Scenariobaserad utveckling

Publicerad: 4 december 2007

Scenario Based Design is an approach chosen for its high potential in putting, and keeping, users at the centre of product development. Scenarios are concrete descriptions of the work activities that a product or service is intended to support, but they are also very flexible, to allow designers to also devise products and services that are highly innovative and which addresses future ways of conducting collaborative work.

Scenarios are used to provoke questions and “what if” discussions in relation to revised or completely new design proposals, and they are written in a natural language so that particular problem situations can easily be understood by all stakeholders in the development project. It is important to note that these scenarios have not developed from thin air; they are based on thorough fieldwork on collaborative design teams in both industrial and educational projects.
