I really enjoyed actually doing this full process with real people. It was fun and a great reminder to focus on the user to create empathy. Rod delivered this information in a way I had not heard before and we actually did it! This makes me excited to do design thinking in the future.
I learned to listen to the needs of service recipients and provide the resources they actually need. I loved empathy-building and how we practiced it with real interviews.
