Lorenzo Calzolari - Developer
Silvia Marchini - Ux designer and project manager As a UX designer, I have designed the interfaces, their flow and created the written content.
As a project manager, I coordinated the different competencies involved in the website development.
Every year Oper.space carries out several innovation projects, applying the design thinking approach and involving corporate professionals and students. The DT mindset website is born-out of the desire to track how these collaborators evolve their mindset when engaged in these projects.
The DT Mindset website enables Oper.space collaborators to do a design thinking mindset self-assessment through a scientifically validated questionnaire.
Design thinking mindset stands for a designer's capability to tackle innovation projects with an attitude derived from the design thinking approach (ex. dealing with uncertainty, being experimentation oriented, etc...).
The DT mindset website is now online; its UX has been tested and validated with users; the next steps will be to launch its first filling round and implement different functions. Stay tuned!
Data about design thinking mindset are collected for a scientific purpose, therefore the website need to be:
believable , since it is based on scientific studies,
engaging to encourage its first compilation and repeat it in the future, to track each user’s mindset evolution.
Bias-proof, in order to foster honest answers.
Clear and accessible to people who aren’t too familiar with design thinking and are about to tackle their first design thinking project.
