Pattern Recognition tool – Mindlab Denmark

You've collected a lot of data possibly from interviews, and now you need to structure your knowledge and identify patterns that cover key themes so your data can be communicated clearly. The method is valuable because it is based on, and maintains, what has been observed in the real world. This method works from the bottom-up and is based on the users’ statements and own observations, possibly from interviews, to subsequently structure the statements and find patterns in the data. The patterns should identify themes that ideas can be generated from. Mindlab is an inter-ministry government innovation lab that invents, develops and experiments with new ways to find and define problems as well as new approaches to solving them in a relevant and effective manner.
