How the Simpsons make data use happen. Amanda Makulec, John Snow, Inc; Michelle Li, Palladium
In this workshop, participants will get hands-on with human centered design techniques. We’ll present cases focused on data and data use, but the ideas and methods could be used by the participants across various technical areas in their future work. Activities are based on the design workshops co-hosted by JSI, MEASURE Evaluation, and Matchboxology (a South African design firm) in Tanzania, South Africa, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Cote d’Ivoire, and Guinea. Participants will put themselves in the shoes of country level Ministry of Health staff and gain hands-on experience using personas (based on actual personas developed in South Africa, personified by Simpsons characters) and journey maps to identify pain points and opportunities along the data use journey.
