The Prescription

For New Companies and Companies with Unsatisfactory UX Processes

Wherever your enterprise is in its history and development it will benefit from planning the optimum integration of good UX practices into its processes. To determine that, these are some of the critical questions we'll be asking:

Problems with getting the most from UX usually appear in at least one of five places:

  • How does your company currently function?
  • What is its culture?
  • What do you do?
  • Where should UX live inside your corporate structure?
  • How can UX serve your product, service, and technology needs?

The UX Prescription examines your organization, your placement of UX within the organization, its integration, how it's defined and implemented, and where is it breaking down.

  • What are its lines of responsibility and reporting?
  • Who do you hire and how do you find them?
  • What do you call your UX positions?
  • What do these people do?
  • What should they do?

The Process

We will examine your existing or proposed corporate structure, interview executives and staff across the organization, and determine what they expect, what they are excited about, and what they are less than excited about. In addition, we investigate software and other tools currently available in your company with an eye to integrating and acquiring anything that may be needed.

Next, given your culture, we begin to define work to be done and benefits to be gained by a defined UX presence: What positions will need to be created, How to fill them, and How to fit define the practice and fit it into the existing processes. This becomes the plan for the next stage.

For the special, all these analyses and hiring plans will be at a very early stage of development, intended as the jumping off point for a full engagement.

The Deliverable

In most cases, you will receive a document that defines your current status and a preliminary plan for hiring, integration of UX staff and practices, and any areas that may need additional attention. Normally, this document will include:

  • - An analysis of what UX positions you need with job descriptions;
  • - A plan for how UX serves the various parts of the organization;
  • - A list of existing staff who know how to take advantage of UX;
  • - A plan for necessary software;
  • - A preliminary proposed process for the inclusion of UX in normal development and other processes.

When this study is finished, you will know what you need to develop an integrated UX process, ready to improve your ROI, and what team you need to put in place.
