Putting the Customer First Professor Paul Jennings Experiential Engineering © 2014

Let’s talk about… • Understanding customers and users • Not about being a slave to customers’ whims • Gaining insights which will help you meet your business objectives • Purposely designing for the experiences and behaviours you hope to create for users of a product or service • We call this: Experience Led Innovation © 2014

What is Experience Led Innovation? Experience Led Innovation (ELI): Innovation that is informed by understanding how people use or experience a product or service © 2014

Put yourself in the user’s shoes … now how does your offering look? © 2014

Experience Led Innovation • All products and services create experiences and behaviours for users – either by design, or by accident • Getting it right is a competitive advantage • Designing desired behaviours aligned with business goals • Creating physical or digital experiences and journeys • Making use of sensory input and emotions Our key message to SMEs: We can help you better understand the user experience to promote and inform innovation to grow your business © 2014

Introductions Experience Led Innovation SME team Carolyn Parkinson Technology Transfer Specialist Prof Paul Jennings Professor of Experiential Engineering © 2014

Understand the user perspective What does this button do? • Stop the traffic? • Provide illusion of control? • ‘Fake affordance’ Design question: Is there anything to be gained from making something look like it works one way, while actually doing something else (or nothing at all)? © 2014

Understand the user perspective How many people would push the wrong button for this lift? © 2014

Understand the user perspective Confusing user interface Result: • frustration • wasted time • poor quality data © 2014
