This is the fourth course in a series that describes a set of techniques you can use to make your development process more user centered. In this installment, I'll show you how to generate multiple creative ideas for fixing the user pain points you uncovered in earlier stages of the process.

Ideation is a technique that lets you explore lots of different design ideas in a very short space of time, drawing on the diverse ideas that each member of the team can bring to the table.
