Estimation process for UX services by hours or by deliverables?

Hello community

Apologies if this is a thread that has existed already, however, I would like to get your input on this.

One thing that we have noticed with clients when they ask for estimates is that they ask the UX team to detail every single action for each activity we suggest to perform (for the proposal), and because of this, the billable hours/days start to pile up and then we ended up with a massive quotation.

The nature of the UX work is not as streamlined as the developers (or even designers) work where they have to write code following a set of directions and with an outcom

Persona Workshops

Hi all,

I was wondering if someone would have any ideas for running an
'interesting and entertaining' workshop where the client reps will
be involved in the process of creating personas.

Thanks a lot for any thoughts or ideas on that.

Cheers

Interview Questions for Persona Development

As part of an independent study project (U Texas iSchool student),
I'm developing personas to help guide the BBA site redesign efforts.
I have access to a wealth of demographic, survey and web analytics
information and also plan to speak to the undergraduate program
office about their perceptions of the site and its users.

Please send your advice about what questions to ask (undergraduate
business school students) when doing interviews for persona
development. I hope to tease out user goals and behaviors.

Joel Spolsky claims the "Program Manager" role does UI design... ????

"Lacking a program manager, your garden-variety super-smart programmer is
going to come up with a completely baffling user interface that makes
perfect sense IF YOU'RE A VULCAN (cf. git). The best programmers are
notoriously brilliant, and have some trouble imagining what it must be like
not to be able to memorize 16 one-letter command line arguments.

Tools for building a pattern library

What tool(s) did you use to set up your UI pattern library?

I know this question has been asked before*, but after repeated searches I'm not finding much of an answer. Seems there aren't any simple ways of doing this.

I'm currently using a mix of documents in collaboration with custom built (aka one-off) web-based solutions, but these aren't optimal for several reasons:
