— Problem Statement
When working on the Nest Hero project, from problem to research and demonstration, I learned how to integrate a large amount of data into practical and real-time plan content. The most significant gains from user interviews and user testing are how to raise questions about the overall product. Each user has different ideas and can iterate the product step by step to a complete user experience. The project management of a one-person team is the most challenging thing in implementing the project. The focus of this project learning is how to effectively arrange which priorities need to be implemented and record every task performed in the process. Through renting behavior, we can understand the critical points of each user in understanding the renting source and what facts are often overlooked.
