Hippocratic Oath is a qualitative method that aims to help product managers shape the ethical impact of their product. This method encourages designers to reflect on their vow to protect the interest of users while developing a product.
Materials: Post-it notes, pens, product description
Participants: Team (2-5 Participants)
Steps (from the Design Ethically website):
- First, come up with 3-5 core values (i.e. autonomy, safety, transparency, etc.).
- Next, come up with 3-5 entities (i.e. users, society, environment, etc.).
- Finally, create combinations between the various core values and entities that you have, and pair each combination with 2-3 action statements.
