Monthly Method Spotlight: Personal Inventory


When/why: Personal inventory is a useful method for gleaning people’s activities, perceptions and values as well as any patterns that may occur among your sample group.

How: Document the things that people identify as important to them. This is a good way to catalog evidence of lifestyles.

Tips: This method can be combined with other methods to simplify the process. For example, include personal inventory in the Day in the Life activity or the Shadowing activity.

Interested in using/applying these methods in your work? Contact us for more info.
