When a team directly interacts with their users they can more readily align on user pain points and needs.


1.1 Deepen empathy through intentional practice
Developing skills requires practice. It is each team member’s job to develop empathy for the user and this requires direct exposure or observation. Ensure adequate user recruiting budgets, physical space for testing, and funding for excursions to observe your users in the context of your offering.

 

 Keep in mind that empathy is one piece of the puzzle—you can’t conduct research on empathy alone.

Human-Centered Design: Why Empathy Isn’t Everything

Human-Centered Design: Why Empathy Isn’t Everything | User Interface and Learning Design | Scoop.it
As a designer I’ve spent the last decade translating human needs and desires into experiences that fulfill them — and I’m convinced: the human-centered design process demands more than just empathy with others; it requires a deep understanding of our own selves.

Empathic Design: The Most Difficult Simple Approach to Successful Design

Empathic Design: The Most Difficult Simple Approach to Successful Design | User Interface and Learning Design | Scoop.it
In his book “Change by Design,” Tim Brown describes empathy as “the mental habit that moves us beyond thinking of people as laboratory rats or standard deviations.”

Unlike the marketing research that deals with numbers and facts, empathic design tries to meet users’ needs and even thinks in terms of what they may need to make their life much easier. Empathic design aims to build an emotional relationship between the end consumer and the product by achieving a better understanding of the user experience and users’ needs at an early stage of new product development (NPD).

While other marketing methods put a high priority on the product and its sales, empathic design puts the end user and building that emotional connection between the consumer and the product first. Putting the consumer first can be considered a strong marketing objective of empathic design.

A User-Centred Approach to Mobile Design and a 5 Stage Process for You to Use

The mobile web is here to stay. However, it’s important to remember that having a mobile website isn’t the key to success – it’s providing the right approach to the mobile user experience that brings success. Taking a user-centred approach to mobile (and other) design can help you keep in mind the outcomes that you intend rather than wasting time on unrewarding designs.The mobile web is a description intended to distinguish accessing the internet on a tablet or a smartphone as opposed to

Participatory design - Wikipedia

Participatory design - Wikipedia

In participatory design, participants (putative, potential or future) are invited to cooperate with designers, researchers and developers during an innovation process. Potentially, they participate during several stages of an innovation process: they participate during the initial exploration and problem definition both to help define the problem and to focus ideas for solution, and during development, they help evaluate proposed solutions.

Control principles of complex systems

Control principles of complex systems | User Interface and Learning Design | Scoop.it

A reflection of our ultimate understanding of a complex system is our ability to control its behavior. Typically, control has multiple prerequisites: it requires an accurate map of the network that governs the interactions between the system’s components, a quantitative description of the dynamical laws that govern the temporal behavior of each component, and an ability to influence the state and temporal behavior of a selected subset of the components. With deep roots in dynamical systems and control theory, notions of control and controllability have taken a new life recently in the study of complex networks, inspiring several fundamental questions: What are the control principles of complex systems? How do networks organize themselves to balance control with functionality? To address these questions here recent advances on the controllability and the control of complex networks are reviewed, exploring the intricate interplay between the network topology and dynamical laws. The pertinent mathematical results are matched with empirical findings and applications. Uncovering the control principles of complex systems can help us explore and ultimately understand the fundamental laws that govern their behavior.

Using Practical Empathy to Improve Product Design and Collaboration 

Using Practical Empathy to Improve Product Design and Collaboration  | User Interface and Learning Design | Scoop.it

We talk with author Indi Young about using practical empathy to make better decisions, improve product design strategies, and collaborate more successfully.

 

What can Udacity students do to increase their ability to practice practical empathy?

 

Every chance you get—every day—practice listening. Practice noticing what your reactions are to what people are saying, and giving them a chance to actually describe their perspective.

 

Practice reflecting their perspective so you can encourage them to go deeper. When talking to someone about something that maybe you don’t really believe in, completely suspend that disbelief and launch into the other person’s world. Reflect what they are saying so they feel confident saying back to you the deeper and deeper things…that’s practice.

From Empathy to Innovation: Design Thinking for Nonprofits (with images, tweets)

There are five stages in the design thinking process:
 
First, empathize. This stage begins with a conversation with stakeholders and constituents impacted by the problem. Design think facilitators should begin with a conversation with constituents, listening to them and digging deep to gain understanding of their experience.
 
The goal is to connect with the feelings and motivations of the people experiencing this problem before attempting to solve it.

What Is User Experience Design? Overview, Tools And Resources | Smashing UX Design | User Interface and Learning Design | Scoop.it
The good, the bad, the ugly. A great overview on UX!

Websites and Web applications have become progressively more complex as our industry's technologies and methodologies advance. What used to be a one-way static medium has evolved into a very rich and interactive experience.

NOT THE SAME THING AS USABILITY
User experience and usability have become synonymous, but these two fields are clearly distinct. UX addresses how a user feels when using a system, while usability is about the user-friendliness and efficiency of the interface.

This guide aims to familiarize you with the professional discipline of UX design in the context of Web-based systems such as websites and applications.

- what is UX?
- why is UX important
- UX design is not one size fits all
- criticisms of UX as a profession
- tasks and techniques of a UX designer
- tools of the trade
- websites about UX

... And if that doesn't clear it up for you, there's further reading links at the end.

Usability: A part of the User Experience

This subject may seem incredibly “big” for a single article, but it’s about the specific nature of usability that we often overlook or confuse. With this appreciation, you’ll be able to design more effectively, and your website’s usership will be able to grow, too. Usability replaced the outmoded label “user friendly” in the early 1990s. “Usability” has had trouble finding the definition we use now. Different approaches to what made a product “usable” splintered between looking at it with th
