UX Process

use checklists as a backbone for the process and tie the deliverables http://johnnyholland.org/2011/05/checklist-thinking-for-ux-professionals-retaining-your-sanity-in-a-complex-project/

for our creativity to really deliver a solution, our deliverables cannot stand alone; they must work together as a related set of checklists. “Checklist thinking” makes the complex, enterprise-wide digital systems we work on much more manageable

UX Research

Communicating research findings http://www.uxmatters.com/mt/archives/2012/02/communicating-user-research-findings.php

On interviews: Since there are usually multiple stakeholders involved in a project, be sure to talk to all of them. Interview them relentlessly. Ask the dumb questions. Be persistent. A bad assumption will cause you more work in the end, whereas a dumb question wastes a few minutes of time at most.

Questions to ask to yourself before launching a new product http://www.svpg.com/assessing-product-opportunities/

Assessing Product Opportunities In many companies, it just comes down from above that we really need to do this product. In other companies, the marketing organization determines what products are needed. Often the process of deciding whether or not to build a product is left to intuition It is generally a good idea to look before you leap. The challenge is to do this in a quick, lightweight, yet effective manner. Ask product managers to answer ten fundamental questions: Exactly what problem will this solve? (value proposition) For whom do we solve that problem? (target market) How big is the opportunity? (market size) What alternatives are out there? (competitive landscape) Why are we best suited to pursue this? (our differentiator) Why now? (market window) How will we get this product to market? (go-to-market strategy) How will we measure success/make money from this product? (metrics/revenue strategy) What factors are critical to success? (solution requirements) Given the above, what’s the recommendation? (go or no-go) Ask most product managers what problem their product is intended to solve, and you usually get a rambling list of features and capabilities, rather than the a crisp, clear and compelling statement of exactly the problem that’s solved. Dont forget to present the opportuniy assessment to discuss it with other people. So what do you do if the CEO tells you that this is what we’re doing, so just get to work on the product? First, realize that there are sometimes strategic reasons for doing a product, so you might need to pursue a product even when it’s unlikely to succeed in the market. That said, I have found that doing this lightweight, quick product opportunity assessment is still valuable in that I become much better informed about what this product involves. It is possible that what you learn will change your CEO’s opinion, but more likely it is a good opportunity, and your CEO was right to want to pursue it, but at least now you know what you’re up against if you are to succeed.
