  • 1. Memi Beltrame Embracing Collaborative Design On the Acceptance of UX in the Development Process UXCon, December 3rd 2009 Lugano, Switzerland Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 2. About • Developing websites since 1997 • 2003-2007 Study of cinematography • Since 2007 specialising in frontend and interaction design • Since 2008 for Liip Agile Web Development Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 3. Misson Show the dynamics of collaborative design Show ways to raise acceptance of UX in development Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 4. The Internet Browser War dotcom Pl op ! 1993 1995 1998 2000 03 04 05 06 2009 High interaction apps, Increased need for UX Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 5. Until 2003 UX Design was only rarely a part of the commission and development process for websites. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 6. Rich internet applications brought a higher sensitivity to the users needs. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 7. UX concepts as a response to shape customer and user experience Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 8. Developers meet UX experts with scepticism and little acceptance Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 9. Why? Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 10. To find out we need to do two things: ● Know the process ● Understand the expectations Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 11. The process: Collaborative Design Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 12. From Collaboration To Collaborative Design Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 13. Collaboration is the successful sharing of a working environment in a joint effort to accomplish a task Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 14. Collaborative design is collaboration with the task of creating an artefact Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 15. Collaborative Design takes place whenever an artefact is planned and/or implemented by two or more participants. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 16. Typical Collaborative Design Areas Architecture Software Movies Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 17. The Internet is (probably) the biggest single instance of Collaborative Design Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 18. Collaborative Design is a reality. It is the inevitable process that emerges when you build something as a team. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 19. Unlike UCD or TDD it is nothing you choose, it just happens, nolens volens. UCD: User centered design TDD: Test driven development Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 20. Even the simplest Customer < > Contractor Relationship involves Collaborative Design Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 21. It involves is a network of participants Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 22. The goal is a common product with a high overall utility Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 23. Every participant can propose solutions for design issues Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 24. Participants are inter-dependent. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 25. Participants are inter-dependent. Inter-dependency means „I need something“ Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 26. Every participant has a self-interest Customer: Affordable yet magic Developer: solid, stable and performing Designer: beautiful and usable Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 27. Fulfilling self-interest means Reaching a local optimum of utility Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 28. Are participants willing to compromise their self interest for the sake of a global optimum? Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 29. A B C D global Utility Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 30. A B C D global Utility Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 31. The system can become very complex Interface Designer Webserver Management Developer Proxy UX expert Mobile Services DB Specialist DB Admin Project Lead Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 32. It's hard to keep track of the interactions and design decisions Interface Designer Webserver Management Developer Proxy UX expert Mobile Services DB Specialist DB Admin Project Lead Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 33. Subsytems can emerge Interface Designer Webserver Management Developer Proxy UX expert Mobile Services DB Specialist DB Admin Project Lead Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 34. Subsytems also have a local optimum utility plus they are loyal! Interface Designer Webserver Management Developer Proxy UX expert Mobile Services DB Specialist DB Admin Project Lead Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 35. Every new participant brings a shift in the global utility. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 36. Every old participant must be aware of this and accept it. Otherwise the team is possibly ripped apart. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 37. Successful Collaborative Design is based on the commitment of each participant to achieve an optimum of overall utility. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 38. Acceptance Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 39. UX brought a paradigm shift to a whole industry UX Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 40. UX brought a paradigm shift to a whole industry UX Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 41. Why does this change happen with considerable problems? Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 42. Before UX: Developers modelled processes according to their instead of the user's needs. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 43. Before UX: An application's utility was not anyone's explicit responsibility Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 44. Before UX: Utility did not figure as a criteria for quality assertion in the conceptual phase Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 45. Measurability Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 46. Criteria for quality assertion: ● Performance (computing speed, interface response) ● Drain on resources (bandwidth, disk-space, file-size) ● Implementation standards (normalisation, unit/functional testing, validation) ● Deficiency (incomplete or faulty implementation) ● Duration, cost (on time, on budget) ● Utility (relevance of information, ease of task completion) Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 47. Criteria for quality assertion: ● Performance (computing speed, interface response) ● Drain on resources (bandwidth, disk-space, file-size) ● Implementation standards (normalisation, unit/functional testing, validation) Easy to ● Deficiency (incomplete or faulty implementation) measure ● Duration, cost (on time, on budget) ● Utility (relevance of information, ease of task completion) Hard to measure Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 48. Hard to measure: Utility needs a process involving users to be asserted. It's findings are hard to read and difficult to interpret. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 49. The user is the only valid measuring instrument to assert utility. Simultaneously being tester and testee deprives the developer from objectivity. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 50. Objectivity is only possible if the results do not depend on the tester. Only measurements based on objectivity lead to reliability and validity. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 51. Expectation Management Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 52. It is important to continuously manage stakeholder expectations. Identify what each stakeholder can and cannot do. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 53. Two essential demands: 1. Device proficiency 2. Completenes of information Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 54. Device proficiency Be familiar with the conventions of use on the device as well as its limitations. Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 55. Completenes of information: Information architecture proposed must be complete and consistent. Incompleteness paves the way for arbitrariness Provide methodological guidance Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 56. Raising Acceptance Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 57. Successful Acceptance: Reciprocal understanding of each others standards and expectations Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
  • 58. This helps acceptance: ● Clear, unambiguous negotiation ● Alliances ● Shared experiences ● Common achievements ● High iteration workflows ● Frequent synchronisation Memi Beltrame: Embracing Collaborative Design - UXCon Lugano
