Spark Blue Innovation Portal
Overview: Created a website that would let BCBS employees be able to share innovative ideas.
Product: Design a website that cultivated innovation within BCBS.
Research: Discovered what all was needed for the site and spoke to other vendors on their pricing for the site.
Design: Used my knowledge of HTML and CSS to demonstrate what an innovation portal might look like.
Created a diagram of how an innovative idea would be executed.
Redesigned Training Program
Overview: Collaborated with my manager, Shawn Hartman, to redesign the IT Training program. The training program at BlueKC had very little involvement or supervision. Thus, the main goal was to create something that would peak employee interest and collect training data.
Product: Created an internal SharePoint site for employees. This site introduced the redesigned IT Training Program and gave employees access to training tools.
Research: Reviewed BlueKC’s current training program and the tools employees had access to. Evaluated the overall training program and tools. Produced a PowerPoint Presentation of evaluation
Design– Created basic wireframes for what a Training site could look like. First wireframe was a more employee specific portal, while the second wireframe was a more general site for BCBS employees.
Next, I created a prototype for both wireframes.
Link to prototype: General Training Site
Testing: Presented presentation and prototype to Chief Technology Officer at BCBS. This gained employee feedback. After, I also tested on random employees within BCBS. Notes below.
