Business analysis, functional design, and governance

Greetings,

Working with a project manager who's insisting that BAs - or people who analyze and document requirements - should not also be the same people who do functional design (which by the way 'doesn't exist' according to him - he's nothing if not opinionated) - something to do with a governance conflict. The issue seems to be that the same person should not do requirements and functional (ie solution) design, as this creates a conflict of interest or accountability.

Usability testing a build and supplementing it with paper mocks

I'm currently in the process of usability testing a build. The build
consists of a lot of functionality but some of those parts are not
connected to the main navigation. People can still access the
functionality but not from the correct places.

I'm considering providing the user tasks to complete and filling in
the missing flow pieces with paper mocks.

Examples of complex checkbox treeviews

We have a thick desktop app that uses a checkbox treeview to show data
layers that are available to display in a separate window. However,
although Checkboxes look nice and consistent in this display they are
the wrong control to use in some cases. A checkbox implies that more
than one data layer can be chosen, however some data layers are mutually
exclusive, others are not. On first pass it struck me that either the
checkboxes should only appear next to those data layers that are
inclusive and disappear when a mutually exclusive one is chosen.

Re: [IxDA] How to Engage Users Instantly When They Enter Your Website

Some excellent points, Eugene. I would take this a step further and say that it appears that the site is intentionally trying to be deceptive. I posted a comment to one of the articles asking to see the research that lead to the author's conclusions and, several weeks later, the comment has yet to be approved. I think the owner of the site either needs to post some legitimate contact and qualification info or take the site down. In the meantime, I think I'm going to start a website for physicians. "I'm not an actual doctor, but I play one of the web..."
