  47. 47. Case Study.
  48. 48. In order to better understand some of the steps in our process, we are going to dive deeper into one site’s experience.
  49. 49. We are going to explore three steps of our Discovery phase. 1.  Define business & user goals 2.  Feature prioritization 3.  Concept sketching
  50. 50. Our case study: freshdirect
  51. 51. User goals: The goals and needs that people have. This doesn’t necessarily need to be tied to an online experience.
  52. 52. Our user might say… “I’m a busy mom, I want buying groceries to be fast and convenient.” “Sales and discount are a priority for me.” “I won’t order vegetables without seeing them, but I will get my staples online.”
  53. 53. That translates to these user goals. “I’mabusymom,Iwantbuyinggroceriestobefastandconvenient.” Make the experience simple and personalized. “Salesanddiscountareapriorityforme.” Keep offers prominent and available. “Iwon’tordervegetableswithoutseeingthem,butIwillgetmystaplesonline.” Make repeat buys easy.
  54. 54. Business goals: Help boost the brand and increase profitability.
  55. 55. The business might say… “I want to get people to the products they want faster.” “I want people to think ‘freshdirect’when they think groceries.” “I want our customers to order anytime & anywhere they want.”
  56. 56. This translates to these business goals. “Iwanttogetpeopletotheproductstheywantfaster.” Decrease the number of steps it takes to find a product on the site. “Iwantpeopletothink‘freshdirect’whentheythinkgroceries.” Increase brand awareness through marketing and elevated experiences. “Iwantourcustomerstoorderanytime&anywheretheywant.” Create a branded experience across devices.
  57. 57. Activity 1: Goals Review the freshdirect site for 10 minutes in your groups. Define what you think the three primary business and user goals are from the site.
  58. 58. Review goals.
  59. 59. Next, let’s take a look at a single page and assess it’s experience.
  60. 60. Is this page meeting your goals?
  61. 61. Is this page meeting your goals? “Sales and discount are a priority for me.”
  62. 62. Are deals prominent enough?
  63. 63. Activity 2: Feature prioritization With your user & biz goals in mind, Take 10 minutes in your group to list out the top 5 features on the page.
  64. 64. Review top 5 features.
  65. 65. Now let’s review one module on the product page and redo it.
  66. 66. Now we’re going to sketch. Here are some things to think about. •  Bring your priorities to the front •  Remove features in the module •  Add something new •  Change the interaction •  Change the language •  Don’t worry about what the sketch looks like
  67. 67. Activity 3: Sketch Again, keeping your goals as priorities, take 15 minutes to sketch 2 other versions of this module individually. Choose one favorite from the group to present.
  68. 68. Review favorite sketch.
  69. 69. You have learned some of the basics in UX today. We hope you had fun and thanks!
