The design process
is one of evolution,

The leader is the one who sees
the vision and facilitates team
members’ contributions to its
creation and execution.

  36. It’s laid out too much like [popular service]. We should be different. The new Spotify design is perhaps even worse than the old Spotify design. The visual hierarchy and underlying IA are terrible. No. That won’t work. What if we do it this way... It needs more flululululuh!! The wireframes are still not answering our problem and are not providing enough an easier solution for the page. Change the order of the screens so that the 3rd and first one are switched. It doesn't have enough spunk. What kind of company shuts down a much-loved service like Google Reader but keeps the vegetative Google Plus? We're disappointed in this solution. We're going to have our own designers come up with one. Looks ugly. Make it pretty. What. The hell. Is this? I would never use this. I don’t like the layout. We should make that a dropdown instead of radio buttons. None of this is what I asked for. This is terrible. I have no idea what the lines mean. I like the paper form better. I'm just not feeling it. I don't know what, but it isn't right yet. Just needs to be more innovative. Make it look more like SharePoint.Here is a rewrite. My intention is to sharpen the language, make it more precise.

  44. 1 WHAT HAPPENS Individuals sketch as many ideas as they can come up with in 5-8 minutes. WHY Generate as many ideas as possible without time for over-analyzing.
  45. 1 2 WHAT HAPPENS Individuals sketch as many ideas as they can come up with in 5-8 minutes. WHAT HAPPENS Individuals sketch 1 idea in 5-8 minutes based on ideas & critique from the previous round. WHY Generate as many ideas as possible without time for over-analyzing. WHY Allow individuals to form their own conclusions on the strongest ideas.
  46. 1 2 3 WHAT HAPPENS Individuals sketch as many ideas as they can come up with in 5-8 minutes. WHAT HAPPENS Individuals sketch 1 idea in 5-8 minutes based on ideas & critique from the previous round. WHAT HAPPENS Teams collaboratively sketch 1 idea for 20-25 minutes based on the previous 2 rounds. WHY Generate as many ideas as possible without time for over-analyzing. WHY Allow individuals to form their own conclusions on the strongest ideas. WHY Understand how groups compromise & where consensus has surfaced.
  47. Collaboration is a mindset... ...not a byproduct of colocation.
  48. If you have a good grasp of the patterns in the creative process as carried out by the artists and makers we all so admire, you can see the weak points in collaboration as it is carried out in many organizations... ...and fix them.
