  1. Measuring the ROI for UX in an Enterprise Organization, Part 1

    February 6, 2018

    To stay relevant and avoid disruption through advances in technology or globalization, more and more organizations have embraced user-centered design and UX research methods. Thus, after years of fighting for a seat at the decision-making table, it is becoming more common for UX professionals to find one there. Still, executives often ask UX teams to quantify the value and return on investment (ROI) of their UX efforts.

Observing the adoption of User Experience in other large enterprises such as IBM, General Electric, Capital One, Honeywell, Philips, and JPL, they came to believe that user-centered design was an essential component of the innovation equation.

This kind of value is impossible to describe in purely quantitative terms.

    In this article, I’ll present a robust approach to measuring the digital impact of projects, using a framework that I developed: the Digital Impact Framework (DIF). The DIF can answer specific questions about a project’s impact. It is also a strategic tool that decision makers can use in planning and prioritizing the appropriate goals and objectives, which can actually generate the identified impacts. Read More

    In this edition of Ask UXmatters, our experts discuss whether they are seeing companies’ business models change from being engineering driven to being design driven. In addition, our experts explore what it means to be a design-driven organization and how all members of a product team can impact a product’s UX design.

    While some of our experts believe that we are seeing a shift to design-driven organizations, others on our expert panel think we’re actually observing a very different phenomenon.
