Affinity Diagram Steps
[MUSIC] 0:00 Hi, my name is Megan and I'm a teacher here at Treehouse. 0:09 One of the most popular ways to organize responses from our users, 0:13 our ideas and really all the information and data we have so 0:17 far is a process called affinity diagramming. 0:21 Affinity diagramming is where you read through your data, 0:26 and organize them into groups as you see patterns. 0:29 After you've organized everything, then you create a label for each group. 0:32 This process can be done on your own, but it is a great way to get opinions 0:37 from teammates on how they view the data, compared to your own view. 0:42 The first thing you want to do when starting your affinity diagram is 0:48 to write or type each data point onto its own sticky note. 0:52 Next, start to organize the sticky notes into groups, 0:57 being careful not to decide on the groups first. 0:59 You'll want to stay away from just placing items into groups and 1:03 instead play around with the sticky notes. 1:06 Once a note has been placed into a group you may find it fits better into 1:09 a different group later on. 1:13 Keep organizing and moving sticky notes around until you feel comfortable with 1:15 the groups you have created. 1:19 Now that all the sticky notes have been organized, 1:23 create a label for each group that summarizes what each group is about. 1:25 Once your groups are labeled, step back and review your diagram. 1:30 What did you learn? 1:34 Are there some pain points that came up from your activity? 1:36 Maybe some areas for improvement. 1:39 You now have a diagram that shows you common themes, issues and 1:42 user needs all in one place. 1:45 In the next video, I will walk you through an example affinity diagram 1:49 to show you how this process works. 1:53
