Agile UCD Article; Usability Evaluation Webinar on 16 August at 16:30 London Time

I've written an article for Agile Record magazine on the issue that Agile methods and traditional requirements gathering fail to address usability and user experience. If your organization is adopting, or has adopted Agile you should find it useful. It's called User Requirements in the 21st Century.

I'll also be giving a talk along similar lines at UCD 2012 in London on Saturday 10 November.

Usability Evaluation Webinar

The Webinars are useful because they give great value and are convenient in bite size chunks. I can pass the most relevant information onto the team without everyone having to take a day off to go to a class presentation…

- George Harris, IT Director, Paperstone

One of the major shortcomings of functional testing is that we only establish that a system does what we said it was going to. For interactive systems, web sites and intranets what we really need to know is whether they meet the needs of users and what kind of user experience it provides.

In this session you will learn about a variety of usability evaluation methods including testing with users. The focus will be on low-cost/high-return (guerrilla!) approaches but we will also take short excursions into more advanced topics and tools.

Join the live webinar next Thursday (16 August) or download the recording if you can't make it. It covers:
•    Types of usability evaluation and their benefits
•    Testing with users
•    Usability labs and their alternatives
•    Reporting outcomes
•    Remote testing, A/B and multivariate testing

The cost of this session is €66 / £55 / $88 with a 5-for-the-price-of-4 discount available. See for full details.

Number 7 in the series, User-Centred IA with Card Sorting is scheduled for 30 Aug. See
