In a discussion with Leisa, we talk about the current challenges facing the Twitter design team, which are mostly around getting bigger and more international and trying to keep everyone moving in the same direction. Also some talk of agile, sketching and presenting design.
In my first video for FinalFinal I'm talking about collaborative analysis of usability test data. This is a technique I've started using recently with my team. It's been great for engaging the team in usability tests, identifying and prioritising issues and coming up with design ideas. We work in a very Agile way and release regularly (every two weeks). I was finding I struggled to find the time to analyse data from usability testing quickly enough, and feedback recommendations and design changes to the developers before the next sprint. Since using this technique, we've been able implement feedback from usability tests and release improvements to our users much more quickly. I started using this technique after coming across these slides by Danah Chisnell. This article on the KJ Technique from UIE is also really useful. Do you use this technique? Do let me know how it has worked for your team!
My first weeknotes video! This week involved competitor analysis, dev team support and work on a big redesign project - which included many meetings, working with stakeholders & sketching. I also ran an agile retrospective which is something I enjoy doing outside of my UX role.
A brief explanation of a mixture of project management techniques Sophie and I used for a new Lanyrd feature. The combination worked very well. Near the end of the build we had migrated to GitHub issues for the more finely grained fixes and modifications, but for the initial build (post rough product design) this was very effective.
