Defined by Deliverables

I know there are a few different perspectives on Interaction Design as a profession.  I work on the macro and micro level of user interactions as they relate to any given interactive system.

I recently had an interesting conversation with someone who is more of a usability or user experience consultant. Her focus is on the macro or hollistic levels of interactions.  She is also having difficulty sequeing into the agency arena.

Losing my project manager

My agency is losing a project manager and I was told he will not be replaced.  My role as a user experience designer normally has meant that I complete my deliverables and submit them to my project manager.  The void that will be left when my project manager leaves will now be filled by myself, the creative director and another person.  I need help with my new duties.

Design Thinking Portfolio

I am caught up in the NDA and out dated portolfio dilemma.  I am not able to show my best work or recent work because of non-disclosure agreements or the fact that things have been re-designed or are just not current.

I was wonerding if it would be acceptable to create new deliverables.  I do not have any paid mobile experience, so I wanted to start with that.

Are employer's more interested in the way I think, rather than what I have been paid to do in the past?

The NDA Barrier

I have really had this day with a recruiter, going back and forth regarding work samples.  I am relatively new to the UX field and I do not have the 5+ years of experience that so many job postings are requiring!

I only have a few deliverables that are not protected by a "non-disclosure agreement" or "not to be shown without specific written consent of <"blank">.  I understand I won't make any headway with this recruiter, though I am perplexed at her attempt to even try to understand my deliervable's, since it has been clear they are very foreign to her!

How to cope with missing process deliverables and scope creep

Hi all,

I am an interaction designer and at the moment I am working on a bit of a
strange project, process wise (or maybe not). Because of this I am walking
into a real problem.

The project was already started up when I joined. Practically this meant
that there was already a document written about the system to be build. It
is neatly labeled 'functional design' and contains several
(screen)flowcharts, user-role descriptions and fully designed screens.

So far so good you would say.

"Name" for product design document / deliverable

My team will be delivering a spec that includes the following sections:
Functional Description
Concept Map
Use Cases
Mockup / Prototype Screenshots
Interface Elements
Usability Best Practices
Standards Conformance
The general idea being that marketing delivers an MRD to design;
design deliver "the above" to architecture/development, etc.

So, what should "the above" be called?

I've had the following sugges

What software to create documentation and deliverables? What are you using?

Just a quick question to the other list members out there that's been
bugging me lately during my proposal writing, persona creation, page
description diagrams etc.

What software is everyone out there using to create documents for this
type of stuff? I'm still using ol' MS Word, but it just seems
inefficient, bloated, and unsuited for this type of work.

What's your favorite? What do you use it for?

Additionally, is there a nice repository of IxD/IA/Whatever materials
that are considered "best practice"?
