Requirements-Driven Software Development Must Die

Monday, July 25th, 2011

The process by which most enterprise software is developed is fatally flawed. There are flaws in any software development process, but in the past 13 years I’ve seen one approach produce more bad software and blow more budgets than any other: r

equirements-driven software development. Thankfully, I’ve also had the opportunity to see the success of an alternative type of process, a process in which user experience design drives what gets developed. This type of process helps teams deliver good software on time and within their budgets.

How Usability Testing Adds Value to Accessibility Evaluations

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Whenever I am presented with steps on how to conduct an accessibility evaluation, user testing with real users is always listed as a step. What I rarely see is information on why testing is so important, what the benefits from testing real users are, and what you get by testing with real users that you can’t get by using accessibility tools

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

p>This month marked another milestone in game show history. On February 14-16, Jeopardy! champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter defended their trivial supremacy against Watson, a computer program created by IBM. Drawing on vast stores of

information and a complex algorithm for selecting the most probable answer, Watson all but ran the board on its way to a $1 million prize for IBM, which the company pledged to donate to charity. Yet the hype around Watson’s

The Key to the Hover Craft: An Axure Expedition

Hover interactions are everywhere. Netflix shows you movie details when you point at the DVD image. Google’s image search results shows you a magnified thumbnail, filename, and dimensions. Yahoo! News displays the first sentence of a news article

when you point at a headline.

Hover overlays can add a lot of value when used judiciously, but they have their pitfalls. One factor that can make or break a hover is timing. If you’ve ever tried to read a page containing contextual advertising pop-ups, you’ve probably been irritated by how hard it is to avoid them—they’re on a hair trigger. A short delay between the time the user

points at the trigger object and the appearance of the extra information helps avoid accidental triggering and ensuing rage.

Evantage Consulting is about 75% female. I know a lot of women personally who work in technology, and yet I still see that the majority of the “experts” in our field are male. Of all the technology conferences I have attended, there have always

been more men than women attendees and presenters. I’m not entirely sure why this is. There are two sides to this debate: whether women submit for conferences or whether conferences don’t do a good enough job of recruiting women to speak. I recently attending a one day conference for women in technology, and it was interesting what bubbled up to the surface on why women don’t submit or why women submissions aren’t selected. (more…)

I used to consider failing as something to avoid at all costs. But occasionally something went wrong and I spent loads of time trying to figure out what I could do differently in the future. After years of beating myself up, I’ve come to appreciate failure. I learn something new and often it can open new avenues of creativity. This article includes a few ways to embrace failure. (more…)

A Few of My Favorite Things About Axure

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Working on a clickable prototype in the last couple of weeks I am reminded again of how much I can do in Axure that I couldn’t do in Visio. User Experience Design is all about context and while I know I got a lot of great information using pap

er prototypes, there is another layer of learning I’ve achieved by allowing these users to personalize their experience using a clickable prototype based on where they navigate and what they enter and displaying that information back to them. (more…)
