Identifying Stakeholder Requirements

Here’s my take on a key first step in the development of any
functional spec – the identification of stakeholder requirements.

Let's start by defining the term 'stakeholder'. A stakeholder can
be anyone who has an interest in the successful completion of a
project. This may include the individual(s) authorizing the project
as well as the folks who will actually be using the application. Once
you have identified the stakeholders, at a minimum, you'll need to
get answers to the following questions:

UX Roadmaps

I manage a small UX team within the Product department of a .com. As
part of the overall company strategy each department leader has been
tasked with creating a (gulp) 5 year road map of their respective
departments. I'm not a business school grad and have only seen road
maps and have never created one. Has anyone out there done such a
thing for a UX group and if so do you have any advice or resources
that might help me out.

I would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks,
Chip

Interaction Design Career Path

Hi all.... I can't remember whether there was a conversation about career
paths in our realm, so I thought I would start one. Currently I am a senior
IxDer and starting to plot out my career path. Would love to hear from
those who were in my shoes before that made the transition to the next step.
I'm curious as to not only your personal view on the career path, but the
employers' view on career paths in this realm too.
TIA,
David

Strategic Interaction Design

I'm starting a revision of my book Designing for Interaction.

<http://www.designingforinteraction.com>

In the second edition, I'd like to include a chapter on Strategy, that
is: how to decide WHAT should be designed and WHY.

So when I ask, what should interaction designers know about strategy?
You respond...

How can I get the best out of a UX discovery workshop

I'm starting on a project in the New Year where the client has
arranged a 3 hour UX discovery meeting with 20 stakeholders right at
the beginning of the project before I've had any real time to do my
own research.

The client's objectives for the meeting are to define the personas
and user journeys and the first draft of the structure for the site.

After the meeting I will have an opportunity to conduct one-on-one
interviews.

The project itself is to develop a fairly laborious offline
application process into a streamlined online process.

Interested in HTML Prototyping? Start here.

Hi there,

If you're interested in prototyping in HTML (because, you know, it's the way of the future, and you don't want to get left behind), but don't know where to start, I just wrote a post that you should find helpful:

The Four-Minute* (HTML) Prototype

It shows you how to prototype a web page easily and quickly. And the best bit? You don't need any prior knowledge of HTML or CSS.

Hope you enjoy it,

Martin

It sucks to be a Jr. Interaction Designer/Jr. Usability Specialist/ Jr. User Experience Designer

For those graduating in 2008 (When the crisis started), 2009 (when the crisis was at the peek) and 2010 (when almost every 4th is unemployed in Malmö and Copenhagen Area), it really sucked/sucks to be a user centered designer. NO FREAKING JOBS! I was lucky enough to get hired as a technical writer with emphasis on usability....this was my first career job and I learned alot. Its just sad that it lasted for 13 months only.... My employer had to let 35 employees go. I was one of them.
