Values are necessary presupposition of analysis, because members' accounting, based on shared values, renders their concepts & methods visible to analysts.
But how can working designers actually discover values?

Methods include:

The following case studies have been done:
  1. value-based requirements analysis for small corporate recruitment firm;
  2. many UCSD class UID projects.
  3. values in mathematical proofs (applied to Kumo theorem prover interface);
  4. values in database interfaces (applied to DB schema mapping tools);
  5. values in narrative & metaphor (applied to performances with Griot).
So value-driven design works.
