What is UX? Or How We’re Learning to Build the Right Thing, The Right Way

December 1, 2010

In my spare time at ThoughtWorks I’ve been refining a deck that I’ve presented a few times now that attempted to explain what UX is, using the metaphor of building a house.

In this version I was presenting to a technical audience so I added some discussions about the practical UX techniques and activities to explain how we work.

What is UX? Or How We’re Learning to Build the Right Thing, The Right Way

It also builds on the ‘slogan’ that has taken some traction at ThoughtWorks – Building the Right Thing, the Right Way.

i.e. Agile is the right way to build something, and a sound UX practice means that you building the right thing.

True to my roots, it’s done with post-its notes. Originally I did present the actual post-it notes on flip charts, but alas I had to digitise it eventually for portability reasons.
