design strategies. It covers agile, lean and waterfall approaches. Like real life (almost) nothing is universal, it's all about adaptation. "Give the man a fish and he has food for one day, teach him how to fish and he has food for the rest of his life" someone said. To be a designer is a bit similar I think, one fish is simply not enough. There is a jungle of tools and methods to apply on your project, but if you don't know when/how to use them, it doesn't matter.
