Why UX Matters

http://skelia.com/articles/why-ux-matters/

The software development trends are changing. Nowadays when average people are wearing glasses with built-in eyes image projectors, when a fridge or a microwave with an operating system and internet access doesn’t surprise anyone, magic words like user experience and usability are heard.

So, you want to create a great user experience? The truth is, it doesn’t matter how great of a user experience design team you hire. The success of your UX project lies as much on your shoulders as it does on the team or person that you hire.

I’ve worked internally at startups of all sizes, and have also consulted with a lot of companies through my freelance UX consulting practice. After years of experience, I’ve identified some common mistakes that companies make when working with a UX company or consultant, and how to avoid making them. By following this advice you’ll set your UX hires up to create a great experience for your product.

Profit Centered Design vs User Centered Design

Profit Centered Design vs User Centered Design

A month ago, Facebook revealed another redesign. Just as we’d gotten used to their last iteration, in came a fresh new look. Though fresh is perhaps the wrong choice of term. The news feed redesign initially took many aback, holding a somewhat retro feel. Current trends all point towards flat and minimalism. Facebook had done the opposite.

7 UX Topics Managers Need to Understand

http://mashable.com/2014/04/21/7-misperceptions-ux/

As someone who has been in the user experience domain for a loooooong time, I have had lots of conversations with many different executives. Most of the time, these execs knew how to spell "UX," but they didn't know much else about it. There are many misconceptions that need correcting and while it's sometimes frustrating, I also enjoy the opportunity to educate these key decision makers on the discipline and how it works.

Here are seven conversation topics that have come up in discussing UX with managers. All are worth pointing out to your boss - especially if you're a UX consultant and your boss is your client:

Unicorn, Shmunicorn: Be a Pegasus

If you’re reading this, you’re probably a designer. Maybe you code, maybe you don’t. But it’s likely you’re feeling more and more pressure to hone your programming skills and become that mythical product development creature who can both create compelling designs and write production code. There are plenty of reasons why being a unicorn isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But what you might not have considered is that aspiring to be a unicorn could be the biggest mistake of your career.

Getting More Out of Your UX Team

Getting More Out of Your UX Team

http://www.effectiveui.com/blog/2013/08 ... 321895#%21

"Over the past few years, as user experience or customer experience have become commonly understood terms with agreed upon importance, we’ve noticed that many organizations have begun bringing UX practitioners in-house and building out fully fledged UX teams. The new team is hired, dropped in place, and set out with a mandate to improve the experience of the organization’s customers."

The Rise of UX Leadership

http://blogs.hbr.org/cs/2013/07/the_ris ... _259491483

"UX, as user experience is known, is the new black in business culture. Most of the executives I meet with, regardless of their industry, now promote UX as key to their product strategy. That's a big change from only five years ago, when UX wasn't on anyone's radar outside the tech world. For a designer like myself, it's easy to recognize which executives know their products intimately, and which manage from a spreadsheet. Thankfully, I'm seeing the emergence of a new generation of UX-oriented leaders with little patience for the hands-off approach. They recognize that as UX eclipses traditional brand marketing, they need to be more hands-on with their products."

How to tell managers they’re wrong about UX research and still get hired

http://www.userfocus.co.uk/articles/how ... _243738973

"Heard these before? ‘Market research uses hundreds of people. How come you can get answers with just 5?’ ‘Our product is aimed at everyone, so we can use ourselves as users.’ ‘Users don‘t know what they want’ ‘Apple doesn‘t do user research so why should we?’ ‘Our agency does all of this for us.’ Here's how to successfully counter each of these objections."

Negotiate Criticism

"Our emotions about qualification, hard-work and the works leave us with expecting an approval all the time. How much ever we feel we are prepared for the critique, the moment we see it, we turn our faces in defence and become a non-listener!"
