Stand for Thursday, Aug 13

What’s your sprint goal for this week?
Same.
Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We visited the Boys and Girls Club, and tested all of our mockups at the site. We learned that teenagers tend to favor video games, sports, and candy for activities; they liked doing arts and crafts; and they liked promotional material that is bright and advertises activities. Another interesting observation we made was that teenage boys pay more attention to colors, while girls pay more attention to text. When we tested the website with the site coordinators, they appreciated having site-specific guides and templates, but they didn't understand the networking portion as much.
What will you achieve between now and the next stand?
We will continue to organize our findings from the site visit, prepare for crit, and participate in the workshop. We also might refine mockups, depending on feedback and our observations.
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
Potentially finding more users; however, we have achieved the baseline for the user group that we are looking for, so more user testing would be nice but not necessary for this sprint goal.

Bryan Berger - These are some really awesome insights!

Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We refined our design goals and listed what we wanted to learn for each concept during the workshop with Michael Chapman from IDEO. We also tried to call site coordinators to set up testing times. We worked with GCFD to set up other site visits as well. We also continued to work on our testing plan.

What’s your sprint goal for this week?
Same.
Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We finished the fun truck activity sheet and printed out our redesigned posters. We had a conference call with Greater Chicago Food Depository/No Kid Hungry (Bob and Suzy). They gave us feedback about our possible solutions and talked about the scalability of each one. They really liked the toolkit and the ideas to implement solutions, they were worried though about the implementation of the fun truck/food truck/website so they gave us ideas on how to just take parts of those as short term solutions. We had crit later and received more feedback which was helpful.
What will you achieve between now and the next stand?
Finalize mock ups for testing, finish testing guide, find out when we are doing site visits to test.

What’s your sprint goal for this week?
Same
Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We finished the promo redesign by creating about 10 different flyers that test wording, colors, and overall design. We also finished the mock-up of our website by drawing it out on paper and animating it on POP so that it allows you to click on things. We made a plan on how to mock-up the Fun Truck and Food Truck. We also toured Gensler today, which was super cool.
What will you achieve between now and the next stand?
We have a Skype interview with GCFD tomorrow morning to go over our designs and set up testing times for next week. We will also finish the mock-ups for the Fun Truck and Food Truck. We will prepare for Crit and receive feedback on our mock-ups and testing plans at Crit.
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
We are still struggling with making sure there are teenagers we can test with since we don't know who will come to the sites we visit.

Carolyn Mazanec - When you talked to GCFD today, did you ask them if they had any ideas about how to make sure you get your users for testing? (i.e. teens) They might have some ideas; I'd also ask your coaches! Hopefully we can figure something out for next week

What’s your sprint goal for this week?
Same.
Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We made several iterations of website mockups on paper, and we started making mockups of promotional redesign by creating flyers and templates.
What will you achieve between now and the next stand?
We can finish promotional redesign, decide how to test the fun truck and toolkit, and start designing mockups for design of the food truck.
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
We still are not sure how to test the components of the fun truck at a site. We are also looking for ideas for how to design a food truck that could be aimed towards teens. In the future, we also want to look for ways to get teens involved in the testing process.

What’s your sprint goal for this week?
Mock up 4-5 potential solutions, and start testing and receiving feedback on our designs.
Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We narrowed down our 9 solutions to 4-5 solutions that we can mock-up
1)Website
2)Tool Kit
3)Fun Truck
4)Food Truck
5)Promotional Re-Designs

We started creating a list of other ideas that GCFD can implement on their own. We also created a list of questions of what we want to learn from our testing. We had an interview with Suzy from GCFD.
What will you achieve between now and the next stand?
We will make testing plans in order to decide how we are going to mock-up and test solutions. Start Building mock-ups
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
Some of our ideas are difficult to implement (like the Food Truck) so an obstacle is coming up with ways to mock-up those ideas in reasonable ways

We're not sure how to approach testing out our mockups in the field.

Bryan Berger - I'm excited to hear about which of the solutions that the team decides to prototype!Also, have you considered volunteering at any of the programs? I think this could be helpful to get a better understanding of how the system works and the feasibility of your ideas. Do you have any plans to talk to children and teens who frequent these programs and see what they have to say rather than just the staff at the site?

Yuri Frank Maxwell Malina - Awesome progress guys- what are the ideas you are unsure how to test?

Leesha Maliakal - Hey team, congrats on making it to the halfway point, your plans look great! For testing your mockups, think about ways to do low-fi prototyping. As an example, you could draw up a bunch of screens on paper and watch as users interact and navigate through your system. Prototyping for Tiny Fingers <http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=175288> serves as a great guide on how to rapidly build testable prototypes, so I'd skim through that, too. Good luck!

Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We brainstormed around solutions to reduce teen stigma, we created an excitement v. feasibility graph to narrow down the best of our brainstormed solutions, and we created a decision matrix to compare 5-8 solutions.

Some of the solutions we considered included:
1) Website ("Loft") with Centralized Info and Networking for Canvassers
2) Centralized Guide and Promotional Box/Kit
3) CTA and Other Coupons
4) (Teen) Leadership and Sports Activities at Site
5) Promotional Stickers
6) NYC-style Signage
7) New Food trucks
8) Educational and College Activities
What will you achieve between now and the next stand?
We could act out our chosen 5-8 solutions and continue analyzing the logistics and feasibility of our solutions, and we will start preparing for our midterm review.
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
We are unsure of what our next steps should be after narrowing down and analyzing our solutions. Additionally, we still need to hear back from site coordinators and other contacts about information that we could apply to our solutions.

Emily Harburg - Very nice job at listing out the solutions here. Really interesting!

Stand for Monday, Jul 27

What’s your sprint goal for this week?
Continuing to brainstorm around different aspects of the problem and narrowing down those ideas.
Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We created 5 "How we can we"s (make sure teens are finding out about the food sites, get participants to decide to attend a food site, etc.), defined broad design goals and measures of success which helped us to pick categories and topics to brainstorm around. We also had a coach's meeting with Bari where we identified more design goals (promotional aspect, target teens, better environment, engage teens) and continued to brainstorm.
What will you achieve between now and the next stand?
Brainstorm and categorize ideas. Find intersections within brainstorming ideas. Test hypothesis that teens don't know about the sites at all vs. teens know about the sites they just are choosing not to go.
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
Contacting teens and other stakeholders, lack of blood sugar and enthusiasm throughout brainstorming. Hearing back from site coordinators that we have emailed.

What’s your sprint goal for this week?
Brainstorming ideas and continuing to narrow down our focus to one direction.
Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We organized our information from our observations on Wednesday into buckets. Then we wrote down questions we had and used those to come up with a few solution based questions that we can brainstorm off of. We also visited two more sites on Thursday and got more contacts through GCFD and No Kid Hungry.
What will you achieve between now and the next stand?
We will prepare for Crit, begin brainstorming, revise our problem statement to focus more on the direction we are going.
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
Still too many problem areas and determining which area is most important to focus on

Carolyn Mazanec - hey guys! awesome work today - i would maybe focus on nailing down your problem statement before brainstorming. With that and preparing for crit, not sure we'll have time to get into brainstorming just yet. Will definitely check in tomorrow though to see where you all are at!

Same.
Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We visited a Boys and Girls Club, where they provided a large amount of programming around the lunch; from them, we learned about what makes a successful program, including: close, personal connections between community and staff; educational activities; mentorship activites for teens; word-of-mouth promotion; and free access to facilities and safe places. We also learned about the areas of people who we may want to focus on bringing into the program: teens, and children who don't have parental involvement in the programs. We also learned more about the differences between GCFD and No Kid Hungry: GCFD provides resources, and NKH provides more funding.
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
We still need help focusing in on a specific problem that our team can make the best impact on. By continuing to focus on user journeys and re-organizing our buckets, we can continue narrowing these problems down.

Carolyn Mazanec - awesome new insights! this looks great - I'm glad you guys are making so much progress. it sounds like you guys are on your way to narrowing down your problem space, but let me know if anything comes up that you need help with!

Hi everyone! My name is Bryan and I am a senior majoring in MaDE. I'm excited to be following along with your CFD project this summer, especially because food insecurity is a topic that I have been actively trying to get more NU students to think about.

I saw a really great video the other day from Last Week Tonight with John Oliver looking at Food Waste in the US. Check it out if you have some time. Just food for thought!

Continue to narrow down specific/tangible topics and problems that we can resesarch and tackle.
Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We have narrowed down larger bucket topics to smaller categories that is organized uner problems we want to solve. This helped us learn out problem space: creating an environement that allows the user to remove themselves from stigma and enjoy their meal. We have started a journey map that that allowed us to understand that there are 2 areas that we can create a solution to produce our projected outcome. We also came up with solutions to get more information on understanding the user's journey (overcoming the language barrier) --A fill in the blank survey and a drawing survey. We are still working finding students that can come with us to translate.

Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
We went to three Lunch Bus stops, and we learned about the different ways each community dealt with aspects of the site (promotion, seating and experience, activities, and sponsors). We are also beginning to organize and group major themes and problems in each site: promotional/awareness (kickoffs, flyers, public advertisement in churches, etc), emotional/user experience (stigmas, activities, seating)..
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
We are still having trouble with the language barrier with us and the parents/children, which we need to gain insight into the user experience. Still not sure how to solve this, but we may have one contact that we can use to translate for us - more help in this area would be nice, though!

Continue organizing observations and secondary research, and contact other organizations
Are you on track to achieving your sprint goal?
Yes
What specific progress have you made toward the goal since last stand?
Went on two site visits, we then organized our observations into themes
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
It is challenging to talk to parents and kids at the sites, language and being able to form trust are barriers. Also site visits are spread out throughout the week so can't move on into next step of the process until later.

Carolyn Mazanec - hey guys! so my comment below has more info about building trust and overcoming language barriers (so check that out!) also, as for moving into the next step of the process, I think it's definitely ok to start grouping info in between user visits, and processing all of that awesome feedback. if you feel like a sitting duck between now and the next one, i would suggest looking more into secondary research sources (maybe we take a trip to the library?) and contacting other organizations outside of GCFD (so I love your sprint goal!) If you're still not sure what to do in between site visits, let me know and we can figure out some other things for you to do today!

We finished observations from user oberservations from a new site and a more established site
What obstacles are in the way of achieving your sprint goal? Who do you need to talk to or what will you do to overcome these obstacles?
In trying to interview the children and parents we realized that we might need a translator (English/Spanish).

Carolyn Mazanec - i know we talked about this already, but just to reiterate, maybe we can start thinking about other ways to conduct user research and other people to reach out to for more information. (so observations and talking to different staff members who might have an in) also, I know emily talked about building trust in her ethnography workshop monday, and that might help you guys as well. So I loved Emma's idea to bring a soccer ball/ kick around with the kids - more stuff like that will definitely help you interact more with your users! this would also be a great question to bring up during crit: how do we approach a language barrier during user research? other designers will definitely have some ideas for you guys. overall, great work!

Kelly Costello - Sounds like you learned a lot during your first field work.
There is also a list of professionals that know about the GCFD to connect with, which can provide a bit more context. It may be easier to connect with the people next week during the Kid Cafe visits.
The kids may not be the conduit to bringing more people in; the parents may be a more important user group to connect with.
How were the conversations with the canvassers? Let us know who tomorrow goes.
