Assessment Description
In this assessment, you will be writing an individual report that encourages you to be creative with business analytics, whilst also developing a response to the UX, CX and Ethical innovation case study that you have selected.
Background:
In this assessment, you will be developing a response through application of the analytics concepts covered in weeks 10 & 11.
To do so, you will need to demonstrate:
1. How Design Thinking principles were applied in the development of your proposed innovation
2. Application of UX and CX principles during the development process
3. Acknowledgement and management of legal and ethical issues in the creation of your innovation.
4. Alignment to the customer journey for your nominated personas.
5. Utilisation of analytics tools.
Assessment Instructions
Select a case study brief from either Appendix A or Appendix B (select only one of these briefs)
Apply UX and CX Design Thinking principles in delivering an analytics-based solution to this brief, taking into consideration UX, CX and ethical issues in developing this innovation.
Broad UX and CX steps are likely to include:
1. DISCOVER & DEFINE
• Problem statement
• Defining your target audience
• Creating Personas outcomes
• User journey mapping
2. DESIGN
• Lo-fi vs Hi-fi design
• Wireframes & prototypes
3. TEST + ITERATE
• How to capitalise on failure in rapid prototyping and fast loop iterations
In evaluating your proposed innovation from a UX and CX perspective,
- How feasible is the solution for implementation?
- How well does the solution meet the needs of the end-user

Appendix A
UX and CX – for car passengers
Find a way of making a passenger experience, whilst travelling in car, more enriching. This experience could be extended to being as a passenger in a driverless car.
There are no limits to what you can envision, for example:
• An app to improve the customer experience?
• A new feature to enhance customer comfort?
Success criteria include:
1. Ideation - How innovative and creative is the solution?
2. Feasibility - How feasible is the solution for implementation?
3. Customer centric - How well does the solution meet the needs of the end user (UX)?
4. Expandability - What is the potential for the idea to become a business?
From an analytics perspective, consider what can be inferred from public and proprietary third party datasets?
To develop this design, there is a need to nominate a persona.
For example, this is the persona of Francine:
- 39 years old
- Married/two children/Suburban
- Comfortable with tech
- Travels to client venues/sites regularly
- Typically has to drive or take an Uber
- Unable to continue working during travel (sometimes 60+ mins) due to lack of workspace
- Driverless vehicles (Shared Autonomous Vehicles) provide an opportunity to continue working with privacy
- Public transportation and Uber does not allow the privacy required to work as a passenger
In Francine’s journey map, consider how Francine thinks and feels at each step in the journey, thereby emphasising with Francine.
Come up with ‘How Might We…” statements to address the pain points and areas of opportunity that you’ve identified. Cluster the HMWs into themes.
In developing your approach and deliverable, consider producing a Design Thinking canvas, similar to the canvas outlined below
List any legal and ethical constraints that may impact on your innovation. This includes whether safe operation has been considered in the design?
Appendix B
UX and CX – for an amusement ride at a theme park
A leading theme park (e.g. Disneyland) is seeking to introduce a new high-tech amusement ride, primarily for 15 to 30 year olds, who are fit and who satisfy minimum height and weight requirements.
This park is has its own unique theme. Consumers are price sensitive.
Parks rely on volume and the new ride is intended to attract patrons, with the new amusement ride intended to be a destination in itself.
You will be asked to apply the steps of Design Thinking to develop this amusement ride from conception to implementation, from a UX and CX perspective. This includes:
1. EMPATHISE – develop a persona for a patron you are trying to attract to the theme park
2. DEFINE – what is the User Experience they are seeking from the amusement ride?
3. BRAINSTORM – outline different conceptions of the amusement ride.
4. PROTOTYPE – How do we translate brainstormed ideas into actionable implementation objectives?
5. TEST + ITERATE - How to capitalise on failure in rapid prototyping and fast loop iterations.
You will need to put together an experiment that will help test your ideas.
To do so, consider what type of data you will need to collect. From an analytics perspective, consider what can be inferred from public and proprietary third party datasets?
In developing your approach and deliverable, consider producing a Design Thinking canvas, similar to the canvas outlined below:
List any legal and ethical constraints that may impact on your innovation. This includes whether safe operation has been considered in the design?
