People are at the center of Hatfield’s projects, whether we are implementing a data management or remote sensing project. Our core value is to bring people and science together to ensure a sustainable, cost-effective solution is implemented.
In Hatfield’s human centered design approach, four phases are followed:
- Problem formulation: end user problems are broadly defined and researched.
- Synthesis: in this phase, technical, process and business options are discussed and synthesized. Assumptions are confirmed and validated.
- Prototyping: in this phase multiple prototypes are designed and field-tested. Rapid iterative prototyping ensures customized solutions that enable system sustainability for the end-user.
- Delivery: in this phase, the solution is realized and launched.
Hatfield applies human centered design approaches to ensure that the solution connects with the people being impacted, to transform information into actionable solutions, and to increase the speed and effectiveness of the solution.
Hatfield’s core values include working collaboratively with our clients and project stakeholders to ensure that cost-effective solutions can be found and implemented. Hatfield applies human centered design techniques to ensure that our systems and solutions match the needs of all stakeholders. Taking a user centered approach to problem solving ensures that a sustainable solution is developed for environmental and community development challenges.
