Why do I talk about user experience? Because I truly believe good experiences can make the
world a better place.
In the Web 2.0 Expo Tim O’Reilly urged people to “work on stu! that matters”. I believe bad,
meaningless experiences just won’t cut it.

I want to talk about the experiences of everyone: consumers, customers, employees,
competitors… people. How people who interact with your product, service or your company
experience those interactions.

So, what is experience?
Experience is

     Subjective.                                     PERIOD.




First of all, experience is completely subjective.
Experience is

     small things

        Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


Experience is small things.
It’s a heart in my co!ee.
Experience is

     a great movie

         Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


It’s seeing a great movie.
Experience is

     a pleasant
     surprise
        Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


A pleasant surprise is an experience.
It’s receiving an unexpected letter.
Stu! that triggers your emotions.
Experience is

     a phone keypad
     you can feel
        Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


Experience is tactile feedback, a phone keypad you can feel.
(Unlike my iPhone.)
Experience is

     using your phone
     for creating art
        Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


Experience is finding unexpected uses for common objects. It’s stu! that triggers your mind.

Experience is

     memories

        Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


Experience is memories. This summer Club Unity, a club my friends have run for 12 years,
had an event on a small island in front of Helsinki. They took a photo of 400 party-goers on
the beach, then emailed the photo to each and every one. They made sure the night will not
be forgotten.
Experience is

     learning

         Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


Experience is learning new skills.
Experience is

    knowledge

        Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


Experience is knowledge. The capability to combine what you’ve learned in meaningful ways.
Experience is

     life

And experience is all this, accumulated over time.
It’s life experience.

Experience.
longevity


This idea of connected experiences underlines how important it is for product experiences to
have longevity. The Wii is built on the experience of shared play. The experience is designed
to last and grow better by time.
wow!


The rollout experience of Sony PS3 was designed to provide a great first impression by
wowing users with great specs and lists of features. I hear the games are not that great. How
long does the PS3 experience last?

       Can Experiences
       be designed?




        Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


If to design is to “plan something with a specific intention”, then yes, experiences can be
designed. You cannot create a blueprint for how an experience will unfold, but you can take
measures to maintain the intent of providing a certain kind of experience through all you
do.
User
        Experience design
        is a mindset



Experience design is more a mindset than a field of practice.
Experience design is not something you apply to a product, it’s how you create a product.
Everyone should work on creating the intended experiences. Together! Everyone not only can,
but will influence the experience of a company and their products. Everyone, from the
packaging warehouse to HR, not only the designers. Experiences are (or should be) part of
the company DNA.
management


Because everyone is involved, a company’s ability to create good experiences is a
management issue. You need managers who can make the hard decisions required to
enforce the intended experience materializes in the products.
human
    resources

And it is a human resources issue. Personnel issue. Human issue. You need great
communications and true leadership.
culture


It is a culture issue. Employees need an environment that supports and guides them in
creating the experiences the company wants to provide.
You need a clear vision shared by all employees.
You need to empower the employees to act towards the vision.
!     Vision
        !     Maintain intent


Experience Design is:
— creating a strong vision of intended experience
— creating the necessary practices to maintain the intent

Every time someone handles a product, uses a service, talks to someone at a company, they
have an encounter with the company. Every encounter is an experience moment and builds
the overall experience about the company and their products.
No active interaction is needed: If I see a McDonalds sign, I will have an encounter with the
McDonalds brand, and it will a!ect the image of McDonalds I have in my head.
Most encounters with companies are forgettable, but some are remembered. The question is,
how will you be remembered?
If you had taken this photo, you might remember it was Emirates airlines that provided you
with the memories of this breathtaking view.
It is most important to identify the encounters that form the experience you’re creating for
people. You can call these encounters touchpoints, experience moments, service moments,
interactions... depending on where you come from and what field you work in.
The next step is to link the encounters together, to understand the overall experience
you’re providing. Service designers talk about the customer journey, and what are the service
moments the customer goes through for a given service.
Hyundai in Finland has thought carefully about what is lacking in the Hyundai experience.
They figured people have a hard time justifying their choice, after they have made the
purchase. So, they actively provide the customers with rationale for choosing the brand.
Think of the full lifecycle of the product and all manifestations of the product and the
brand.
Be aware of your experiences: 1—What happened? 2—How did I react? What was my
subjective response? 3—Was the experience likely to be intentional/designed? 4—How does
this experience a!ect what I think of the provider of the experience (a company, for
instance)?
Be someone else. It takes great empathy to create a good experience. To create relevant
experiences, you have to Forget everything you know and design for others. Align with the
expected patience, level of interest, and depth of knowledge of your users. Talk in the users’
language.
Avoid sugar coating. If you think you’re helping yourself by putting lipstick on your product,
you’re setting up yourself for failure. You’re raising expectations, and you know you will fail
them. There are no shortcuts with experiences. Fix the problems, don’t hide them.
Think about design cues. Car manufacturers use design cues to maintain consistency in their
range of car models. Think how design cues could be applied to experiences provided by a
company. The idea, the intention remains, while the execution changes.
Virgin Atlantic doesn’t want to make their customer service sta! into service robots. They
want to make them into service experts. Providing the customer experience is not about
following a service manual to the letter, but making sure the customer has a good experience
every time.
I’ve already said this but: involve everyone. By getting everyone involved you will help make
sure the user expectations and the resulting experience are aligned. In practice, this could be
about making sure marketing and design and engineering are talking to each other.
experience
        design

Realize that anything, even the smallest detail can be “experience designed”. My parents love
movies. They have a dvd player/projector, which instead of a pause button has a “co!ee
pause” button. The button pauses the movie and fades the screen white, illuminating the
room.
Experience design can be a strategic question, too. The Apple experience is arguably very
integrated, but teleoperators now control areas of the iPhone experience, providing sales and
service; they control many of the encounters users will have with the iPhone. How does Apple
manage this?

How do you know you have created a good experience? How can you quantify the user
experience?
Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


It’s a bit like asking “how much in love are you?”
You know you are, but just how much?
no.                                                                yes!

You could create a poll asking quantifiable questions: is there enough holding hands? Does
he bring home flowers often enough? Is there enough quality time spent together? Is there
enough time spent… between the sheets? You can do this, but does it tell you how much in
love you are?

Despite this, here’s my model. It has two axes: context, or convenience on the horizontal
axis, and taste, or appeal on the vertical axis (things that draw you onto something). Imagine
a dot in the center, then start moving it around according to how you feel about an
experience.

The problem I see is that most companies view their e!orts like this:
Good enough experience means basic usability requirements are met, service exists, etc.
Perfection is the extra mail “we’re working on”, finishing details etc.
Perfection!

On the other hand, there’s a growing satisfaction with experiences. People are willing to
invest in experiences. And not only for Gehry designed hotels, but even the smallest
experiences which reduce e!ort.
Old people tell me that as people grow they find more things to worry about — it can almost

therefore are craved for. Trendwatching.com talks about “daily lubricants”.

The cost of creating good experiences vs. the cost of creating bad experences are almost

While you’re doing something, why not do it well?

    Research shows that there is a remarkably close correlation between good customer
    experiences and customer loyalty. The customers of companies who provide good
    experiences are more likely to buy again from the same provider, and more reluctant to
    switch over to competitors.
Good experiences win customers’ hearts. At most extreme cases, good experiences create
customers who love you. The advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi talk about lovemarks,
companies and products that transcend brands.
Experience
        Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com


Remarkable experiences leave a mark — whether the experience is remarkably good, or
remarkably bad. These memories are mind-share, essentially brand equity, the capital of
brands.
I have a dream…




I dream of a day when products fullfill my needs without a glitch, when I am being served
swiftly, compassionately and with understanding, by humans and computers alike. Not
because I’m a designer and I like good experiences but because good experiences make the
world a better place.
I have a dream…




Good experiences help us do more good. Good experiences help us feel better about what
we’re doing. Good experiences free us to spend more time on the important things and less
on the mundane. Don’t make another useless fully ajaxed web2.0 product. Make the future
better.
Thank you.

With customer experience receiving more attention than
ever before, we explore the impact on the bottom line.

The Value of User Experience (from Web 2.0 Expo Berlin 2008)

  • 1. User Experience Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com My name is Niko Nyman, and I’ve run a tiny company for 11 years. We do Rich Internet Application development. Meanwhile, I’ve co-written a book on social media and marketing, in Finnish. You can read more about me on my blog: http://www.nnyman.com/personal/ about/
  • 2. User Experience Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com Why do I talk about user experience? Because I truly believe good experiences can make the world a better place. In the Web 2.0 Expo Tim O’Reilly urged people to “work on stu! that matters”. I believe bad, meaningless experiences just won’t cut it.
  • 3. Simply Experience Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com I want to talk about the experiences of everyone: consumers, customers, employees, competitors… people. How people who interact with your product, service or your company experience those interactions.
  • 4. 1. What Experience 2. Experience design 3. Thinking about Experience 4. Evaluating Experiences 5. Value of Experience
  • 5. ence is Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com So, what is experience?
  • 6. Experience is Subjective. PERIOD. First of all, experience is completely subjective.
  • 7. Experience is small things Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com Experience is small things. It’s a heart in my co!ee.
  • 8. Experience is a great movie Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com It’s seeing a great movie.
  • 9. Experience is a pleasant surprise Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com A pleasant surprise is an experience. It’s receiving an unexpected letter. Stu! that triggers your emotions.
  • 10. Experience is a phone keypad you can feel Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com Experience is tactile feedback, a phone keypad you can feel. (Unlike my iPhone.)
  • 11. Experience is using your phone for creating art Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com Experience is finding unexpected uses for common objects. It’s stu! that triggers your mind. (This is a long exposure shot of drawing images in the air with the flashlight of the previously shown cheap Nokia phone.)
  • 12. Experience is BIG things Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com
  • 13. Experience is memories Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com Experience is memories. This summer Club Unity, a club my friends have run for 12 years, had an event on a small island in front of Helsinki. They took a photo of 400 party-goers on the beach, then emailed the photo to each and every one. They made sure the night will not be forgotten.
  • 14. Experience is learning Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com Experience is learning new skills.
  • 15. Experience is knowledge Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com Experience is knowledge. The capability to combine what you’ve learned in meaningful ways.
  • 16. Experience is life experience Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com And experience is all this, accumulated over time. It’s life experience.
  • 17. disconnected moments The small moments you remember become more interesting and more memorable when you see the connections between those experience moments.
  • 18. disdis connected moments The small moments you remember become more interesting and more memorable when you see the connections between those experience moments.
  • 19. Experience A stream of disconnected, separate experiences, become a whole, continuously evolving Experience.
  • 20. longevity This idea of connected experiences underlines how important it is for product experiences to have longevity. The Wii is built on the experience of shared play. The experience is designed to last and grow better by time.
  • 21. wow! The rollout experience of Sony PS3 was designed to provide a great first impression by wowing users with great specs and lists of features. I hear the games are not that great. How long does the PS3 experience last?

  • 23. small details …is reinforced by the small details.
  • 24. Apple store in San Francisco by tanakawho on Flickr Can Experiences be designed? Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com If to design is to “plan something with a specific intention”, then yes, experiences can be designed. You cannot create a blueprint for how an experience will unfold, but you can take measures to maintain the intent of providing a certain kind of experience through all you do.
  • 25. User Experience design is a mindset Experience design is more a mindset than a field of practice. Experience design is not something you apply to a product, it’s how you create a product.
  • 26. Everyone should work on creating the intended experiences. Together! Everyone not only can, but will influence the experience of a company and their products. Everyone, from the packaging warehouse to HR, not only the designers. Experiences are (or should be) part of the company DNA.
  • 27. management Because everyone is involved, a company’s ability to create good experiences is a management issue. You need managers who can make the hard decisions required to enforce the intended experience materializes in the products.
  • 28. human resources And it is a human resources issue. Personnel issue. Human issue. You need great communications and true leadership.
  • 29. culture It is a culture issue. Employees need an environment that supports and guides them in creating the experiences the company wants to provide. You need a clear vision shared by all employees. You need to empower the employees to act towards the vision.
  • 30. ! Vision ! Maintain intent Experience Design is: — creating a strong vision of intended experience — creating the necessary practices to maintain the intent
  • 32. Mortality & User Experience - Slide (12) by ario j on Flickr Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com Every time someone handles a product, uses a service, talks to someone at a company, they have an encounter with the company. Every encounter is an experience moment and builds the overall experience about the company and their products.
  • 33. No active interaction is needed: If I see a McDonalds sign, I will have an encounter with the McDonalds brand, and it will a!ect the image of McDonalds I have in my head.
  • 34. Most encounters with companies are forgettable, but some are remembered. The question is, how will you be remembered? If you had taken this photo, you might remember it was Emirates airlines that provided you with the memories of this breathtaking view.
  • 35. It is most important to identify the encounters that form the experience you’re creating for people. You can call these encounters touchpoints, experience moments, service moments, interactions... depending on where you come from and what field you work in.
  • 36. The next step is to link the encounters together, to understand the overall experience you’re providing. Service designers talk about the customer journey, and what are the service moments the customer goes through for a given service.
  • 37. Hyundai in Finland has thought carefully about what is lacking in the Hyundai experience. They figured people have a hard time justifying their choice, after they have made the purchase. So, they actively provide the customers with rationale for choosing the brand.
  • 38. Think of the full lifecycle of the product and all manifestations of the product and the brand.
  • 39. Be aware of your experiences: 1—What happened? 2—How did I react? What was my subjective response? 3—Was the experience likely to be intentional/designed? 4—How does this experience a!ect what I think of the provider of the experience (a company, for instance)?
  • 40. Be someone else. It takes great empathy to create a good experience. To create relevant experiences, you have to Forget everything you know and design for others. Align with the expected patience, level of interest, and depth of knowledge of your users. Talk in the users’ language.
  • 41. Avoid sugar coating. If you think you’re helping yourself by putting lipstick on your product, you’re setting up yourself for failure. You’re raising expectations, and you know you will fail them. There are no shortcuts with experiences. Fix the problems, don’t hide them.
  • 42. Think about design cues. Car manufacturers use design cues to maintain consistency in their range of car models. Think how design cues could be applied to experiences provided by a company. The idea, the intention remains, while the execution changes.
  • 43. Virgin Atlantic doesn’t want to make their customer service sta! into service robots. They want to make them into service experts. Providing the customer experience is not about following a service manual to the letter, but making sure the customer has a good experience every time.
  • 44. I’ve already said this but: involve everyone. By getting everyone involved you will help make sure the user expectations and the resulting experience are aligned. In practice, this could be about making sure marketing and design and engineering are talking to each other.
  • 45. experience design Realize that anything, even the smallest detail can be “experience designed”. My parents love movies. They have a dvd player/projector, which instead of a pause button has a “co!ee pause” button. The button pauses the movie and fades the screen white, illuminating the room.
  • 46. Experience design can be a strategic question, too. The Apple experience is arguably very integrated, but teleoperators now control areas of the iPhone experience, providing sales and service; they control many of the encounters users will have with the iPhone. How does Apple manage this?
  • 47. Apple store in San Francisco by tanakawho on Flickr Evaluating Experiences Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com How do you know you have created a good experience? How can you quantify the user experience?
  • 48. Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com It’s a bit like asking “how much in love are you?” You know you are, but just how much?
  • 49. no. yes! -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 Oct 21, 2008 N. Nyman Oy niko@nnyman.com You could create a poll asking quantifiable questions: is there enough holding hands? Does he bring home flowers often enough? Is there enough quality time spent together? Is there enough time spent… between the sheets? You can do this, but does it tell you how much in love you are?
  • 50. Context / convenience INCONVENIENT CONVENIENT ATTRACTIVE GOOD EXPERIENCE Taste GOOD ENOUGH / appeal EXPERIENCE UNATTRACTIVE BAD EXPERIENCE Despite this, here’s my model.

  • 69. INCONVENIENT ATTRACTIVENESS ATTRACTIVE UNATTRACTIVE BAD EXPERIENC Not designed vs. designed. Hire a big name designer. People buy plain co!ee mugs because they have been designed by someone whose name they know. Who cares? Most people do! We’re drawn to “design”.
  • 70. INCONVENIENT ATTRACTIVENESS ATTRACTIVE UNATTRACTIVE BAD EXPERIENC Get the right people to use it. If Burberry doesn’t know what to do when the wrong people start using it, neither do I.
  • 71. INCONVENIENT ATTRACTIVENESS ATTRACTIVE UNATTRACTIVE BAD EXPERIENC Bad reputation vs. Good reputation. Do everything you can to maintain your reputation. These are two Finnish banks.

  • 75. INCONVENIENT Tested and ATTRACTIVE true UNATTRACTIVE Never heard BAD EXPERIENC Let people know others use and enjoy your services too. A product you’ve never heard of cannot have a bad reputation for you, but neither a good one. We tend to trust tested and true products.

  • 92. Perfection! Good experience The problem I see is that most companies view their e!orts like this: Good enough experience means basic usability requirements are met, service exists, etc. Perfection is the extra mail “we’re working on”, finishing details etc.
