Design Centrado no Usuário (DCU) é o processo de design em que as necessidades, desejos e limitações do ser humano são levados em conta durante todas as fases de concepção e desenvolvimento de um projeto. DCU é focado na criação de produtos e serviços fáceis de usar e se baseia especialmente em pesquisa, prototipação, teste com usuários, nos princípios de design de interação e usabilidade. Empresas que são orientadas pelo Design Centrado no Usuário possuem a inovação em seu DNA e atuam de forma diferenciada em seus segmentos: CESAR, IDEO, Nokia, Intel, Philips, Apple, entre outras.

It's a topic I'm keely interested in. Having helped present From Design to Research at Agile '09, and having worked on this for many years, I still realize I have lots to learn.

Also, I am seeking input as to when to add these annotations.
