Stand for Thursday, Apr 30

What did we learn about our user(s) since last meeting?
We did not learn much, we have been designing our experiment.
What else has our team accomplished that we are proud of since last meeting?
We have completed designing our user testing experiment, and our excited to execute on Saturday!
Did you meet last meeting's goal(s)? What goal(s) did your team not meet?
Yes, our goal was to come up with a course to have the people in the biking study follow and talk to Evanston to see if it was ok for us to complete our study on city streets,
What is our team's specific and measurable goal by next meeting?
Collect data from 25 participants in our study on Saturday.
What are the major obstacles stopping us from achieving our goal by next meeting, and how will we resolve them?
The major obstacle stopping us from achieving our goal is getting enough people to sign up for the study as well as Evanston not letting us do testing in the street

1. What is our team's progress on the last goal, and what did we learn about our user(s) since then?

We went over more in depth research on licensing and potential education programs, specifically looking at certificates for parents to give children and BikeNYC.

2. What else has our team accomplished that we are proud of since last meeting?

We talked about pros and cons of these potential programs, considering: distribution; population; and if we want it to be tangible and or experience-based.

We also decided that we're going to continue!


3. What is our team's goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-related) by next meeting?

We will go through what a service based bike education would look like and potentially what we could do to differentiate streets for bikes and cars ( ie. bike traffic light)

4. What are the major obstacles stopping us from achieving this goal, and how will we resolve them?

Shortcomings of past license initiatives. Coming up with solutions to these shortcomings.

1. What is our team's progress on the last goal, and what did we learn about our user(s) since then?
We had about 12 interviews from Critical Mass. We have learned that bikers can oftentimes think that accidents are completely driver's fault. We also learned that in Poland there are licenses given to children for biking. We learned that people are not opposed to the idea of having signage to increase hand signal literacy.

2. What else has our team accomplished that we are proud of since last meeting?

We conducted interviews with users as well as gained insights about two main deign directions. We have done more in depth research.

3. What is our team's goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-related) by next meeting?
By next meeting we will have more in depth research about licensing programs and education programs that have been implemented.

4. What are the major obstacles stopping us from achieving this goal, and how will we resolve them?
Overcoming the regulatory obstacles that come with implementing an educational program rather than a product.

1. What is our team's progress on the last goal, and what did we learn about our user(s) since then?
We have decided we are going to work to solve the problem of people not knowing the hand signals. Since last time we updated, we have learned that there will be a lot of users at critical mass on Friday!

2. What else has our team accomplished that we are proud of since last meeting?

We have started to discuss continuing, we have planned a large session of interviewing users at critical mass, and we have brainstormed some preliminary solutions to our hand signal problem.

3. What is our team's goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-related) by next meeting?
Have 20 interviews from Critical Mass and have a mockup plan.

4. What are the major obstacles stopping us from achieving this goal, and how will we resolve them?
Coordinating getting as many people as possible to Critical Mass and asking the right questions.

1. What is our team's progress on the last goal, and what did we learn about our user(s) since then?

Parring down our directions based on feedback from the survey to: biking education, hand signals, and visibility between bikes and cars. From these directions we made HCW statements:
1. HCW: educate people on how to safely ride in the street?
2. HCW: improve the use of hand (turn) signals?
3. HCW: improve cars being able to see bikers day and night?


2. What else has our team accomplished that we are proud of since last meeting?

We got over 80 responses on our survey and started thinking more concretely about a direction to take.

3. What is our team's goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-related) by next meeting?

We will compare the implementation and impact of the three directions, and from there decide what direction to take. At the next meeting, after choosing a direction, we will hopefully start brainstorming possible solutions to the direction.

4. What are the major obstacles stopping us from achieving this goal, and how will we resolve them?

We had to end the meeting to get to class, so we will pick up where we left off at our meeting on Sunday.

What did we accomplish since last meeting?
We created many questions and put together a survey about bike safety

By next meeting we will have the results of our survey, and will come in with the insights we've made!

Obstacles: We have many possible directions to take which is a bit overwhelming. However this meeting we are going to look at what we have and decide.

Big decisions: Thinking about our target population and deciding what the best form of a solution is.

What did we accomplish since last meeting?
We interviewed a Jimmy Johns delivery guy and gained many insights from his experience biking for work. We also determined the survey questions to send out.

By next meeting we will have sent out a survey to share on forums by contacting or following up with the groups we assigned.

Obstacles: We have many possible directions to take which is a bit overwhelming

What did we accomplish since last meeting?
We started synthesizing our findings and came up with questions to ask users (I'll post the questions later tonight). Started figuring out a direction to take the project.

By next meeting we will share our user findings and start forming HCW statements.

Obstacles: deciding whether we want to something more physical or service based.
Finding quality users

Big decisions: deciding whether we want to head in a more physical or service based direction

Hey everyone! Justin asked me to follow your project and comment from time to time :) hope it's helpful...

If you haven't already, I would also suggest devising a user recruitment strategy! If it's not a team role on your charter, I'd suggest ensuring someone takes on recruitment as their major responsibility as their may be significant lead time with this. Bike stores are a great node of congregation for your user and there are A BUNCH in Evanston and Chicago, so you should be in good shape, but do make sure to act early for user recruitment! Cheers
