The Problem

Your job as a designer is first to set yourself up for success by turning raw ideas into problem statements.

1

Beware the idea

These are user suggestions, client requests, and/or epiphanies.
Don't jump into them yet. Raw ideas lead to wasted time and resources.

2

Question the idea

Dig deeper. There's usually hidden motivation behind every idea or request.

Uncover the root cause.
Ask why they came up with the idea.
What lead you to that idea?
What situation where you in that brought about the issue?

Discover the real goal, this is what you should solve for. You'll realise there might be more ways to solving this problem.

3

Create a problem statement

Distill your findings into a single sentence that:
A good problem sttatement alloows for a variety of solutions
Takes into account context and coonstraints

4

Fix a deadline. Flex the scope

Commit to launching something quickly, 3-6 weeks. Without a deadline you'll be making tweaks and improvements forever, without launching.
โ€
Adjust the scope of the project to fit within the timeline set. You can always make improvements after shipping a project.
