  • Tom Auger: Scoping and Budgeting Projects with Usage Modeling

    Tom Auger: Scoping and Budgeting Projects with Usage Modeling

    WordCamp Toronto 2015Speaker: Tom Auger

    January 17, 2016 — In the field of Information Architecture (IA) and User Experience Design (UX), there is a practice known as Usage Modeling, which maps user scenarios and stories to business priorities. This technique has been traditionally employed in software development to help define the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) for first candidate release.

    In this session, you will learn how the Usage Modeling process can be applied to your or your clients’ website and mobile projects to:

    – put the end-user first
    – prioritize features
    – scope out functionality you thought was important (but isn’t)
    – determine an appropriate budget for the project

    The format of this session is unique: part lecture, part hands-on simulation of an actual Usage Modeling Workshop in the boardroom so you can experience the methodology first-hand with a seasoned facilitator.

    If you are considering a large web project for yourself or your organisation, or if you often quote on web work for clients, then this session is not to be missed!

  • Kirsten Schelper: Buzzword Information Architecture

    Kirsten Schelper: Buzzword Information Architecture

    WordCamp Cologne 2015Speaker: Kirsten Schelper

    June 30, 2015 — Für mittelgroße und größere Webprojekte ist eine solide Planung sehr wichtig. Für kleine Projekte auch. Im Alltagsgeschäft geht dieser Aspekt oft unter, die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Kunde, Designer und Coder verläuft improvisiert bis chaotisch. Irgendwer macht irgendwann ein Strukturdiagramm, der Designer entwirft etwas Hübsches und der Coder schraubt es zusammen. Kurz vor Launch kommt der Kunde mit seinen Inhalten.

    Das kann gut gehen. In der Regel führt dieser Ablauf aber zu jeder Menge Missverständnissen und Wiederholungsschleifen. Kunde, Designer und Coder sind gestresst, Kosten laufen auf und die Zeit wird knapp.

    In ihrer Präsentation spricht Kirsten darüber, welche Schritte notwendig sind, um mit den Herausforderungen zurechtzukommen, denen wir täglich bei der Planung von Web-Projekten begegnen.
