Restaurant Routine

Module: Orientation | Level: Easy | Estimated Time: 1 hour
Skills: Creative Thinking, Design Thinking


How can you improve the experience of eating out at a restaurant? In this creative thinking exercise, you’ll identify common pain points (such as long wait times, difficulty flagging down the check, complications of splitting the bill) and brainstorm solutions.

Start by empathizing with the diner, imagining their goals, and considering their experiences with...

  • Making reservations
  • Waiting for a table
  • Ordering / receiving food and drinks
  • Requesting / paying the bill
  • Leaving the restaurant

Your design solutions can be digital (e.g., new digital reservation system) as well as non-digital (e.g., a better way for servers to drop off the check).


Present your ideas for how to improve any part of the restaurant experience in any visual format (e.g., sketches, infographic, slides).
