  3. 3. What have I been doing the last few years ? Large scale business transformation projects. Acting as the lynch pin between business, the user/customer and technology teams. Increasing revenue, workflow efficiency, usability Reducing cost and project risk Types of project: Browser/Desktop/Mobile/Enterprise/e-commerce/Service/Content •  UX project rescue and optimization •  UX discovery and strategy •  Greenfield product development and journey mapping
  4. 4. A few examples take a deep breath…….
  5. 5. Waitrose Ecommerce for Full Six London Problem I needed the business to have a shared vision and to understand how the right customer experience would impact on their business metrics and KPI’s. At the same time giving all stakeholders a voice so the business could see their opportunities and challenges in relation to the customer experience. A planning solution was needed that would frame the user experience in context to the business goals Finding the solution A cohesive strategic view of this multi channel retailers e-commerce offer was needed to break the cycle of tactical fixes to the online business – the user experience was getting lost and the business was loosing sales opportunities and causing frustration to their astonishingly loyal customer base. But where should they start? Creating an over arching customer journey formed the basis of this framework and formed ‘pillars of excellence’ that we could build upon.
  6. 6. Waitrose for Full Six London •  Lots of background, insight and analysis •  Lots of data analysis, and site assesment •  Lots of stakeholder engagement, interviews and contextual enquiry •  Lots and lots of post it notes •  Lots of extra calories Methods At the end the blueprint looked a little like this…..
  7. 7. Business KPI’s mapped against user journey
  8. 8. Over 100 recommendations for improving the customer experience against KPIs were identified from each sector of the user journey. Each was assessed in terms of complexity and customer benefit. Projects in the 'sweet spot' moved into scoping with full business support. Each then went on to wireframe and development.
  9. 9. Bupa Group/ Bupa International •  Leading their largest web transformation project to date. Full lifecycle legacy replacement. •  Results speak volumes. Additionally tasked with educating group businesses, selling UX, and building a team and methods that were faster, better, smarter. In the first month: 45% increase in transactions $ payments up 177% Self service administration increased 1300% with no promotion. Projected annual cost efficiency of £1.3 million ALL WITH NO FUNCTIONAL CHANGES
  10. 10. The legacy system Five international extranets for B2B and B2C claims, processing and management After unpicking it, and to gain buy in I described the sites ………….
  11. 11. Disorganised Trip hazards everywhere Functional but not fit for purpose Confusing language Like a teenagers bedroom, as sites were: Inefficient
  12. 12. Wire frame and prototype, no time/ money for user insight, I needed buy in first. The business didn’t want to talk to customers, I showed them how and the benefits that it would bring
  13. 13. Prototype and test with users internationally to validate the structure. Gaining insight here via extended test questioning. The business were truly amazed about what they learnt. Iterate and retest.
  14. 14. Managed the visual designers, curated visuals and content team. Coordinate stakeholders sign off *Visuals Charles Migut
  15. 15. The National Apprenticeship Service Problem Analysing data and interviewing stakeholders quickly revealed that the service did not understand their user base, user journeys were broken and tactical fix’s had no impact. A more strategic view of their future offer was needed. To provide insight I started by segmenting their user base. Which was broader than they first thought. Contextual interview to establish need and behaviour with: •  Existing candidates, •  Current Apprentices •  Partner organisations where there were touch points i.e. national telephone help centres •  Young and older potential target groups •  Small, medium and large employers •  Educational establishments and commercial training providers Three core user groups emerged for which I created personas. Finding the solution The UK Governments National Apprenticeship Service identified that they were under performing and not achieving policy objectives. They operate a complex public facing online system that manages and communicates to Apprenticeship candidates, employers and training providers.
