Requirement Analysis Brainstorming session Design Strategies Focus Group, User Research & Analysis Task Analysis usability testing Information Architecture & Style guides Wireframe Design Visual Design HTML / CSS development Design implementation Requirement gathering & analytics is a crucial stage for every product innovation in any organization. And in most organizations UX efforts are involved later to requirement gathering and UX specialist is limited to innovate features in the product as requirement Documented would be specific to business goals and data mapping with real time user task & needs would be unclear. What Do I Carry I specialize GAP ANALYTICAL SKILLS in Innovating features to real time users with my specialized research & analytical skills. Design Interactive sessions to understand & capture User Behavior with specific to context and mapping it accurately with business goals, Technology, trends, real time data and designing best user experience solutions. Leadership Quality Business Mapping and Design Thinking Abilities I look requirements in these aspect Functional Requirements, Technical Requirements, Operational Requirements, Transitional Requirements and how these could be mapped with UX view to define a matrix & strategy for implementation and the key stoppers. And how do I prioritize it in resolution board to keep kicking off ahead. I carry unique ability to facilitate new types of conversations as a fundamental driver of decision making with Agile style. This understanding, and the decision to ensure that teams have the support they needed.
Brainstorming with a group of people is a powerful technique to create new ideas, solve problems, clarify business needs, understand User background and to bring in innovative solutions. Brainstorming places a significant burden on the facilitator to manage the process, people's involvement and sensitivities, and then to manage the follow up actions. Use Brainstorming well and to see excellent results in improving the business goals, performance and user friendly concepts. What Do I Carry There are many ways in capturing data in the session to validate all are on the same page of understanding business requirements and Solution given is innovative and user acceptable. FOCUS Model A Simple, Efficient Problem-Solving Approach Capturing Data plays a vital Role. Communication Strategy, Oriented Decision-Making Model, Multi-Voting Choosing Fairly Between Many Options, Achieving Well Thought-Through Consensus Among Experts are the strategy expertise I bring in my practice. Requirement Analysis Brainstorming session Design Strategies Focus Group, User Research & Analysis Task Analysis usability testing Information Architecture & Style guides Wireframe Design Visual Design HTML / CSS development Design implementation Leadership Quality In this process leadership role plays a vital role to understand the teams core strengths & abilities and delegate work to the right hands to make sure Business goal and UX need is solutioned with right expertise & model. Bringing in technical, analytical and SME To one point of contact and facilitate the right context are my strengths.
Design strategy is a discipline which helps firms determine what to make and do, why do it and how to innovate contextually, both immediately and over the long term. This process involves the interplay between design and business strategy. While not always required, design strategy often uses social research methods to help ground the results and mitigate the risk of any course of action. The approach has proved useful for companies in a variety of strategic scenarios. What Do I Carry Design is a concept and strategy is matrix to achieve required quantitative and qualitative results. It redefines more of a process change how problems are approached, identifies opportunities for action, and helps deliver more complete and resilient solutions. Strategic design is about crafting decision-making. This works best when design is integrated into organizational Matrix, creating new opportunities for designers with a strategic aptitude. Expanding the practice of design beyond cultural affairs is what I excel with three core competencies Integration, Visualization & Stewardship to drive the success factor. Requirement Analysis Brainstorming session Design Strategies User Research & Analysis, User Flow Task Analysis usability testing Information Architecture & Style guides Wireframe Design Visual Design HTML / CSS development Design implementation Leadership Quality Design strategy is more into individual & management acceptance. How effective is the change and acceptability of the change defines a Strategy. Past many decades change is evident, acceptability is what driven success or failure to individual and organizational level. How smoothly changes can be made and accepted by most, is what the abilities I bring in a strategic design.
Analytics has traditionally been used to inform marketing strategy and tactics, but we now see more usability and user-experience professionals relying on this quantitative-data source to aid in research and design. The biggest issue with analytics is that it can very quickly become a distracting black hole of “interesting” data without any actionable insight. What Do I Carry In order to make the most of analytics data, As an UX professional I integrate the data where it can add value to qualitative processes instead of distract resources. Requirement Analysis Brainstorming session Design Strategies Focus Group, User Research & Analysis Task Analysis usability testing Information Architecture & Style guides Wireframe Design Visual Design HTML / CSS development Design implementation Leadership Quality Research and Analytics are my core areas of interest, where I look forward to continue my further PHd research on human psychology and Behavioral science. Working with various domains and user types, I understand users in a better way and as a tech savvy, I bring in more of systematic technology approaches to build system intelligence to understand user behavior and respond to their interest. Client Value Creation - Enabled by Business Analysis' - Business/Technology
Task analysis breaks down the constituent elements of a user's work flow, including actions and interactions, system response, and environmental context. What Do I Carry Breaking down functionalities into task and creating flow out of it is not only the task I do, but think beyond those boundaries and try to map multi level interactions to make reusable tasks and innovate on those grounds to add-on value added services into those flows. Requirement Analysis Brainstorming session Design Strategies Focus Group, User behavior research Task Analysis usability testing Information Architecture & Style guides Wireframe Design Visual Design HTML / CSS development Design implementation Leadership Quality Understanding competitive products and the complexity in the flows exist and revamp it to easy the work flow and drawing a clear Story line to make the team understand the context of user goals with improved techniques. Defining approaches of various tools having unique capabilities of user testing methods that showcase better user experience practice.
Usability testing is a technique used in user-centered interaction design to evaluate a product by testing it on users. This can be seen as an irreplaceable usability practice, since it gives direct input on how real users use the system. This is in contrast with usability inspection methods where experts use different methods to evaluate a user interface without involving users. Usability testing focuses on measuring a human-made product's capacity to meet its intended purpose. What Do I Carry In prior to early stage of design & development phase, I bring in various tool expertise that validate Human focus and Technology focus for testing Usability practice, in data capturing and evaluating methods to understand User view and their behavior with context to the system they interact with. Requirement Analysis Brainstorming session Design Strategies Focus Group, User behavior research Task Analysis Usability Testing Information Architecture & Style guides Wireframe Design Visual Design HTML / CSS development Design implementation Leadership Quality Usability testing is the practice to be looked at higher level of implementation for 100% success factor of a product design experience, Scalability and sustainability with respect to costing, profit making and future business expansion and retaining HAPPY CLIENTS. I add more value in this arena as I do continuous trend analyzation and trend setting with technical understanding to direct success path to the team and presenting quantitative measures to the higher management.
