WHY METHODKIT FOR PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT?
We wanted to create a smart tool that highlights the most important bits and pieces for successful product development. It is hard to keep everything in one’s mind. And even if you do manage to reach an understanding, the rest of the team might not!
MethodKit for Product Development is a deck of cards that helps you clarify thoughts and develop ideas. It gives you an overview of the key aspects of working with product development and design. A tool to think with, to use for workshop organizing and to facilitate discussions.
MethodKit for Product Development contains 65 illustrated aspect cards, each with a key issue or method that aids in defining and giving structure to your product development. The cards become catalysts to accelerate the idea development process, they support you when you get stuck and give you an overview. We believe that the cards makes things so much easier. We ourselves even use the MethodKit for Product Development for developing new tools!
A new feature introduced with this deck is mini-icons (top-right corner) indicating cards that are relevant to a specific branch of product development.
- Cards with no symbol: Applicable in all forms of product development
- Cards with Round wave symbol: For analogue products
- Cards with Square data symbol: For digital products
- All cards together: For digital hardware products
The icons have been crafted with usefulness and simplicity in mind. They are representations of the different parts of doing projects.
HOW TO USE
MethodKit for Product Development can be used in a range of different situations. Prioritize tasks, define the scope, map products, sort out what is important and discuss with support from the cards. Use them to create grids, follow-up meetings, walls, mind maps, grids with overview of the product, evaluations, client meetings, structure in meetings and for brain dumps.
