  2. 2. 3 Make or Break: Using User Experience Agenda • Statements about user experience • Users, architects, and systems • Common UXP problems • Risks and reactions • Fat, thin, fit • Recommendations 4 Make or Break: Using User Experience STATEMENTS ABOUT USER EXPERIENCE
  3. 3. 5 User Experience Is an epiphenomenon: • The visible consequences of the underlying system • The user is primarily aware of what is seen WYGIWYS “What you get is what you see.” Gillian Crampton Smith
  4. 4. 7 Fact Good user experience (UXP) makes it easier to accomplish sophisticated tasks. (How much do we understand what users need to do?) 8 Fact Good UXP does not stop at the glass. (But we tend to relegate UXP to visual design.)
  5. 5. 9 Fact Poor UXP impacts productivity. (Are we helping?) 10 Fact Poor UXP corrodes trust. (Do we assume that people are forgiving?)
  6. 6. 11 Fact UXP design challenges the human - machine boundary. (How comfortable are we at that boundary?) One of the major goals of the drive to higher levels has always been to make as natural as possible the task of communicating to the computer what you want it to do. Douglas Hofstadter Gödel, Escher, Bach
  7. 7. One of the major goals of the drive to higher levels has always been to make as natural as possible the task of communicating to the computer what you want it to do. (apologies to) Douglas Hofstadter Gödel, Escher, Bach 14 Make or Break: Using User Experience USERS, ARCHITECTS, AND SYSTEMS
  8. 8. External users ide outs e insid system Architects* Internal users 16 External Users External users are not captive, and they don’t want to be constrained. They are driven by fashion and commerce. They are sophisticated users of many technologies.
  9. 9. 17 Internal Users Internal users are captive, but… Their tasks are becoming more complicated. They expect similar technology at home and at work. User Experience 18 Kate, age 15 Hacked my router IMs, emails and talks on the phone... (…to the same person at the same time) Huge media consumer Needs little instruction Fearless
  10. 10. User Experience 19 Earl, age 70 1. When you say ‘phishing’ he thinks you mean it 2. Mistrusts the computer 3. Only uses the branch… 3.1. …but is starting to explore the internet and… 3.2 …will eventually find hisBank.com 20 User Goals Users want control of their transactions… …especially in an increasingly virtual world. “You know all about me, but I’m in control.” Wim Guerden
  11. 11. 21 User Goals Users want to limit complexity… …and decrease “time to done”. “I don’t want to be controlled by a technology. I just want to get on with my life.” Donald Norman 22 System Architect Goals Architects want to increase flexibility… …and decrease (internal) time to market. “One of the best things you can do is turn a large project into a small one by simplifying its architecture and process.” Martin Fowler
  12. 12. 23 Systems System layers change at different rates, and for different reasons. space plan services stuff structure skin site From How Buildings Learn: Stewart Brand External users Web 2.0 ide outs e insid system Architects* Enterprise 2.0 Internal users
