Die „8 hats of data visualisation design“

Andy Kirk schreibt in seinem Blog von den „8 hats of data visualisation design“ und visualisiert sein Konzept entsprechend:

FullList

Quelle: Andy Kirk

Ein interessanter Ansatz, um ihn einmal zu durchdenken.

  1. Der Initiator sucht eine Lösung für ein bestimmtes Problem und gibt die Rahmenbedingungen vor
  2. Der Data Scientist stellt die Daten bereit
  3. Der Journalist ist der Storyteller im Team
  4. Der Computer Scientist ist der Umsetzer im Tool
  5. Der Designer kümmert sich um die Harmony zwischen Form und Function
  6. Der Cognitive Scientist ist für die konzeptionelle Umsetzung verantwortlich
  7. Der Communicator ist Vermittler und Präsentator der Idee und Umsetzung
  8. der Project Manager hält das Projekt zusammen

Nun wird ja nicht jedes Design Projekt mit acht Personen und den entsprechenden Positionen besetzt. Das ist ganz normal und sollte nicht zu Problemen führen. Natürlich darf eine Person auch mehrere Positionen einnehmen.

Die Idee von Andy Kirk ist insofern aber sehr interessant, da man alle diese Positionen innerhalb eines Projektes beachten sollte und sich öfter fragen sollte, was die Person in der jeweiligen Position wohl tun würde.
