Structured Design Process
A key aspect of our work is the use of what we call "Structured
Design Processes" to improve the organization, efficiency
and success of our projects.
The majority of The Berndt Group's work combines a range
of considerations including strategy, design, implementation
and infrastructure, and the role of the Structured Design
Process is to correctly align decisions and contingent sign-off
points so as to reduce the possibility of waste or confusion.
Extremely popular with our clients, these structured processes
keep projects on budget and timeline, while getting the maximum
value from our creative and technical work.
Typically, a high-level view of our structured design process
includes the following phases:
- A discovery phase, including scope review,
stakeholder interviews, best practices research, and in
some cases, market research.
- Development and discussion of user experience recommendations, including information architecture, design requirements, and general functional requirements for application behavior.
- Detailed plans for project design, including
graphic design prototypes, content taxonomies, content object
models, and detailed technical descriptions of business
- Creation of working prototypes and proofs of concept.
- Content population and extensive testing.
