Please excuse me while I divert from my reflections on unsuccessful forums. Part 2 will be posted next week.
I have been struggling with an idea at work and could use a fresh perspective. Any ideas would be much appreciated!
To keep things simple, let’s pretend that I’m running a modelling agency. I want to make a decision aid to help my clients choose the best models for their jobs. In my experience as an agent, I know that most clients consider one of two things when choosing a model: hair colour or modelling style.
My modelling agency specializes in natural beauty, so each model has their natural hair colour and this will not change. I have models who are blonde, red headed, and brunette.
There are several different styles of modelling (as anyone who has watched America’s Next Top Model will know). At my agency, we have models that specialize in Fashion, Editorial, and Glamour. Some of my models are very talented and can do two or three styles, while others are specialized in just one style.
I have 10 models with the following attributes:
|Ashley||Brown||Fashion, Editorial, Glamour|
|Jerry||Red||Fashion, Editorial, Glamour|
|Regan||Blonde||Fashion, Editorial, Glamour|
My clients are busy people who need a simple and easy-to-use way to pick out potential models based on their need for a model with a particular hair colour or modelling style. I also know that my clients’ needs can change fairly quickly, so I want to give them the option to see all my models in one place.
Given all the requirements of my decision aid, I’m struggling to find the right way to present the information to my clients so it meets their needs and is easy enough for them to use on their own.
Do you have thoughts on how I can do this? Leave a comment!
