User Experience for Business Analysts

3,090 views

Published on

Presented to the IIBA (International Institute of Business Analysis) Pittsburgh, PA Chapter on February 8, 2016.

Most Business Analysts have plenty of experience when it comes to mapping database fields across a system interface, but where do you put those fields in a user interface? As BAs, we're used to wearing different hats: Project Manager, Tester, Developer. But since the invention of the iPod, everyone is becoming more aware of User Experience.

We've all experienced a hard-to-use website or those old green screen applications where you had the F-Key menus memorized by the end of your first month. But F-Keys and clicking through ten pages of options to get to the submit button won't cut it anymore.

In this presentation Carol Smith walks us through some basics to help you create a User Experience that won't make your end users to throw up their hands in frustration.

Methods such as user focused interviews, card sorts and usability testing best practices are introduced with the intent that BA's can use these tools immediately in their workplace.
