I do think that designers need to be facilitator as well.
OneSpring's comment, June 26, 2013 10:11 AM
At OneSpring, I function as UX thought leader & facilitator/producer on all engagements that I lead. Having a UX designer in place, not only project facilitator but as Client liaison as well, allows for much smoother communication of vision between my team and project stakeholders. It allows us to operate both Lean & Agile in terms of generating necessary stakeholder consensus (eg Critical Mass) for getting our visualization prototypes and translating into requirements for development.

Michael, sounds like a great balance. You speak about a very close integration of project management and UX strategy. I wish more web PMs aligned their work a bit more with this vision. Do you also practice project management in the sense of SOWs, human resource and risk management aspects? If so, do you mind direct message me with your answer?

Do you agree with  Apple CEO Tim Cook statement?  


"Most people that have worked on [mobile payments] have started by focusing on creating a business model that was centered around their self-interest instead of focusing on the user experience."


@Googlewallet focused on the customer too, but did not win over merchants, which impacts the overall user experience.

Great slideshare from Scott Liewehr.

#Customer Perceived Experience minus Customer Expected Experience = Customer Satisfaction


#Brands that don't view the consumer empowerment phenomenon as an opportunity will die!


Do you agree with both?

SO TRUE, responsive design is MEANS not ENDS. Mobile first requires a healthy rethink of... We'll everything. As we interact in a more social and iterative way our S / R curves. The nature of what we lucky few #Internetmarketers do these days is shifting once again. The #socialmobile web changes the nature! tone and tenor of our interactions. Our customers expect involvement and the ability to interact with US (website creators) and each other (customers).

David Swaddle's curator insight, August 31, 4:28 PM

This article got me thinking. It's about transitions in user interface design with some very nice animated examples.

 

Are the transitions shown here useful in a learning context, or are they merely window dressing that detracts from learnability? Personally, I think that while they look nice the first time, most of these transitions become annoying with time, simply delaying users. Mayer and others have shown how eye-candy can often be detrimental to learning.

 

Is it time for some generous academic to re-evaluate the situation in light of recent UX designs, preferably in a corporate setting? Or, maybe somebody already has and some kind soul could post here and point me in the right direction?

The Psychology of Color in Marketing and Branding via HuffPost

The Psychology of Color in Marketing and Branding via HuffPost | UX Design | Scoop.it

Marty Note
Great HuffPost roundup of several important infographics and psychology of color studies. Which ones surprised you? Problem is every website wants ALL of those emotions, but not all at once (lol). Key is picking right color for right content / place on your site.

RED may SUCK as a homepage because it chases people away, but red could ROCK as an accent. Red "buy" buttons have only been beat ONE TIME in thousands of tests we've run. So find the right color conversation and have it at the right time.

At Curagami (http://www.Curagami.com) we think of colors as ways to help tell stories. We try to "match the hatch" of the story we are telling to colors in our images or within supporting graphics such as icons or widgets.

When our story is EXCITING we like RED or variations of it. We may also isolate the red by using black and white. Isolating red makes its power SHOUT in just the right minimal way sometimes. Too much red makes you want to RELAX so we may follow a RED with a soothing green or blue.

Websites are hub and spoke so it van be impossible to map stories to color in sequence. BUT if you match the PAGE to your colors you can win and be sure to daisy chain content telling the same story with enough similar colors and scenttrail to create a sense of connection. If you tell a GREEN story and suddenly smack your readers with too much red they RUN.

Win the page, link the page and win the psychology of color battle in your web design.

And YES I'm breaking my Big Blogs curation rule for the 3rd time in a day (lol). Soon as you state a stupid rule like that you break it and that is a definite RULE (lol). M

It’s time to stop the philosophical debate about whether investing in the experience of your customers is the right business decision. This isn’t a question of beliefs — it’s a question about the behavior of your customers. Connect the right data, and not only is it possible to quantify the impact of the difference between delivering a great experience and delivering a poor one — but it will demonstrate to everyone in your organization just how big that impact can be.
