How do we move from research to design to development without losing sight of the user experience. This session looks at specifying UX artifacts for team members to glean meaning from our work. How does experience design specify its output in a way that developers can code and business can understand how the UX relates to business requirements?

  18. 18. What’s Your Definition? • My definition? A detailed design is • The body of information that conveys sufficient detail to communicate that which can be coded. • Just enough detail to enable the non-UX team (dev, biz, mkt, release) to understand the UX designer’s intent. @mojoguzzi #dtlDesign 18 Tuesday, May 17, 2011

  33. 33. Special order 191 Major Taylor will proceed to Leesburg, Va., and arrange for transportation of the sick and those unable to walk to Winchester, securing the transportation of the country for this purpose. The route between this and Culpeper Court-House east of the mountains being unsafe will no longer be traveled. Those on the way to this army already across the river will move up promptly; all others will proceed to Winchester collectively and under command of officers, at which point, being the general depot of this army, its movements will be known and instructions given by commanding officer regulating further movements. III. The army will resume its march tomorrow, taking the Hagerstown road. General Jackson's command will form the advance, and, after passing Middletown, with such portion as he may select, take the route toward Sharpsburg, cross the Potomac at the most convenient point, and by Friday morning take possession of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, capture such of them as may be at Martinsburg, and intercept such as may attempt to escape from Harper's Ferry. IV. General Longstreet's command will pursue the main road as far as Boonsborough, where it will halt, with reserve, supply, and baggage trains of the army. V.General McLaws, with his own division and that of General R. H. Anderson, will follow General Longstreet. On reaching Middletown will take the route to Harper's Ferry, and by Friday morning possess himself of the Maryland Heights and endeavor to capture the enemy at Harper's Ferry and vicinity. @mojoguzzi #dtlDesign 33 Tuesday, May 17, 2011

  46. 46. Case Study: Agile and an FDA-Compliant Company “One can never get away from needing to provide 'objective evidence' of design inputs, verification & validation and design outputs, this being the bare framework of what is required by the FDA and most, if not all the international medical device quality requirements.” @mojoguzzi #dtlDesign 46 Tuesday, May 17, 2011

  48. 48. Desiree Sy’s Approach @mojoguzzi #dtlDesign 48 Tuesday, May 17, 2011
  49. 49. Find a way to detail your design  You can’t develop a user-centered product from user stories  You can use personas to ask, “What would Juan do?”  Take photos of sketches. Place them in the backlog.  Embed scenarios into the backlog for empathy traceability @mojoguzzi #dtlDesign 49 Tuesday, May 17, 2011

  53. 53. So... Detailed design is...  The body of information that conveys sufficient detail to communicate that which can be coded.  Just enough detail to enable the developer to understand the UX designer’s intent.  The codification of our empathy with users. @mojoguzzi #dtlDesign 53 Tuesday, May 17, 2011
