  21. 21. What  does  the  word  “Lean  UX”  mean  to  you?
  22. 22. “Lean  UX”  implies  that  less  UX  is  being  done. That  couldn’t  be  further  from  the  truth,  nor   is  it  something  we  should  encourage. Source:  ArAcle  from  Whitney  Hess,  Feb  27,  2011  -­‐  Why  I  detest  the  term  “Lean  UX”

  34. 34. Create half a product, not a half-assed product!
  35. 35. How  Lean  UX  may  work  well? 1. You are composed of small, goal-driven, cross-functional teams 2. Features begin as hypotheses to be tested before heavy investment 3. A feature starts as a minimum valuable feature, and then iterates 4. Proof carries more weight than opinion 5. The team talks to real customers on a regular basis, including in-person How  Lean  UX  may  not  work  well?     1. If your stakeholders requires formality to justify decisions 2. If you need to deal with legacy systems and require regular updates

  39. 39. “How  do  you  come  about  building  this  app  in  the  Qirst  place?” “I  Qind  it  frustrated  or  inefQicient  to  do  certain  things,  I  believe  I  can  solve   the  problem  better  through  my  idea.  I’m  the  best  user  after  all,  isn’t  it?” “Great,  so  who  else  have  you  validated  your  ideas  with?” “Myself,  ...  and  a  couple  of  my  friends,  they  said  the  idea  is  cool!” “Err.....  you  mean  everyone  else  behaves  exactly  like  you???”
  40. 40. “I  have  built  a  list  of  great  features  but  I  (or  my  investor)   feel  that  the  user  experience  is  not  good” “In  what  way  you  Qind  the  user   experience  is  not  good?” Why the UX of my app is not good? “The  UI  is  not  sleek  enough,  I  need  to  make  it  more  beautiful  and  attractive   -­  perhaps  by  adding  a  couple  of  nice  icons  here  and  there...” “I  see,  your  de9inition  of  good  user  experience  =  better  user  interface,   no  wonder  the  user  experience  of  your  app  sucks...”
