the latest issue of the International Journal of Design
(http://www.ijdesign.org/) has this interesting article that
introduces a human-centered design approach -- the Three-in-One User
Study -- which applies a set of methods to speed up and focus on the
design process. With a Three-in-One, designers' face-to-face contacts
with users are concentrated into one collaborative designer-user
session where preproduced self-documentation material and early design
models enable focused collaborative exploration.

Three-in-One combines three different complementary points of view to
design: users' subjective interpretations, designers' focused
observations, and design interventions with models. Three-in-One was
applied in a kick-bike design case, and it led to improvements to the
initial concept, as well as justified decisions for further design
development.
