Silicon Valley (Almost) Friday Friday, May 13th

Hello everyone,

Due to various circumstances (the IA Redux this Friday and hosts being out
of town), we've pushed the First Friday back a week to May 13th.

(Almost) First Friday, user experience designer happy hour. Come whine,
network, exalt, indulge your trisadekaphobia and otherwise talk about UED
and the nature of existence.

UX Breakthrough - the AH-HA moment

Does anybody have any success stories to share about succesfully getting the company they work for to implement UX considerations into the development process and perhaps create a UX department that oversaw all of this?

Little bit of backstory:

I work for a small software development company (70-80 devs) that develops software for scientists in a niche market. We are growing very nicely. We have big communication issues but because "everything is fine", efforts to take UX more seriously are mostly ignored.

Getting access to users ensconsed within large companies

As part of the product I am designing now its important that I better
understand (talk to, shadow, function as...) a few different classes of
users as they exist in their "natural habitat": the large non-hi-tech

In my past experience I've always been able to use direct access to
prospective customers or lean on my personal connections to find
suitable people to talk to. Unfortunately because this product area is
very new for Red Hat, we don't have suitable business relationships that
I can leverage to get at "prospective users".

Newspaper company looking for a UX mentor

I work for the newspaper division of E.W. Scripps, and - due to an increased interest in user experience by the execs - our small UX team is tasked with defining the term as it relates to our business as well as defining a strategy for applying UX principles to existing products and new projects.

What a mouthful.
