Abstract:The goal of this thesis is to describe the designing and prototyping process of a visualisation made to give feedback on the behaviour and collaboration of team members in a brainstorm session, with the use of data collected from the Sociometric Badges. The visualisation should be easy to use and user-friendly. A background research and a state of the art research are done. Current visualisations make use of screens to visualize the data, these screens can be very obtrusive. All the other visualisations found also show data about the amount of speaking and the interaction. There are no current visualisations for brainstorming. Concept design sketches are drawn and a user test is done to find out what the users would prefer. Users preferred adding different colors to show a different value. The visualisation will consist out of a bar per user that shows the amount of speaking and interruptions per user over time. Another user test is done to see how the users react to the movement of the visualisation. Users overall react positively to the visualisation and its movements. Users stated that the change in colour was not clear enough. Small improvements are done and a final prototype is made. With these final improvements the design goal has been accomplished.
