Human Driven Design and Innovation of Everyday

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsProfessional


    User and usability studies have been conducted in order to get better effectiveness, efficiency, and user satisfaction and user acceptance for new products and services. Even though the design approach is said to be human-centred or user-centred the design of new products and services has been quite technology or market driven. Instead of putting technology or market to the core of design process and product de-velopment the human needs of everyday life should form the fundamental basis of design. Human Driven Design and Innovation (HDDI) refers to the new design approach which tries to broaden the per-spective from focused product development process model to the more holistic design perspective. Sce-nario-Based Design (SBD) has been implemented widely to the concept and product development proc-esses. Especially in the development of Information and Communication Technologies the Scenario-Based Design approach has been utilized widely though with different variations and modifications. Sce-narios have been used in human-centred design of computing applications and they seem to be especially useful and popular when designing smart environments and inventing new possibilities to utilise new technologies in our living environments. In this paper I’ll present revised scenario-based design model as a possible human driven design tool instead of being currently still quite technology driven and human-centred.
