Five Steps to Storytelling with Data

Five Steps to Storytelling with Data | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it

Fjord has identified five core principals to follow when embarking on a data visualization challenge.

Michael Allenberg's insight:

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.

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.

It takes into account all perspectives (e.g business, technical, marketing, brand) but privileges the intended user experience.

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

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

Michael Allenberg's insight:

Quite possibly the most original and thought-provoking post in a while! Absolutely essential conceptual thinking from a unique perspective... Combining elements of Experience Design that are integral to the success of cross-disciplinary Agile teams, while retaining the spirit and velocity of Scrum!

Interesting differentiation between Agile based user stories, requirements specification and then personas. Well worth a read if you want to get familiar with Agile methodology based requirements management....
