When BART service was stopped due to two strikes in 2013 I organized a series of meetups to make visualizations that could help us understand the conflict. A couple of the visualizations developed by participants were used in news articles.
I've found I am most effective early in the product-development process, especially in the prototyping phase. The diagram shows the progression of an idea to Minimum Viable Product as I see it. Often times the first question to follow an interesting idea is "Could this work?", and my favorite thing to do is figuring out if it could. After figuring out that it does indeed work, the hard but neccessary part for me is developing the functional prototype into some sort of minimum viable state that can be consumed by other stake-holders in the project. There is of course still a lot that needs to happen before a product can ship, but ideally I'm prototyping the next idea.
