"Alex's ability to cohesively structure a project, run it transparently, visualise his thinking, and deliver the final product is a gift to any team. He works wonders when handing over designs to other teams and departments.
Most inspiring is the energy he puts forward to every new challenge-- a new software, a new project, or running a new workshop. I still haven't seen him back down from a challenge."
"It was a pleasure for Alex to be part of DICE. His consistent high standard of work contributed largely to company wide growth. He led to the building and improvement of internal CMS and CRM tools. He is hard working, enthusiastic for anything he is tasked with, and is always hungry to learn and develop. Alex will be an asset to your team."
- Identify people's problems and define common trends
- Understand why they're are having problems
- Find out what is required to solve their problems
- Establish any limitations
- Ideate based on the requirements and limitations
- Assume possible solutions that can later be tested
- Build prototypes that mimic real experiences
- Do just enough to quickly measure and learn
- Test the biggest assumptions first
- Determine if the solution solved their problems
- Understand why the solution succeeded or failed
- Identify the essential components for a solution
- Ensure the essentials are within our limits
Working in teams utilises skills from a variety of departments, meaning we can better solve complex problems. Learning together puts less emphasis on documentation and more focus on building better solutions.
Failing is not failure. The quicker we can disprove the wrong design, the closer we get to building the right solution. Reacting to change can significantly reduce investment of time and money into bad ideas.
Honest and direct feedback is essential for getting the best out of people and the most from a project. A candid approach quickly builds empathy for a user and your team.
