What is this?
Ask interview subjects to draw a concept, graph, journey, or timeline to communicate visually.
When should I use this?
When you’re interviewing subjects, mix in drawing to provide them with an alternative way to organize or communicate their thoughts, especially those that can be represented graphically. You can also use it to break up a long conversation.
More about this...
Asking people to draw is an easy way to start a conversation or introduce a new mode of communication. It also produces an artifact that you can add to your fact base. The process is usually done as part of an interview. Simply ask the person you’re designing for to draw the steps in a process, their career or academic trajectory, a map, or a graph and follow up with probing questions.
