So you have a killer idea and you are ready to sell through your UX vision. You’ve got various internal and external stakeholders that you need to get on board. They have varying levels of technical savvy and involvement. But in a world of cross-channel experiences with an ever-growing number of touchpoints, communicating a vision can be a challenge.
A preview of the talk I'll be giving at the 2014 IA Summit in San Diego. An introduction to the web of data, and how the BBC and other organisations create products which remix original content with third-party data.
Put simply, the Experience Canvas is your ticket to getting the strategy right, both at the start, and whenever you have the opportunity to steer your strategy. It’s inspired by Alex Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas, and also borrows from Spark59′s Lean Canvas, which is itself a version of the Business Model Canvas optimised for lean startup operations.
The Experience Canvas is a framework for project teams of any size to ensure that the end result – whether it’s a minimum viable product (MVP), a new feature roll-out, even a process or other business initiative – is thorough, considered, user-centred and lean, without compromising on flexibility. The emphasis is on the experience to be achieved by that result; a minimum viable experience (MVE), if you will.
Information-on-the-move will be a key feature of the information dashboard in 2014. While web dashboards will provide users with in-depth insights and analysis, the mobile dashboard will be tailor-made to suit the information requirements of the user-on-the-go. Location intelligence, real-time data and predictive analytics will further make the dashboard richer and enable users to gain crucial business insights from their data.
The value of content strategy is hard to measure and even harder to forecast. For many content strategists, the hardest part of the job isn't even the content strategy work itself! It's getting your hands untied so that you can help the organization or client take action.
Data is what sets you free. By learning how to tell the story of your content and audience with data, you'll be able to move onward from just TALKING about content strategy to actually DOING it!
The demand for user experience designers has skyrocketed. Interest in UX as a career has soared along with that demand. Every UX designer gets asked how to get into the career, but the sad fact is that there’s no real answer to that question. Although demand is high, that demand is only for designers with 2-3 years of experience or more. There are simply not enough experienced designers to fill these positions, and this experience gap is a barrier to offering potential designers a consistent path from interest to employment.
Many have observed that design is a craft... How do you learn a craft? Education and practice. Apprenticeship is a model that fits that bill well, and during the summer of 2013 The Nerdery's UX team put it into practice. I want to share our program's successes and failures, our challenges and solutions, and some of the nitty-gritty details that made it go. The goal of this presentation is to make it easier for UX teams in other organizations to implement their own apprenticeship programs, which will ultimately make it easier for interested, talented, and passionate people to become UX designers.
Recently, a coalescing of Agile software development methods and UX design has resulted in what is being called Agile UX design. Agile UX design frames user experience design within the Agile development framework.
Airbnb started the project, appropriately code-named "Snow White," by creating a list of the emotional moments that comprise an Airbnb stay. They built the most important of those moments into stories.
