Test & Iterate Quickly “You can Achieve a big vision – but in small increments. It requires a commitment to iteration” Eric Ries

The User

What is (UX) User Experience? “User experience design as a discipline is concerned with all the elements that together make up that interface, including layout, visual design, text, brand, sound and interaction. It works to coordinate these elements to allow for the best possible interaction by users”. Don Norman

(UX) Key Questions Why is the product being made? Who is it being made for? What are the stakeholders goals for the project? How do the requirements fit within the wider business objectives of the organization? Who are the competitors? How is success going to be measured?

Know Thy User Users can be, ‘Experienced’, ‘Expert’, ‘Novice’ or ‘Power Users’ The more fluid and responsive the experience is the more emotionally, invested users will become Ask only for limited input from users Users are not stupid Create emotional connections Users want novelty

Know Thy User Build healthy long-term relationships with users User’s will ask why doesn't my brand / site / app know me? Build users trust incrementally and look for soft commitments along the way Reduce input forms, user fatigue Hide technology from the user

Simplicity Make it feel snappier – always go back to engineering Reduce chances for users to make mistakes Stop making people passengers and more partners of the user experience. Stop commanding users what to do Reduce everything thoughtfully

Tell a Story - User Research Contextual research Competitor Analysis In-depth interviews Visual Style Social analytics Focus Groups Online interviews Existing Users Analytics / tracking On Location Street interviews Third Party Studies Usability Review Card Sorting

Create Personas User Background: Age range, native language, physical and or cognitive limitations Experience: How familiar are your users with similar systems? Will they need to learn? Behavior: What motivates users. Do they share any behavioral traits? Desires and Concerns: What do they want to achieve, what concerns do they have?

Focus on Outcomes Not Deliverables Real people use your products and services, real people with different wants, needs, abilities, environments and a million other possible variables that need to be factored in… “Businesses cannot treat their customers as passive consumers any longer, every company is in the user experience business” “If you take the time to understand how people think, then design solutions around their true needs and behavior – your design will be far more likely to perform better with them.” http://alistapart.com/column/explaining-water-to-fish

Remember “Users will never forget how you made them feel” Maya Angelou
