Design Method Toolkit

This toolkit has been saved 2 times.

A collection of cards describing methods for planning and executing design research, ideation, experimentation and creation within short iterations (sprints). They split the methods into tasks that follow SCREAM; a methodology which is a modified version of SCRUM, tailored to fit within the publisher's design process.
The card fronts contain basic information, such as activity type, category, and duration. The backs contain basic overviews of the methods and how-to instructions. These are intended to plan iterations and divide up tasks between team members. The publisher recommends using the Design Method Toolkit in combination with the DMT Plan Board, your Scrum Board.
The cards can be viewed for free online or ordered via the website for 50 euros.
Prior experience with design sprints or agile methodologies is recommended.

One review for "Design Method Toolkit"

  1. This toolkit is very easy to access. Going through a design process is not necessarily an easy task, that is why it is very helpful when the description of the process, the tools, the tasks, and how to facilitate, are. This link contains a very pedagogical introduction to the toolkit – explaining how to access and use the different tools in the different phases of the design process. The tools themselves are to be found here

    All tools contain a “mark” providing you with an overview of where you are in the process, e.g. “researching” or in a “creative” mode and provides you at the same time with which phase you are in, such as “Know user” or “frame insights”. The toolkit is especially relevant to people with little or no design process experience. And is further relevant for “developers” in both the public and private sector.
