Alternative applications & perspectives “If I’d asked my customers what they wanted, they’d have said a faster horse.” Henry Ford?© 2013

Innovation Pitfalls • Moving out of current thinking or paradigm • Little or no knowledge of how to develop a new product or service • An unidentified ‘funding gap’ for the on-going development and validation of new product or service • The need for an effective development process supported by resources and planned implementation© 2013

Putting the Customer First Carolyn Parkinson Technology Transfer Specialist Experience Led Innovation© 2013

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© 2013

What is Experience Led Innovation? Experience Led Innovation (ELI): Innovation that is informed by understanding how people use or experience a product or service© 2013

Put yourself in the user’s shoes … now how does your offering look?© 2013

Experience Led Innovation • All products and services create experiences and behaviours for users • These may be purposeful, or accidental • Getting it right is a competitive advantage Our key message to SMEs: We can help you better understand the user experience to promote and inform innovation to grow your business© 2013

Understand the user perspective What does this button do? • Close the door? • 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)?© 2013

Understand the user perspective My user experience:© 2013

Understand the user perspective How many people would push the wrong button for this lift?© 2013

Understand the user perspective© 2013

Understand the user perspective Confusing user interface Result: • frustration • wasted time • poor quality data© 2013

Understand the user perspective© 2013

Experience Led Innovation • A deliberate focus on the user experience can unlock powerful insights • An enormous amount of research is out there • This can be used by businesses to create competitive advantage • Designing desired behaviours aligned with business goals • Creating physical or digital experiences and journeys • Making use of emotions© 2013

Research base Professor Paul Jennings Professor of Experiential Engineering Dr Rebecca Cain Associate Professor of Experience Led Innovation Paul and Rebecca are supported by over 20 researchers working in this area.© 2013

Could my business benefit from an Experience Led Innovation approach? 1. How easily can customers access your product or service? 2. Is your product being used in the way you intended? 3. Are you struggling to get your products accepted in the marketplace, and don’t know why? 4. Does the experience of your service match your brand values? 5. Could your products be designed to work better?© 2013

Features of Experience Led Innovation Cross discipline: engineering, design, psychology, ergonomics, architecture, marketing, strategy, and more Many names: User focussed design, customer satisfaction, design feedback loop, human factors engineering, usability, design for emotion, ergonomics Applicability: can add value to innovation at any stage of Sales and profit the development life cycle© 2013 Development & Introduction Growth Maturity Decline
