The Three lenses of innovation, CX & UX

The Three lenses of innovation, CX & UX | RDV Weekly | Scoop.it

What I’m communicating here are the three lenses through we we can see in order to create a new product, service or experience and bring it to market (innovation). I was trying to better understand the difference between the way that user-centered designers or UXers study people and how Marketers study people. There are clear differences but it goes well beyond just the quant/qual gap and so I tried to articulate those here, based not only on my own experience but also on a study I conducted in 2009 about how people understand innovation.

RDV Weekly's insight:

CX and UX are cousins: close but not similar

UX 101: What Is User Experience? [infographic]

UX 101: What Is User Experience? [infographic] | RDV Weekly | Scoop.it

When it comes to design, user experience is one of the key things.

 

According to this infographic, 68% of users leave because of poorly designed websites and 62% of customers base future purchases on past experiences. These stats alone are clear enough that UX (User Experience) isn’t something that can be taken lightly. The life and blood of your business might very well depend on this factor alone.

 

Have a look at this infographic to learn more about what User Experience is all about.

A handy infographic for use when my clients ask 'what do you mean by UX?'
Ennio Martignago's curator insight, August 2, 2013 7:42 AM

Chissà quanti IT manager considerano che l'impatto delle piattaforme in azienda dipende dal fatto che il "68% degli utenti abbandona a causa della scarsa qualità nel design della UI mentre il 62% di essi basa le proprie scelte sulle esperienze passate"? Di certo una valutazione di questo genere influisce sulla fiducia dei clienti interni verso i propri IT manager. Non siamo più negli anni '80 o '90 quando bastava buttare lì qualche terminologia tecnica per zittire tutti. Oggi vi è una conoscenza basata sul confronto di altre proposte, su quelle adottate a casa propria e su pacchetti tutto compreso testabili facilmente dall'utilizzatore finale.

The First Design Hardly Ever Wins. The Iterative Approach to UX Design

The First Design Hardly Ever Wins. The Iterative Approach to UX Design | RDV Weekly | Scoop.it

Welcome to the fourth part of our UXPin and DesignModo course on wireframing and creating design documentation. This course is meant to be an introduction to User Experience Design documenting techniques for new and aspiring designers, product managers and developers; and a solid refreshment of knowledge for experienced specialists.


In the first part you learnt what the difference between common design deliverables is: wireframes, mockups and prototypes. In the second part you had the chance to read my thoughts on the importance of aesthetics and context in design documentation, as well as to learn how to properly wireframe the basic layout of a website. The third part was dedicated to collaboration in the UX Design process.


This part of the course is really special. We will discuss the iterative approach to User Experience Design – a problem which is absolutely vital to wireframing and creating design documentation efficiently. Befriending iterations helped my design career and hopefully it will help yours as well.

 

Sounds interesting? Read on.

15 web sites with excellent UX

15 web sites with excellent UX | RDV Weekly | Scoop.it

UX (user experience) for web design is a combination of such skills as user interface design and interaction design. It’s about making things that make sense. Some of our favorite developments in UX include the ability for more information to appear as you scroll down a page, rather than having to click the next or “load more” buttons. Another is the ability to hit left and right navigation keys on your keyboard rather than having to click through pagination. This is effective because it makes web browsing easier and more intuitive.

 

Today we’ve found 15 great sites that really understand and take the time out to create a wonderful user experience. They’ve used great design, development, navigation and much more to create sites with almost perfect UX. Let’s jump right in.
