COVID T.R.A.C.K. Ideation
Last Semester, our professor taught us on how to be a technopreneur. After the lessons, she made a groupings and gave us a task which is to create/think a non-existing application/services that would be helpful to people. So each member in our group think one idea and then we will vote to pick which one is to be prioritize during the presentation.
The chosen ideation is to create a COVID T.R.A.C.K. application in order to address the problem in monitoring and tracking of covid, to track those vaccinated or unvaccinated people in your nearby area, notify you when there is a person that tested positive or have a symptom in your nearby area, and other great features. I believe that this application is very useful and timely, even though we are about to get back to normal, the possibility of being infected by the virus is still there, since we are not totally in zero cases, so we still need to be aware and careful of those who we encounter outside.
Upon talking to people (customers) or upon giving survey to them with the use of google forms in order to know if there is really a problem in the current way of tracking the covid patients, the vaccinated or unvaccinated persons, the result shows us that there is really a problem about the current way of tracking. Since 87.84% out of 183 respondents agreed that there is really a problem in the current way in detecting, monitoring, or tracking the covid patients. Therefore, this application will be helpful to us during this covid or even not just this covid time. This will be helpful also when we encounter any type of virus crisis in the future, since we do not know what is ahead of us. From that result, we agreed to pursue our idea in order to resolve the current problem.
In the process of making our ideation, of course the conflict in a group/team is always there. In our group the only conflict that I think we encountered is the TIME. Since we have our own life and we are just talking virtually, time would of each other is hard to control. Some has their different life events that need to be attended. Sometimes some just need to take a rest because of tiredness from the requirement in other subject. We still have the time management, but it is just hard to set a time that all of the members in our group was available.
So how do our group resolve this conflict? It is simply like this, one of our members will ask if we are available to meet at 8 pm (example), then when someone is not available that time, the time that was set will be adjusted until all of the members of our team will be available before we proceed in making the activity. We are always in one room/meet when doing an activity in order to finish it faster. So, that is what I think the conflict in our group.
The next part will be the pitching and will be read in the next article.
