Inspired by Connected's playbook
, I created cards on Miro. Each card explained various tasks or rituals we can use to finish a success project. With the student, we moved around the cards and created our strategy together.
I found this to be a great tool because it showed the big picture to the student. It kept them accountable and they were able to be proactive in finishing their project. They always knew what step was coming up next.
This Playbook approach also revealed which UX practices our student is comfortable with vs. which ones they aren't. It highlighted the areas where I'll have to guide them a bit more and which ones I know they can do successfully.
