The Experimentation Process
This section outlines a summary of the experimentation process which was presented and adapted as a capacity building initiative in 2018, with faculty from Mobility Lab, Wonderlab and XYX Lab of Monash University.
The experimentation approach we explored is not a methodology. Intentionally, it doesn’t have a tightly defined process or set of methods. Instead, it is rooted in a practice which is made up of a wide variety of tools, techniques, methods and are woven together as and when they are needed - much like cooking.
The important thing to note about a practice (like cooking), is that to get better at it, you need to practice.
So whilst I set out the process we explored in this field guide, it must be seen as an expression of this practice, rather than the way it must be done.
Please feel free to adapt, augment, change the pace, the order, and make it your own.
The format of the capacity building initiative for each group was:
- 1.Half day workshop
- 2.2x 3 hour coaching sessions
