Rubber ducking is a nickname given to the process of brainstorming.. I can’t describe how may times.. I have tried giving technical explanations to nontechnical users.. And throughout that verbal process.. I always learned things I couldn’t have imagined.
The concept of ‘rubber ducking’ means.. That instead of WASTING THE TIME of your best customers.. It is more efficient to NOT waste the time of another person.. They didn’t really contribute anyways.
We are taught to describe our problems to an inanimate object.. In the hopes that we can still produce the valuable insights.. Merely by talking to an inanimate object.
I have used this thought process to help me understand many problems that SEEM insurmountable. Rubber ducking is what keeps me SANE.
NICE TO SEE THAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE PAYING THE SAME RESPECT TO THIS CONCEPT.
