Task Breakdown Method

Updated: Jul 24, 2023

In addition to the 4 methods that served as the base for the Bicycle User Experience concept, this blog will be translating more human centered design methods to the context of street design for everyday biking. These blog posts are initial explorations.

The tenth new method we'll explore is Task Breakdown.

What: Documentation of all tasks that need to be completed to get from Point A to Point B on a bicycle.

Why: Break down journey into individual steps to see where design can intervene and streamline the experience.

End Goal: A minimal amount of tasks are required to get from Point A to Point B on a bicycle; everyday people choose to use the bike because of its ease and simplicity.

(Translated to the context of street design for everyday biking from traditional design method: Task Analysis.)

Note: This initial translation has been added as a full method with additional detail to the BUX Methods Toolkit. You can access it and the other methods in the toolkit here.
