In the beginning there was Donald A. Norman, дiти займаюца сексом he created the idea of user experience design. ByDon Norman was pretty vocal about how badly misunderstood the term had become.
Дiти займаюца сексом talks about it in this short YouTube video. Not even the originator of our field knows дiти займаюца сексом to call himself anymore.
De-obfuscating modern UX requires understanding the history of both design and development since the s. In its purest form, UX Design is waterfall based. A product team working through the waterfall methodology sets out to learn everything they possibly can before building even the simplest prototype. The requirements lock before design kicks off, and design locks before development kicks off. A classic UX process is usually taught to college students.
It goes like this:. The classic elements of UX Jesse James Garrett also follow a waterfall schema, building an execution from the bottom up based on well articulated requirements. The problem is that classic UX is fundamentally incompatible with agile.
Business, design, and development cycles worked like a Swiss timepiece; perfectly attuned to the release of a new Intel chipset. Дiти займаюца сексом created the first cell chipwhich stacked 8 microprocessor cores on a single wafer, and the damn thing actually worked it powered дiти займаюца сексом Playstation 2. Multi-core architecture changed everything.
What did break was waterfall. Almost overnight speed and flexibility replaced precision and predictability as competitive advantages. Companies turned en masse to another well established but underutilized development methodology: Agile focuses on rapid iteration.
It releases a new set of shippable increments features every weeks, evolving a product over time дiти займаюца сексом of all at once. In Agile there is no editing stage, there is no perfection.
As Bre Pettis put it in … done дiти займаюца сексом the дiти займаюца сексом of more. Classic UX operated on a waterfall cadence. In Agile nomenclature, UX became a blocker, and it was a bad one. Faced with an immovable block most teams simply abandoned UX. In its place they hired young graphic designers who were capable of turning out assets on a two-week cadence.
That was okay with product development teams.
The details, they figured, would work themselves out through iteration. Care to take a guess at what the Agile title for that type of designer was? To this дiти займаюца сексом, far too many businesses still think of UX as a visual discipline. In his seminal masterwork, Jeff turned the entire field of UX on its head.
While UX was now able to harmonize with an agile cadence, the lean model broke down if дiти займаюца сексом product was vaguely defined basically anything un-launched. Designers found themselves under immense pressure to fill a sprint backlog before they дiти займаюца сексом understood what they were building. As a result, a lot of development cycles got burned on features that never made it into the final product. In a mature product there is lots of user feedback coming in, which does wonderful job of driving the iterative cycle that powers Lean UX.
Nobody in their right mind would change a дiти займаюца сексом. On establishing teams, however, the user feedback cycle has yet to ignite itself. The waste and rework problem in those circumstances was serious enough that it often crippled the adoption дiти займаюца сексом Lean UX.
This presented a real conundrum for startups and skunkworks units that дiти займаюца сексом to ensure a strong UX component without reverting back to a waterfall cadence. Jake Knapp and Google Ventures came out of the sky like a bolt of lightning and solved the problem with the design sprint.
Nobody saw дiти займаюца сексом coming. The long dark night of UX was finally over. The design sprint has its roots in the IDEO дiти займаюца сексом centered design process, which is closely linked to Stanford and the d.
McKinsey authored a similar type of sprint using the same conceptual roots. The goal of a design sprint is to take all of the existing research about a problem, unpack its essence to a diverse дiти займаюца сексом, then ideate like crazy. The ideations are then funneled through the lenses of human centered design and those that survive are voted on by the team. Designers then build a low-fidelity prototype often in just one day that is just barely good enough to test on potential users. So now we come to the point of modern day UX methodology.
A production team is typically running on track two unless the backlog becomes poorly defined. If that happens, the problem is assessed and the team runs a design sprint. But where does that assessment come from if the production team is busy practicing Lean UX?
The most effective answer is to put a dedicated team on it. Every few months a fresh infusion of new insight will hit the production teams, filling their backlog with new ideas for experimentation. Дiти займаюца сексом the insight is big enough to trigger a design sprint, which significantly evolves a product vision. Most of the time, however, it just adds additional kindling to the fire of Lean UX experimentation.
So yes, dual track works best when a dedicated research team is working дiти займаюца сексом the scope of the active product group.
So what is a UX Designer in a dual-track world? A UX Designer is a leader, a process evangelist, a generator of insight, a purveyor of context, and a creative ideation machine. It has come to encompass dozens of job titles that have hundreds of their own deliverables though.
