Product requirements docs for a UCD process

I'm an internal UX designer working with stakeholders to define our template
for communicating product requirements.

I am familiar with the Cooper and Berkun articles (and others) related to
documenting product design processes, but was hoping other might share
templates (or at least outlines) that have worked well in their
organizations...and that include for users, user goals, scenarios, etc.

Thanks a lot,

personas for an Intranet

Hi all,

I'm doing personas for an intranet portal. I haven't done a lot of these and
the client has never done it. I have identified four primary ways in which a
user would interact with the site and I want to do a persona for each. The
client however, wants to do a persona for every specific job role they have
in the company. We are going back and forth on this and I am having a hard
time articulating my argument. First of all, am I right? Second of all, if I
am right I'd be interested in some concrete examples that will help support
my argument.

Need help for Dashboard Design

Hello all,

I am designing a Dashboard for keeping track of trainings that users have to
go through. The dashboard has 4 modules. I am using red, yellow, and green
colored rounds to show status. Can I make the legend circles smaller so that
users focus more attention on the their staus circle? What do you think?

Moreover, if you can point me to some resources on Dashboard design that
would be great.

Throughout their days, people are engaging with complex information
to manage their lives.

And designers now realize that information isn't simply this stuff
you find -- the appropriate presentation of information helps people
make sense of the world around them.

IDEA (Information: Design, Experience, Access) is a conference
devoted to the design of complex information spaces, whether
physical, virtual, or procedural.

It will take place Oc
