Learn about needfinding


1.1 Deliverables

For this we watched the HCI lecture of Scott Klemmer video, then some other references available on Internet. We found that to do need finding there are basically three steps. First Observation, By observing people we can know what are their need, values and goals.in observation u look at only what is happening and do not try to draw a conclusion. different ways to do Observations Watching Doing Buying Asking Reflecting Reading

other than observation best practice to manage your thoughts are Interpretation, why you think you are hearing and seeing those things, why such behavior. Following are the kind of data that we organize into frameworks to make interpretations. People Objects Activity Frames Needs

Now last is finding Needs which are verbs and not nouns.when you turn interpretations into the motivations of people’s behavior, is what you do in needs.And finding need is important because they can lead us to the unanswered opportunity for design.

2. Determine the needs of workers and requesters (from panels and from readings)
