SOUND

I can’t find anything on this site.

Why do I have to click so many times to do anything?

I hate this system, because it is impossible to use.

I like the old one better.

This site so ugly, it hurts my eyes!

These fields should be filled in automatically.

This system is so clunky.

This is taking way longer than it should.

Why are all these fields required?

This isn’t what I thought would happen.

I must have clicked on the wrong thing

This system is missing a critical feature I need to do my job.

I’ll just have to find the data myself and dump it to a spreadsheet.

Why are requirements taking so long to define?

When can I see what the system will look like?

This isn’t what I expected the screen to look like.

There aren’t enough details in this requirements specification.

The requirements specification is too detailed to consume.

Why isn’t anyone using the system?

Why aren’t we seeing the ROI we anticipated?

It was just user error.

That’s a training issue.

FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

48

Page 49: User Centered Design Overview

How long does UCD take? Will it impact my project timeline? Yes, but hopefully in a good way. UCD is an alternative design approach that usually replaces antiquated methods. That being said, UCD will be tailored to your project, but it usually requires “front-loading” additional effort early in the project. The philosophy is to “fail fast” to uncover problem areas earlier using UCD methods instead of discovering the problems late in development stages of the project.

FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

49

Page 50: User Centered Design Overview

It sounds complicated. Won’t I need a large team of UCD experts? Not necessarily. The UCD process is easy to teach and learn. A single UCD professional can lead a team of resources including client team members through the process. Although many of the techniques have fancy names, the exercises are not only easy to learn and execute, but they are usually fun to perform as well.

FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

50

Page 51: User Centered Design Overview

It sounds expensive. How much does it cost? One of the benefits of the UCD approach is that total development and maintenance costs are reduced. In addition, an effective user experience promotes user adoption and productivity. As a result, you are more likely to realize your return on investment which may include key performance metrics such as increased company revenue.

FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

51

Page 52: User Centered Design Overview

Do I have to adopt the entire UCD process? Absolutely not. Can it be customized? Absolutely! Every project is unique and the UCD approach can be tailored to the specific needs of the client, project, team, and business objectives. UCD provides a structured design framework but its flexibility allows a project team to craft an approach that considers all project factors.

FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

52

Page 53: User Centered Design Overview

Does it work with Waterfall and Agile project methodologies? Yes, UCD is not dependant upon a specific project management methodology. UCD does lend itself better to agile methodologies, because of similar philosophies of short iterations, sprints, and speed to completion.

FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

53

Page 54: User Centered Design Overview

Do I really need all this? Isn’t all this just to make stuff look pretty? UCD is comprised of a wealth of disciplines. Visual and graphic design is a key discipline, but an effective user experience is dependant upon a well-round design that was a aided by UCD. Of course, you can forego the User Centered Design for more traditional design approaches, but expectations should not be set any higher than the results of past initiatives.

FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

54

Page 55: User Centered Design Overview

What is the Return on Investment (ROI) for UCD? There is not return on investment for a design methodology like UCD. The product, application, system, or solution, on the other hand, should have an ROI. UCD is an ROI enabler for a particular initiative. Achieving certain user adoption levels is normally a prerequisite to seeing any return on any systemic investment. UCD is an ROI stimulant, because its ultimate goal is user experience and user adoption is the most significant benefit of UCD.
