UCD process diagrams

I know that somebody has posted UCD processes diagrams on the web but can't find in the archive where they are posted.

Any ideas?

Graphics to communicate usability process

In the latter half of my presentation "StUX - integrating IA deliverables in a software development methodology" for the IA Summit 2005, I showed several process diagrams with user-centered design elements in them.

To get an idea about the presentation and to download the PDF version of the slides, check out the blog posting about it here:

collaborative group structures

There is a lot of conversation about working collaboratively on this
board. Mostly regarding results and software to facilitate. I have
identified four basic structures for group work that I am intimately
familiar with. I am curious what people are participating in, and if
there are other derivations?

A) Group think
Multiple people in a group. Disciplines might vary. The group marches
forward in lock step... while there may be diverse opinions, the
group makes democratic decisions.

Agile & UCD (was Thoughts on Alan Cooper's Keynote)

Honestly, I was looking for something else when I came across this just now:

I thought it was pertinent because it is from a UX pro (IA) perspective and
is very relevant to the discussion here. (Also, interesting approach on the

Best sources for design process

Can anyone point me to what they consider the best sources
for information on design processes (i.e. how design integrates
with development and product mgt, req->des->dev, etc.)?

I've done quite a bit of work in this area but want to make sure I
haven't overlooked anything and also validate my current plans.

I'm particularly interested in processes for design dept. within
software organizations.

Best regards,

How to cope with missing process deliverables and scope creep

Hi all,

I am an interaction designer and at the moment I am working on a bit of a
strange project, process wise (or maybe not). Because of this I am walking
into a real problem.

The project was already started up when I joined. Practically this meant
that there was already a document written about the system to be build. It
is neatly labeled 'functional design' and contains several
(screen)flowcharts, user-role descriptions and fully designed screens.

So far so good you would say.

Software for requirements management

Hey there folks,

What are people using (especially for in-house types) for requirements
management throughout the entire product management lifecycle:
1. input channels and research capture
2. concept capture
3. requirements definition
4. design docs
5. technical docs
6. QC test scripts
7. launch, rollout, marketing plans

Something that deals w/ workflow and lifecycle management
Has strong permissioning
Well designed (something I would WANT to use)
Understands that software requires a designer (sheesh!)
works well on pc and mac

Agile User-Centered Design

Using [ID Discuss] Cooper Vs. Beck, as a springboard...

I'm in a development environment where an agile methodology is
being practiced. There is considerable interest in the
methodology; both in terms of how it differs from what was done
in the past, and can it be successful moving forward. The
company has relied in the past on outside agencies to provide a
user-centered design methodology.

The current project is kind of a blend of the two, agile and
ucd. However, the outside agency, the ucd practitioners are no
longer on the project and we've really just begun the pilot
