Appreciate the summary and your points. I personally enjoyed the evening. One thing related to one of your posints and your question and the panel regarding collaborative work: I think my point at the panel (which it seems I didn't get across clearly enough) was that user experience design is team work where "teams of people with complementary skills deliver ONE thing - "design" " - as you put it (and I understand design in a broad way, not just as a wireframe or mockup or visual design). I think you hit on what was my point exactly: teamwork and complimentary skills - but I also made a point of recognizing that there are many competencies involved in creating good design and good user experiences - and all need to be supported and nurtured in the best possible way (organizationally).
Thanks, Klaus. There was a whole thread of "who does this" that didn't necessarily get explored (but maybe it was enough) --- is this a discipline or a methodology or a practice (oh no, I'm getting into horrible semantics sorry)?Post a Comment
I have personal discomfort with research being talked about as only research, and I was glad to hear how you and other panelists really emphasized research as part of a process to accomplish the design of good experiences.
