My company is considering where UX is placed. I found a number of articles on the topic, and have read Institutionalizing Usability by HFI's founder (and I was employed by HFI in 2008-2009). I'd like to discuss how companies of 2,000-10,000 employees organize user experience:
- Title and role of senior-most UX officer
- Distribution of resources (single cost center vs. matrix)
- UX team make-up and organization
- Key benefits and challenges
If you know of articles, blogs, or slideshares, please post them here too.
I'm always taking screenshots of cool website interactions or designs when I browse around and put them into a 'design ideas/inspirations' folder on my computer. I was wondering, for you designers that do something similar, how do you go about organizing your clippings?
Just starting a discussion if anyone can help me define an comprehensive UX or IxD organization process flow. Any input on this discussion would be gladly appreciated. Problem came about because working with other deparments while implementing UX has been not been operating smoothly. Is there any sites or other resources where I can get more information about a process flow from kickoff all the way to launch stating which departments handle certain type of deliverables and requirements but focusing more from a UX POV.
I'm in the midst of a project and I'd appreciate it if I can get your contributions to help me. I am in the midst of writing about what makes IxDA special and I thought there is no better way to tell the tale then by collecting the stories from its members.
