    Chapter 4: Initiate: Starting a Mapping Project

    Mapping Experiences CoverOne of the most common questions I get in my workshops on mapping is, “How do I begin?” Aspiring mapmakers may see the immediate value in these techniques, yet they have barriers getting started.

    Getting stakeholder buy-in is a common challenge.

As a result, initiating an effort requires convincing them up front. Read More

    Leading UX transformation

    When your organization’s goal is to differentiate on the experience, you must start every product-development project by defining the experience that you want people to have with your product or service.

    Discovering Analog Tools

    From concept to execution, using hands-on tools throughout the UX design process can improve collaboration, communication, and the organization of your ideas in ways that digital tools cannot. For example, when kicking off a project, using simple sticky notes to post your ideas on a wall can offer huge benefits. In his book Change by Design, Tim Brown, CEO of the design and innovation company IDEO, recommends using sticky notes because they allow a group of people to agree on solutions when many possibilities exist. People bring their unique knowledge and expertise to the table, and using sticky notes lets you organize large amounts of information concisely, while keeping a meeting fun and interesting.
