Initial Set of Questions

By design4research(40)

In some ways we generated more questions than answers! But I think the questions help us understand the significant issues in beginning to apply prototypes as probes in research.

What is the value of using a prototype as a probe?

What methods can you use to probe for user needs?

How can you design a prototype for a specific purpose?

How do you manage and analyze the findings from this research?

How can you manage the tension between driving toward and solution and wanting to probe further?

How is this different from a research artifact? When is it important?

What is the distinction between a prototype's structure and its purpose?

What makes a good or bad probe?

When is it okay to use experiential (vs. conceptual) probes?

What is the ROI on prototypes as probes in Product Development?

What is the dark side to using prototypes as probes?

How do you explain and talk about prototypes as probes?

What are common/better terms to describe prototypes as probes? ...to clients, management, users?

What are the many forms that prototypes can take? Can we create a framework for them?

How do you design an effective study using prototypes as probes?

What is a probe in research? Does it have a place in ethnography?

How does this method fit within the principles of Participatory Design?
