"If you have a great idea, don't tell anyone...
  tell everyone!"

    - Muriel Cooper, MIT Media Lab Co-Founder / AIGA Medalist


And then...
  • Ideate
  • Prototype
  • Release and revise

 

Ideate

It doesn't matter if its a scribble on the back of a napkin or a note jotted down on the board during a brainstorming session... all great ideas need to start somewhere and mature, irregardless if you are architecting a piece of software, championing a industry standard, or implementing a process that will benefit your company's long term success.

Prototype

Now show others. Let them see both the "forest", as well as the "trees". Let them see your idea from 30k feet, as well as from the ground level.

Show them how it works. How it can aid them in accomplishing their task. How it can create an experience that they can come to rely upon.

 

Release

It doesn't have to be perfect the first time. Just get it out there. Once live, listen to what your users are saying. Does your creation hinder or aid them in accomplishing their task at hand?

It is only once we understand how a user interacts with a system that we can then begin to revise it to better meet their needs.
