💜 Test phase
Testing is your chance to gather feedback, refine solutions, and continue to learn about your users. The test mode is an iterative mode in which you place low-resolution prototypes in the appropriate context of your user’s life. Prototype as if you know you’re right, but test as if you know you’re wrong.
Create authentic experiences for users to test your prototypes.
Learn more about your user
Testing is another opportunity to build empathy through observation and engagement—often yielding unexpected insights.
Refine your prototypes and solutions
Testing informs the next iterations of prototypes. Sometimes this means going back to the drawing board.
Test and refine your Point of View
Testing may reveal that, not only did you get the solution wrong, but you also framed the problem incorrectly.
