1. Do You Need User Experience Help?
Providing a good User Experience is core to your business success.
But it can also be a challenging world to navigate.
Customers (or users) have the best experience when:
a) it is useful, that is they thing they are using solves
a real problem for them
b) it is useable, that is it is easy to complete tasks,
ﬁnd information or things, and they don't experience
the all too typical frustration so many of us have when
c) it is compelling, that is there is delight, joy, beauty,
or the ease that comes with true simplicity associated
with using the product, website, product or service
