About the Presentation:

One of the most frustrating parts of any web project is the need to balance the ‘wants’ of the business with the ‘needs’ of your visitors. Depending on your internal dynamics, business desires can often override user experience to accomplish the needs of ego stroking, agenda setting and other senseless ‘requirements’. After having worked on many complex projects over the past 18 years, this session will explore the challenging dynamics between balancing internal pressures with common sense UX and teach practical approaches to avoid these situations before they occur, including:

  1. Collaborative activities that can be used to identify truly important business wants and needs and help prioritize appropriately.
  2. Techniques when running into internal stakeholder roadblocks, including using visitor perspectives and objective data to help convince the stubborn and enlighten those in the dark
  3. Increasing project success by learning to ‘teach while gathering’ during your requirements process
