Second session started with a 1-hour talk from ZIP world and rib ride about them and their potential futures. Approximately 15 minutes of the session were left; most students were feeling the pressure of the task due to the time period. It was to identify and highlight important key assets to the area and produce a map marking these points. There are certain advantages or positive outcomes can transpire because of resource limitations such as time.
These limitations can cause a group to perform more efficiently, and encourage innovation. Projects can be overly complex in nature meaning assignments may be modified to complete each task more easily, expediting the time in which the projects are completed. Project leaders facing the limitation may also become more innovative, creative and resourceful.
The main goal of the task was to produce many ideas aiming for quantity not quality, as we are using double diamond design process and diverging from the problem.
Team Trex decided to produce a mind map, which was slightly different from the task required adding additional workload to their homework, as they needed to recreate this digitally. It is understandable and logical that they would first seek out which types of assets they needed to find as after all how do you know what to look for in an area? This may have been an unnecessary step given the time constraints of week twos session.
Their homework that was issued the week before was somewhat disappointing, although complete, as two of four user profiles were written by hand. The team were however able to produce 4 distinct personalities. Members of the team should be aim to be more vocal with their ideas but the time over all appeared to function well under the pressure of the session.
