User stories don't help users: Introducing persona stories | ACM Interactions

User stories don't help users: Introducing persona stories | ACM Interactions | UXploration | Scoop.it

User stories are one of the most popular alternatives to traditional user requirement specifications. But despite their promising name, user stories are not about—and don’t necessarily help—users at all. In most cases, user stories are written about roles that users adopt and take no account of the needs and behaviors of real users.

User Stories: a strategic design tool | Johnny Holland

User Stories: a strategic design tool | Johnny Holland | UXploration | Scoop.it

User Experience Strategy becomes an ‘in principle agreement’ on the shape of the project (what), its purpose (why), and provides potential implementation strategies (how). It takes into account all perspectives (e.g business, technical, marketing, brand) but privileges the intended user experience.

Hans's curator insight, August 13, 2013 2:19 PM

Finally the math courses included in my engineering education are going to pay for the effort :) Many digital applications are depending on large flows of data that must be visualized in one way or another, and more data leads to more advanced algorithms in order to do it. No matter how much calculus I have studied, most of the raw data circulating the web will be impossible to interpret without being tranformed into a more user friendly format. Consequently designers must accept the challenge to reduce complexity and make the enormous amount of information cosumable for human beings, so why not tell it like stories, becuase that's something we are all familiar with.

Michael Allenberg's curator insight, August 14, 2013 8:16 AM

Data interpretation is the skill to develop in the coming years... It is not simply how to read data (or Big Data) that matters, but effectively prioritizing and communicating abstractions into consumables that benefit and guide end-users.

iPad Design Lab: Storytelling in the Age of the Tablet | UXploration | Scoop.it

In the book I examine how the tablet allows us to enhance storytelling through audio, video, "pop-up moments" and, of course, narratives. The book covers everything from storytelling and navigation to advertising and economics. It was designed for the iPad and contains over two hundred illustrations, including video walkthroughs, audio introductions, photo galleries and links to useful websites.

Storytelling to Problem Solve

Storytelling to Problem Solve | UXploration | Scoop.it

Storytelling has long been a tool for user experience designers, guiding how we craft an experience. What I’m proposing is a bit different: The use of face-to-face conversation to change how we empathize with our audience. It’s a skill we all have and, properly honed, designers can leverage it to better communicate in the digital world.
