About the Presentation
The presentation will provide attendees with an introduction to the UX
Health Check approach and its use as a tool for collaborative UX
strategy and management.

The UX Health Check allows IA/UX professionals and their collaborators
to introduce metrics of success and benchmarks to their product and
service design decision-making, from the most strategic to the most
tactical aspects.

Measures of success that qualify and quantify user experience efforts
are scarce and not widely adopted. The UX Health Check approach
introduces a common language to measure how direct investments in
improving the user experience result in concrete outcomes.

Experience for Comcast Interactive Media where she designs media
