For a little period now at school, we started a project that we were going to spend a lot of time on. The project was to come up with good ideas and solutions to how shopping malls were going to survive and still be used a lot by people. What is meant by «survive» is that many shopping malls, especially in the U.S have been abandoned the past few years? This happens because a lot of people do not go shopping physically anymore, but goes shopping online. The shopping mall we were going to help was Sandvika Storsenter.
We decided to work together as a team from the start of the project. There were different tasks for us to do and come up with a solution to. First, all of us brainstormed on how to make people want to go shopping. We decided to write it down in a document that everyone could edit and cooperate in at the same time. It is called google docs, which is basically a microsoft word, but online. We started writing down our ideas and eventually, we had 3000 words in our document. But since it was supposed to be like that the text would get to the point immediately and no bullshit and own unnecessary words. After some more hard work, we managed to make a great text that included all of our ideas. We reworded everything so that the text became nice and smooth, and answered all of the tasks in a good way. When we finished the text we decided to divide our group in half. The business people were going to find new solutions and ideas, while the IT guys were working on a complex adobe Xd project (which is a designer program). We made our prototype model first. The main goal for the model was to come with suggestions on how to make the Sandvika Storsenter website better. This was because we saw some potential to make the website better, and we saw that many of the competitor shopping malls had better and smoother websites. We spent a lot of time on that project, and in the end, it paid off. It became a great model of how the website could look to make it smoother.
At the end of the project, we are going to be practicing how to in the best way possible present this for the Sandvika Storsenter. We all agree on what parts of the project each one of us is going to present, so we are ready for when the time comes.
