Tasks for the day

Do at least one of these 3 tasks and add a note about it in your learning diary.

Option 1


Have you ever gone back into the field and validated a design or a solution with your target audience?

If yes, share that with your team If no, find people on other teams who have and have them explain why it was important to validate.

Option 2


It is likely that the concept you're creating requires a significant set of changes, whether from people or local governance or both.

How can you convince them to make this change?

Option 3


Validating with those who are going to receive the benefits of your concept is vital.

Look up the famous case of the "Play Pump" and reflect on what went wrong here and how they could have validated their concept better. Can you think of any other examples?
