As part of my ‘Design as Competitive Strategy’ course, our team is designing an improved information management system which will help an MBA student extract better value from their 2 years in the program.
In this 12 week course we have taken an indepth look at working on a product design process which will help us arrive at the best possible solution to the problem. I must say that this has been one of my best team projects at Haas.
Here is an over-view of our first prototype. We worked on the production of this video today by turning a room at my house into a production studio. Using iLife, iWork on our Macs made this production a joy. Can’t live without it. The beers and pop-corn and the 90 deg weather made it even more fun.
I enjoy designing things and I’m at my happiest working on technology products. Here is a flashback to another fun project that I worked on 10 years ago in my previous masters degree. A very different problem, selling chilly powder in the Ahmedabad market! Project Mirchi.
Back to the present, take a look at the prototype below and feel free to send us feedback. Keep a lookout for our next prototype.
