Today, the most popular way people prefer to make contact with organizations is online as customers embrace new digital channels. We needed to modernize our digital presence to take the conversation to the channels where those conversations are taking place. Utilizing an Agile approach allowed us to increase site usability and responsiveness to consumer needs.
This presentation will demonstrate how to use Agile and user-centered design tools and techniques to foster collaboration and buy-in from stakeholders and optimize digital communications channels. The presenter will demonstrate how personas were developed and workshopped with key groups to determine the needs and wants of consumers. The personas were used to develop user stories which formed the basis of the requirements and minimum marketable features of the site. Card sorting was used to understand how consumers classified the information and what features were of value. A prototype was developed . This prototype was a “skinny” version of the site and was used to communicate functionality and desired look and feel of the site to the team and to validate the site with consumers.
• User-centered tools and techniques are effective way to improve collaboration and encourage communication with stakeholders and within the development and design team
• Using a multidisciplinary approach (Agile and User Centered Design) enables you to ensure that the website is useable, adaptive and meets the digital needs of the modern 21st century consumer
