 Usability	
  testing	
  ≠	
  a	
  good	
  user	
  experience!	
  

        	
  Strategic	
  user	
  experience	
  planning	
  can	
  yield	
  
             a	
  unified	
  and	
  consistent	
  user	
  experience.	
  	
  

          And	
  strategic	
  design	
  leads	
  to	
  great	
  user	
  
                               experiences.

 Usability	
  testing	
  is	
  
            almost	
  always	
  
            tactical	
  and	
  short-­‐
            term	
  focused.	
  

        	
  Even	
  when	
  done	
  
            across	
  releases…the	
  
            results	
  are	
  almost	
  
            always	
  used	
  
            tactically.

Usability	
  testing	
  and	
  evaluation	
  can	
  find	
  
        problems	
  with	
  your	
  site	
  or	
  product.	
  	
  

        But	
  the	
  method	
  is	
  not	
  well	
  suited	
  for:	
  
          Crafting	
  a	
  unified	
  user	
  experience	
  
          Planning	
  for	
  tomorrow’s	
  user	
  experience	
  
          Creating	
  delight,	
  loyalty,	
  stickiness

Delight	
  
                Loyalty	
  
               Stickiness	
  

        How	
  do	
  you	
  attain	
  these?	
  


5	
  
By	
  designing	
  the	
  user	
  
               experience:	
  

                      For	
  now.	
  
                    For	
  next	
  year.	
  
            And	
  the	
  years	
  after	
  that.	
  


6	
  
And	
  designing	
  the	
  entire	
  
                        experience…	
  	
  

        Not	
  just	
  your	
  product	
  or	
  web	
  site’s	
  user	
  interface.	
  
         Or	
  your	
  email	
  campaign’s	
  HTML	
  formatting.	
  Or	
  
                         the	
  user	
  assistance	
  content.

Strategy	
  vs.	
  tactics

 “[Strategy	
  is]	
  A	
  long	
  term	
  plan	
  of	
  action	
  
            designed	
  to	
  achieve	
  a	
  particular	
  goal.”	
  

        	
  “Strategy	
  is	
  differentiated	
  from	
  tactics	
  or	
  
            immediate	
  actions	
  by	
  its	
  orientation	
  on	
  
            affecting

 Strategic	
  plan:	
  
             Go	
  from	
  airport	
  
             to	
  hotel	
  

         	
  Tactics:	
  	
  
         	
  Make	
  some	
  
             turns	
  


11	
  
“Find	
  and	
  fix”	
  usability	
  is	
  like	
  
                   making	
  a	
  turn.	
  	
  

                      It’s	
  a	
  good	
  thing	
  to	
  do…	
  	
  
              If	
  you	
  know	
  where	
  you’re	
  going.	
  

                                  Do	
  you?

 At	
  many	
  companies,	
  various	
  groups	
  and	
  
             departments	
  are	
  not	
  aligned	
  around	
  
             creating	
  the	
  best	
  user	
  experience	
  possible.	
  	
  

         	
  In	
  fact,	
  some	
  groups	
  are	
  incented	
  to	
  
             create	
  a	
  bad	
  user	
  experience.	
  	
  

         	
  How	
  can	
  that	
  be?	
  Easy…unintended	
  
             consequences	
  of	
  incentive	
  structures.	
  	
  

14	
  
 Example:	
  Imagine	
  a	
  fictional	
  company	
  where	
  
             a	
  marketing	
  department	
  is	
  responsible	
  for	
  
             shipping	
  and	
  fulfillment.	
  	
  

         	
  Imagine	
  they	
  charged	
  $15.95	
  USD	
  to	
  ship	
  a	
  
             box	
  of	
  software.	
  And	
  this	
  made	
  the	
  
             department	
  500K	
  yearly.	
  	
  

         	
  How	
  many	
  people	
  do	
  you	
  think	
  abandoned	
  
             their	
  shopping	
  carts	
  when	
  they	
  saw	
  that	
  
             price?	
  
15	
  
 …and	
  how	
  many	
  customers	
  do	
  you	
  think	
  
             were	
  lost	
  because	
  of	
  this	
  one	
  short-­‐sighted	
  
             decision?	
  




16	
  
 Usability	
  testing	
  and	
  user-­‐centered	
  design	
  
             can	
  only	
  do	
  so	
  much.	
  

         	
  To	
  create	
  great	
  user	
  experiences,	
  you	
  have	
  to	
  
             take	
  a	
  holistic	
  -­‐	
  and	
  strategic	
  –	
  approach.

What	
  is	
  usability?	
  	
  
           Your	
  intended	
  users	
  can	
  accomplish	
  what	
  
            they’re	
  trying	
  to	
  do	
  on	
  your	
  site	
  or	
  with	
  your	
  
            product.	
  	
  

         What	
  is	
  user	
  experience?	
  
           The	
  positive	
  AND	
  negative	
  attitudes	
  and	
  
            affect	
  generated	
  from	
  interacting	
  with	
  your	
  
            offering,	
  on	
  several	
  dimensions.

 …but	
  only	
  a	
  part.	
  	
  




22	
  
Measure	
  it	
  
           There	
  are	
  many	
  ways	
  to	
  do	
  this.	
  
           NPS	
  (net	
  promoter	
  score)	
  is	
  one	
  of	
  them,	
  but	
  
            it	
  doesn’t	
  capture	
  all	
  the	
  dimensions	
  of	
  user	
  
            experience.	
  

         There	
  is	
  no	
  one	
  best	
  way	
  
           My	
  advice:	
  multiple	
  methods,	
  multiple	
  
            measures.	
  
           Both	
  quantitative	
  and	
  qualitative.	
  
23	
  
 The	
  first	
  step	
  is	
  to	
  
             become	
  aware	
  of	
  
             the	
  	
  problems!	
  

         	
  How?	
  	
  

         	
  Walk	
  through	
  the	
  
             entire	
  customer	
  
             experience.	
  	
  

24	
  
 From	
  sign-­‐up	
  to	
  initial	
  
             use…free	
  to	
  pay	
  
             conversion…calling	
  
             and	
  emailing	
  help,	
  
             tech	
  support,	
  and	
  
             billing…even	
  closing	
  
             the	
  account.	
  



25	
  
 If	
  you	
  don’t	
  know	
  about	
  this	
  concept,	
  talk	
  to	
  
             your	
  product	
  managers.	
  They	
  do.

How	
  do	
  you	
  “do”	
  strategic	
  user	
  
                       experience?	
  	
  

               It	
  sometimes	
  means	
  	
  big	
  changes.	
  	
  

          It	
  often	
  drives	
  process	
  and	
  organizational	
  
                             structure	
  changes.	
  

30	
  
 Remember,	
  in	
  many	
  organizations,	
  
             departments	
  and	
  teams	
  are	
  incented	
  to	
  
             create	
  bad	
  user	
  experiences.	
  

         	
  Changing	
  organization	
  structures	
  and	
  
             incentives	
  to	
  refocus	
  on	
  the	
  customer	
  is	
  hard	
  
             work.

32	
  
The

  truth:	
  most	
  
         organizations	
  don’t	
  align	
  on	
  the	
  
                user	
  experience.	
  




33	
  
 Everybody’s.	
  And	
  nobody’s.	
  	
  

         	
  That’s	
  the	
  problem.	
  	
  




34	
  
How	
  do	
  you	
  take	
  a	
  strategic	
  
         approach	
  to	
  creating	
  a	
  great	
  	
  
                 user	
  experience?	
  	
  

                 	
  Four	
  very	
  hard	
  easy	
  steps…	
  

35	
  
 1.	
  Alignment	
  
         	
  Find	
  the	
  disincentives	
  to	
  delivering	
  a	
  good	
  
             user	
  experience,	
  then	
  surface	
  them	
  to	
  your	
  
             leadership.	
  Eliminate	
  them.	
  

         	
  Advocate	
  for	
  tweaking	
  the	
  business	
  model	
  if	
  
             you	
  need	
  to.	
  	
  

         	
  Don’t	
  take	
  “bad	
  profits”.	
  Bad	
  profits	
  are	
  
             unsustainable	
  profits.	
  
36	
  
 2.	
  Values	
  
         	
  Be	
  open	
  to	
  learning	
  about	
  and	
  improving	
  the	
  
             user	
  experience.	
  	
  

         	
  Those	
  aphorisms	
  about	
  the	
  customer	
  always	
  	
  
             being	
  right?	
  They’re	
  all	
  true.	
  

         	
  Remember	
  the	
  guy	
  who	
  complained	
  about	
  
             the	
  food	
  on	
  Virgin	
  Air?	
  He’s	
  now	
  a	
  taster.	
  
             Stunt?	
  Yes.	
  But	
  effective	
  and	
  revealing!	
  
37	
  
 3.	
  Assess	
  the	
  user	
  experience	
  holistically	
  
         	
  Traverse	
  the	
  customer	
  corridor.	
  Assess	
  the	
  
             total	
  experience	
  –	
  not	
  just	
  the	
  UI.	
  

         	
  Find	
  the	
  sticky	
  points,	
  the	
  little	
  trapdoors.	
  

         	
  Remember,	
  one	
  bad	
  touchpoint	
  affects	
  the	
  
             whole	
  brand.	
  

38	
  
 4.	
  Leverage	
  user	
  experience	
  design	
  
         	
  Don’t	
  just	
  fix	
  the	
  little	
  user	
  experience	
  
             trapdoors	
  and	
  holes.	
  	
  

         	
  Assess	
  and	
  redesign	
  the	
  customer	
  
             touchpoints…	
  all	
  of	
  them.	
  Even	
  the	
  IVR.	
  	
  




39	
  
Yeah,	
  but…	
  how	
  do	
  I	
  get	
  my	
  
           organization	
  to	
  do	
  this?

Usability...Or Strategic User Experience?

  • 2.  Usability  testing  ≠  a  good  user  experience!    Strategic  user  experience  planning  can  yield   a  unified  and  consistent  user  experience.     And  strategic  design  leads  to  great  user   experiences.   2  
  • 3.  Usability  testing  is   almost  always   tactical  and  short-­‐ term  focused.    Even  when  done   across  releases…the   results  are  almost   always  used   tactically.   3  
  • 4. Usability  testing  and  evaluation  can  find   problems  with  your  site  or  product.     But  the  method  is  not  well  suited  for:     Crafting  a  unified  user  experience     Planning  for  tomorrow’s  user  experience     Creating  delight,  loyalty,  stickiness   4  
  • 5. Delight   Loyalty   Stickiness   How  do  you  attain  these?   5  
  • 6. By  designing  the  user   experience:   For  now.   For  next  year.   And  the  years  after  that.   6  
  • 7. And  designing  the  entire   experience…     Not  just  your  product  or  web  site’s  user  interface.   Or  your  email  campaign’s  HTML  formatting.  Or   the  user  assistance  content.     7  
  • 9.  “[Strategy  is]  A  long  term  plan  of  action   designed  to  achieve  a  particular  goal.”    “Strategy  is  differentiated  from  tactics  or   immediate  actions  by  its  orientation  on   affecting  future,  not  immediate   conditions.”   Wikipedia.org   9  
  • 10. 10  
  • 11.  Strategic  plan:   Go  from  airport   to  hotel    Tactics:      Make  some   turns   11  
  • 12. “Find  and  fix”  usability  is  like   making  a  turn.     It’s  a  good  thing  to  do…     If  you  know  where  you’re  going.   Do  you?   12  
  • 13. 13  
  • 14.  At  many  companies,  various  groups  and   departments  are  not  aligned  around   creating  the  best  user  experience  possible.      In  fact,  some  groups  are  incented  to   create  a  bad  user  experience.      How  can  that  be?  Easy…unintended   consequences  of  incentive  structures.     14  
  • 15.  Example:  Imagine  a  fictional  company  where   a  marketing  department  is  responsible  for   shipping  and  fulfillment.      Imagine  they  charged  $15.95  USD  to  ship  a   box  of  software.  And  this  made  the   department  500K  yearly.      How  many  people  do  you  think  abandoned   their  shopping  carts  when  they  saw  that   price?   15  
  • 16.  …and  how  many  customers  do  you  think   were  lost  because  of  this  one  short-­‐sighted   decision?   16  
  • 17.  Usability  testing  and  user-­‐centered  design   can  only  do  so  much.    To  create  great  user  experiences,  you  have  to   take  a  holistic  -­‐  and  strategic  –  approach.   17  
  • 18.  I’m  not  the  only  person  saying  this:      Steve  Baty  –  “Being  An  Experience-­‐Led  Organization”    http://bit.ly/40xrLP    Jared  Spool  –  UPA  2009  keynote      (I’ll  find  a  link  somewhere…)    And  many  others.   18  
  • 19. Usability  and  user  experience   19  
  • 20. What  is  usability?       Your  intended  users  can  accomplish  what   they’re  trying  to  do  on  your  site  or  with  your   product.     What  is  user  experience?     The  positive  AND  negative  attitudes  and   affect  generated  from  interacting  with  your   offering,  on  several  dimensions.     20  
  • 21. From  Peter  Morville:  http://semanticstudios.com/publications/semantics/000029.php   21  
  • 22.  …but  only  a  part.     22  
  • 23. Measure  it     There  are  many  ways  to  do  this.     NPS  (net  promoter  score)  is  one  of  them,  but   it  doesn’t  capture  all  the  dimensions  of  user   experience.   There  is  no  one  best  way     My  advice:  multiple  methods,  multiple   measures.     Both  quantitative  and  qualitative.   23  
  • 24.  The  first  step  is  to   become  aware  of   the    problems!    How?      Walk  through  the   entire  customer   experience.     24  
  • 25.  From  sign-­‐up  to  initial   use…free  to  pay   conversion…calling   and  emailing  help,   tech  support,  and   billing…even  closing   the  account.   25  
  • 26.  If  you  don’t  know  about  this  concept,  talk  to   your  product  managers.  They  do.   A  typical  product  manager-­‐y  image…     26  
  • 27.  Check  your  IVR!  Most  are  horrible!  (IT   typically  designs  the  prompts  and  call  flows.)   27  
  • 28.  Just  because  you  do  GUI  doesn’t  mean  you   can  do  VUI…    VUI  expert  Susan  Hura    “Is  Your  Goal  To  Get  Rid  Of  Money?”    http://bit.ly/2yehF    “Are  You  Working  Hard  To  Suck  Less?”    http://bit.ly/18vVP1   28  
  • 29.  She’s  my  wife.    She’s  also  the  best   VUI  usability  expert   around.   29  
  • 30. How  do  you  “do”  strategic  user   experience?     It  sometimes  means    big  changes.     It  often  drives  process  and  organizational   structure  changes.   30  
  • 31.  Remember,  in  many  organizations,   departments  and  teams  are  incented  to   create  bad  user  experiences.    Changing  organization  structures  and   incentives  to  refocus  on  the  customer  is  hard   work.   31  
  • 32.  Offline:      Nordstrom’s.  Virgin  Air.    Online:    Zappos.  Amazon.  Land’s  End.  (Offline  too.)      Who  else?   32  
  • 33. The  sad  truth:  most   organizations  don’t  align  on  the   user  experience.   33  
  • 34.  Everybody’s.  And  nobody’s.      That’s  the  problem.     34  
  • 35. How  do  you  take  a  strategic   approach  to  creating  a  great     user  experience?      Four  very  hard  easy  steps…   35  
  • 36.  1.  Alignment    Find  the  disincentives  to  delivering  a  good   user  experience,  then  surface  them  to  your   leadership.  Eliminate  them.    Advocate  for  tweaking  the  business  model  if   you  need  to.      Don’t  take  “bad  profits”.  Bad  profits  are   unsustainable  profits.   36  
  • 37.  2.  Values    Be  open  to  learning  about  and  improving  the   user  experience.      Those  aphorisms  about  the  customer  always     being  right?  They’re  all  true.    Remember  the  guy  who  complained  about   the  food  on  Virgin  Air?  He’s  now  a  taster.   Stunt?  Yes.  But  effective  and  revealing!   37  
  • 38.  3.  Assess  the  user  experience  holistically    Traverse  the  customer  corridor.  Assess  the   total  experience  –  not  just  the  UI.    Find  the  sticky  points,  the  little  trapdoors.    Remember,  one  bad  touchpoint  affects  the   whole  brand.   38  
  • 39.  4.  Leverage  user  experience  design    Don’t  just  fix  the  little  user  experience   trapdoors  and  holes.      Assess  and  redesign  the  customer   touchpoints…  all  of  them.  Even  the  IVR.     39  
  • 40. Yeah,  but…  how  do  I  get  my   organization  to  do  this?     “Initiative”   40  
  • 41. Give  yourself  a  new  job:     “Change  agent”   UX “Initiative”   Easy  to  say…  harder  to  put  into  practice.   41  
  • 42. A  person  who  leads  a  business  initiative  by:     Defining  and  researching  the  problem     Planning  the  intervention     Building  business  support  for  the  intervention     Enlisting  others  to  help  drive  change   Isixsigma.com   UXmatters.com  –  “The  User  Experience  Practitioner  As  Change  Agent”   42  
  • 43. “Change  agents  must  have  the   conviction  to  state  the  facts   based  on  data,  even  if  the   consequences  are  associated   with  unpleasantness.”   Isixsigma.com   Uxmatters.com  –  “The  User  Experience  Practitioner  As  Change  Agent”   43  
  • 44. Successful  strategic  user   experience  is  not  just  about   delivering  a  design  or  testing   the  UI.   44  
  • 45. It’s  about  aligning  the   organization  to  measure  and   improve  the  user  experience…   Using  the  tools  and  techniques  of  user  research,   interaction  design,  and  usability  assessment.   45  
  • 46. If  you’re  doing  your  job  right,   you’re  changing  your   organization.   “Initiative”   46  
  • 47. Get  out  of  your  silo,  comfort  zone,  etc.   Be  nosy.  Really  understand  your  business’s  revenue  and   profitability  goals.  And  who’s  responsible  for  delivering   what  part  of  it.   Plan  and  influence     Advocate  for  planning  the  user  experience  of  the   product(s)  you  support.  Socialize  the  plan,  sell  the  plan.   Measure  and  improve   Measure  the  user  experience  to  know  how  to  improve  it.   47  
  • 48. You  might  not  get  to  focus  on  strategic  issues   yet.  But  start  thinking  about  it  now.     Start  talking  with  your  colleagues  about  the   long-­‐term  direction  of  the  products  and  services   you  support.   Find  the  problems  with  usability  testing  and   evaluation.  Fix  the  ugly  parts  now,  but  plan  to   overhaul  the  whole  experience.     48
