Project Management: Begin in Class; Finish for Week Three
Step 1: Write Down Your Tasks
Step 2: Establish the Order of Tasks
Step 3: Create Some Milestones
Step 4: Calculate the Timescale
Create a Project Roadmap, Gantt Chart (or other timeline) to define all the aspects and stages of your design process, as well as how and when you’ll deliver them.
You may create it in the software/app of your choice, from Illustrator to Sketch to Trello to Google Sheets.
The chart should encompass the remaining 14 weeks of the semester (remember Spring Break week!).
Important: If you intend to include this in your portfolio for Ideate, you must plan to have a working version done by WEEK 13.
That means you must present that working version in class on WEEK 12 (APRIL 29).
Here are some things you’ll want to include for a typical Product/UX Case Study. (Hint: we’re already at interviews/surveys.)
Competitive Research and Analysis
User Analysis (based on user studies above)
User Journey Map/Storyboard
Information Architecture (IA)
Iterations/Revisions (repeat as necessary)
- Refine your Proposal based on suggestions made in class
- Finish the Project Planning you began in class and include it in your Proposal
