Tech Mahindra follows the User-Centred Design methodology, which uncovers the user's emotions and conceptual model, uses that to inform the structure and detailed design to the end-customer, and finally validates with actual users to ensure that it meets their growing needs and expectations.
The process consists of following phases -
- Phase 1 - UX Strategy and User Need Analysis
- Phase 2 – UX Design
- Phase 3 – Design Evaluation
- Phase 4 – UI Development and Testing
UX Strategy and User Need Analysis:
- Definition of research scope: Understand the research requirements and suggest appropriate research tools.
- Research design: Designing the right research techniques for the study and mapping the target group, sample sizing and using appropriate statistical tools for data analysis.
- Qualitative and Quantitative Research: Conduct surveys, interviews and focus group to identify the existing gaps from targeted end user groups and study their needs.

- High-level site flow illustrating the concept and scope of the site framework.
- Interactive wireframe design of the high-level structure with an initial set of primary and some secondary screens demonstrating the relationship between the structure and its content.
- Visual Themes and Mockup Design.
In this phase, we go back to the end-customers/ users of the product/services and test the new concept, eliciting from them their feelings around it, whether it is something they would be persuaded to use and if the design is adequate to achieve the business goals.
