  • It’s theExperience, stupid.
  • UX is not UI • UI is what people user to interact with the product • UX is how they feel while they interact with the product • UI is TECHNICAL • UX is EMOTIONAL • UI is a small part of UX
  • Why is UX Hard? • User experience needs to be a competence, not a function • Creating great user experiences takes a multidisciplinary team that shares ownership of UX • Truly great UX design occurs when the designer’s, client’s and user’s perspectives are considered
  • Why UX matters? • Mobile success is measured by the effectiveness of the UX design • The UX design is typically NOT decided by just ONE stakeholder. • Thought leadership in UX is hard! But if done right, it binds a customer to you.
  • Be Agile
  • Embrace Change! • Change in Mobile Development is inevitable! • Agile Methodology allows you to bend, not break • Delivery results regularly • Get the UX to the targeted devices ASAP
  • In Summary
  • Summary • Listen to clients goals and create a comprehensive mobile solution that solves the problem today and creates a framework for tomorrow. • Focus on the UX, follow with a compelling UI • Delivery in an Agile manner • Get the UX to the device quickly
