The MVIFI Design Thinking Field Guide



In 2014, a team of MVIFI designers embarked a design challenge to scale and evolve the DEEPdt methodology into a new toolset.

Though DEEPdt has numerous advantages, after years of using the model we kept coming up against repeated obstacles. One of our biggest obstacles was the rigidity associated with following DEEP through each letter. We discovered that moving through various stages and starting in different areas could lend itself to incredible results. As a way to experiment with this idea, we’ve removed the DEEP framework from the tools in the Field Guide.

The insights and notes on possible revisions came to a head, and in 2018 The MVIFI design team began to explore a new framework we are calling The Compass Model. The final pages of the Field Guide go into greater detail to explain the 4 main compass elements: Discover, Define, Design, Deploy.

Your feedback is extremely valuable to us and we want to know how you are using the new tools reach out via email, facebook, or twitter!
