Focusing ResearchPosted: January 28, 2014
This morning Gareth introduced two exercises to help focus, analyse and criticise our project ideas so far: ‘6 Thinking Hats’ and ‘Family Tree’. The 6 Thinking Hats was a peer exercise to analyse and criticise each other’s projects from different perspectives using different roles under each colour hat. From this task I got some interesting questions which I hadn’t thought of that I must now consider and research into. The second task was the family tree, which was putting your product in the centre and branching off the parents as if they were the problems and children as if they were the consequences of the product. This task is to go into depth and try figure out the deep problem and see if it is possible to change it so that the consequences don’t occur anymore.
