Explore Methods


Here you will find all the templates for the Explore module. Basically, the methods can be organized into two groups: There are “synthesis methods” that help us to classify data and to interpret information, and there are “ethnographic methods” that help us to collect the correct data during a qualitative field survey. These two groups of methods go hand in hand. They are tools for innovation development. We can not be innovative if we do not use qualitative methods and synthesis methods! Ist our responsibility to make the right choice: Each project needs an individually selected tool set.


The qualitative interview

Explore method 1

The qualitative interview helps us to capture specific information and to gain true-to-life insights about our users and their way of life.

Explore method 5.1

The persona synthesis cluster helps to get early results even in the case of escalating research.

Persona

Explore method 5.2

The persona is a tool to understand with the living conditions of our user. It represents our synthesized knowledge about the user group.

Value Proposition Chain

Explore method 6

The Value Proposition Chain method enables us to do user-centered innovation development into the business-to-business (B2B) sector.

Research Mind Map

User Journey

Explore method 10

The User Journey guides us through the process that the user experiences with a product or service.

Fly on the Wall

Explore method 11

We take on the role of a silent observer. We want to observe our user and his behavior.
