How do you design? by Hugh Dubberly

www.dubberly.com/articles/how-do-you-design.html

 

In this 147-page book (available for download as PDF), Hugh Dubberly collected over one-hundred descriptions of design and development processes in hopes to foster debate about design and development processes.

 

The book asks interesting questions:

+ How do we design? Why do we do it that way?

+ How do we describe what we do? Why do we talk about it that way?

+ How do we do better?

 

...with practical goals in mind:

+ reducing risk (increasing the probability of success)

+ setting expectations (reducing uncertainty and fear)

+ increasing repeatability (enabling improvement)

 

It's an interesting and inspiring read. Highly recommended.
