Sample text

After identifying the five types of Bon Vivant, Familizer, Shy Guy, Snoopy and Social Animal as our core reference types due to their low to middle technical affinity and their middle to high social activity, we proceeded by creating ‘‘personas’’ with real backstories for every type. This was needed to help all partners in the project to keep in view the future customers and their wishes and needs during the whole design process. Finally, all this was condensed into three in-depth users’ stories thus rendering the end users’ needs, environments and intercultural differences as visible and understandable as possible.

Evaluation: How We Tested and Optimized Elisa details the results of the validation and how the system fulfilled the needs and desires of the elderly. Finally, more business-related aspects are explained in Business: How We Worked to Get Elisa into the Market and Share the Benefits. 38 R. Barberà-Guillem et al. Table 1 shows the type of tests applied to the different prototypes during the development of the project. Prototype 0, was just the tablet, prototype I a mock-up, prototype II a functional version, and prototype III a completely functional version ready to be used in a real home environment.

But we were ready for the second call topic with the ambition not to fail again and to hand in a decent proposal and therefore we wanted to keep the reigns in Innovationsmanufaktur’s hands this time. When the topic ‘‘ICT based solutions for advancement of social interaction of elderly people’’ was announced we knew that a Holistic Innovation approach combined with early user involvement could make a difference if we could succeed in finding a strong idea and the right partners. Experience had already shown us that the ‘‘not invented here’’ problem was not to be neglected.
