Step-by-step guide.

Step 1: print this PDF on an A3

Download this PDF and print it on an A3. You can also draw it out on a sheet of paper if you can’t print.

Step 2: write down take-aways

Most empathy sessions are conducted in pairs. If this is the case, meet with the partner you went interviewing with. Grab some post-it notes and sharpies. The note taker should re-tell the stories and observations captured during the empathy session while writing down all interesting observations, stories, and quotes.

Step 3: craft real need statements

Craft and re-frame the stories and observations documented into real need statements.

Step 4: share the stories

Once you have the fragment cards down for every empathy session conducted, the next step is to make this knowledge collective. You can share the user stories and observations captured via our linear unpacking tool.
