  19. 19. “The average business metrics improvementafter a usability redesign is now 83%.This is substantially less than 6 years ago(135%), but ROI remains high becauseusability is still cheap relative to gains.” Jacob Nielsen, 2008
  20. 20. ROI of UX
  21. 21. 1 Based on a fatal misconceptionManagers think that design is extra work,therefore they need to find out if it`s worth it.“…whether design is necessary or affordable arequite beside the point: design is inevitable.The alternative to good design is bad design,not no design at all” Douglas Martin Book Design
  22. 22. 2 Not applicable in the formal senseROI is a quantitative financial approach andfocus on values that are forseen an easilymeasured.UX is about finding new ways of helping peopledo what they want in smarter ways, andchanging peoples behavioirs.The UXdesign process is itself a way ofchanging business.
