The Traceability of Research into Design

In a recent convo on Twitter, Janna DeVylder, Dave Malouf, Steve Baty and I were discoursing about the difficulties of traversing the Research > Design chasm. Some really great thoughts ensued. So, I thought I'd keep the convo going here.

It's a topic I'm keely interested in. Having helped present From Design to Research at Agile '09, and having worked on this for many years, I still realize I have lots to learn.

IxD / UID / UxD market in Singapore

Shop as guest. Proceed without loging in.

In recent usability testing of an e-commerce site in Sweden we confirmed the low motivation of signing up for an account. We worked on the problem and brainstormed a solution to “shop as a guest”.

One of the stakeholders is concerned about fraud and swindles, especially writing a wrong email address which we need for order confirmation. Some wrong person would get a confirmation about an order which he/she has not placed and contact the media about our uncontrolled customer data.

Any of you got advice or experience with this?

Thoughts on UXmap

A few months ago I was looking for a local design consultancy in Japan, and had trouble finding one. I thought it would have been great if design and UX-related information is organized geographically. I came up with UXmap.com and began providing local UX information about consultancies, labs, vendors, conferences, education, associations, events, and jobs. I can see how it supports needs of both design and UX people as well as their stakeholders. What do you think? Is there a need for this?

Is this the state of IA?

I started in information architecture in 2007, I got out of it and now I am trying to get back into IA/UX.  I consequently do not have the 5+ years of experience or the mandatory "senior titles", but I do have the education!  I came across this in a recent job posting:  "5+ years of agency experience working on site builds. Someone who really understands the user experience."  I was initially hired because I was a user experience professional.

Lately, I've broadened my typical podcast listening to include more UX and Web oriented podcasts. Some of these I'm REALLY digging and bring some lively conversations at work and are a great way to stay in the know with things, concepts and the industry.

Here's some of my favs:

UIE Brain Sparks (SpoolCast) -- Jared Spool's podcast.

How is your team structured?

I am dreaming of the perfect division of ia, ux, and visual design in a team. Should we stick to being generalists, and wear all of those hats at once, or should we allocate resources to each role? I am curious to know  how other companies have approached this.
