culturalization and communicating a viable vision

description

Design is selfless. When you design solutions for people, you need to take the time to think outside of yourself and your business and root yourself in the needs of others. This cultural perspective is essential in any viable big-picture strategy. Culturalization is also critical when developing a realistic roadmap. Learn how storytelling, vision work, and culturalization weave together and contribute to a viable product and service experience for your patrons.

strategyUsing our understanding of what people do, think, and feel

to provide ways to help them do, think, and feel in ways that result in an increase of joy.

THINK BIG

roadmapStarting with viable well-defined steps, and continuing in an

upward trend with even more viable well-defined steps.

BE REALISTIC

Page 45: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

visionWe consistently help patrons in viable ways to receive an increase of joy in what they do, think, and feel. Patrons

return because of the increase of joy they feel in their lives.

THINK BIG, BUT BE REALISTIC

Page 46: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

strategy + roadmap = VISION

then use stories to communicate your vision

Page 47: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

Formulate a HypothesisDECIDE WHAT TO MEASURE

EXPERIMENTBAIL or CONTINUEcommunicate the experience!

Page 48: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

keyword: “viable”

Something is viable when it’s not only perceived to be, but actually is achievable,

meaningful, and productive.

Page 49: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

If your solution only worksfor a certain market

make that clear explain why you targeted that market

Page 50: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

don’t pretendto make a one-size fits all solution

your story must

BE REALISTIC

Page 51: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

Be ready to explain:1) why you targeted that market

2) how and when other markets will be targeted3) what factors drive your strategy

We call that a “roadmap”

Page 52: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

Don’t “boil the ocean”It’s NOT about doing and being

EVERYTHING for EVERYONE right now!

Page 53: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision

CULTURALIZATION

Page 59: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

typical strategy to addresscultural needs...

LET’S TRANSLATE IT!(note: that only scratches the surface)

Page 60: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

L10NLocalization involves content translation/interpretation,

and also addresses specific differences between cultures at a feature level.

The focus is on the products.

Page 61: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 
Page 62: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

Localization themeAre your products localized?

We must support patrons who speak or read languages other than our own, as well as patrons with disabilities or

environmental limitations.

Page 63: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

OK, BUT...what about differing functional needs ?

Page 64: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

I18NInternationalization is the effort to engineer a system so

that it can support localized products by analyzing what the high-level feature differences are between cultures.

The focus is on the system.

Page 65: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 
Page 66: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

Internationalization themeIs your system internationalized?

We must be built to be flexible enough to accommodate the varying functional needs, limitations, and situations of

our patrons.

Page 67: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

THAT’S ALL GREAT, BUT...the message needs to be consistent,

despite the varying needs of the patrons!

Page 68: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

G11NGlobalization is the effort to consistently convey a given set of principles, core methods, and messaging so as to clearly communicate and protect the name, brand, and

mission of the organization.

The focus is on the “design language”.

Page 69: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 
Page 70: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

Globalization themeIs your brand & message globalized?

We must consistently enable the message to be seen through the identity we project, the content we provide, and

the functions we enable in the lives of our patrons.

Page 71: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

now that we’ve taken care of

our needs,let’s focus on the

PATRON

Page 72: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

so, we have:

L10N,I18N,

and G11N

Page 73: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

introducing

C13N

Page 74: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

(culturalization)C13N?

Page 75: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

focus on cultureCulturalization means that the creation of products and

services starts from the context of a specific “culture”, and doesn’t conflict with the efforts of globalization.

Page 76: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

do...identify what cultures to target first with data

design appropriate features and contentstay true to brand and message

bring it under one roof

Page 77: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

when envisioning the end user,

THINK BIGGER( than yourself )

Page 78: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

culturalization is:To expose or subject to the influence of culture.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/culturalization

or in other words,

trying to understand!

Page 79: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

what is culture?The customs, arts, social institutions, and achievements

of

a particular nation, people, or other social group.

Page 80: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

culture can be based on:geography (e.g. Asia)

ethnicity (e.g. Scandinavians in North Seattle)like-mindedness (e.g. LDS members)

a common set of goals or tasks (e.g. “Indexers”)

Page 81: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

to be “cultured” means:Having a refined understanding or appreciation of other cultures. Having or showing good education, tastes, and

manners. It is grown or made under controlled conditions.

Page 82: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

avoid stereotypes, labels,and generalizations.THEY ARE DIVISIVE

Page 83: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

stereotypes ≠ understandingA stereotype is a widely held but fixed and oversimplified

image or idea of a particular type of person or thing.

Page 84: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

to culture (verb) is to cultivateto become “cultured” spend time in an environment

that is not your own. examples:

church missions – service missions – charity work

true design is selflessto design well, engage in selfless service

summary

Page 87: Culturalization (c13n), and Communicating a Viable Vision 

think big with your strategybe realistic with your roadmap

use stories to communicate visionseek for unity in purpose and process

try harder to understand and keep tryingbecome cultured, leave your comfort zoneexperiment to build a corpus of experience

be transparent, be open, and put people firstprepare internally to accommodate externallyalways assume that you’re missing something

stories are about people, not systems or products
