Within the world of software development, design obviously takes on a multitude of meanings, from obvious applications such as database design and development of user experience solutions and user interface designs, through to the particular approach taken to project management.

At Chess Digital we are using design to do more that that. We use it in our approach to eliciting user requirements and to structuring conversation and discussion with various ‘extreme users’ involved in systems proposed use cycle. In doing so, clients feel engaged and the resulting information and insight is richer and of more value.
