Take the time to reassess your spending on IT Systems upgrades and work with a UI design questionnaire that addresses shortfalls in addressing users' needs.
In my previous post I spoke about the 3 guiding principles outlined by Roman architect Vitruvius in his treatise on architecture, De Architectura that UI (user interface) designers should take into consideration.
Firmatis (Durability) - It should stand up robustly and remain in good condition.
Utilitas (Utility) - It should be useful and function well for the people using it.
Venustatis (Beauty) - It should delight people and raise their spirits.
Taking this a step further, I would like to outline the key questions that every UI designer should ask before starting work on any project. Over the years I have found that several companies ignore this key first step in the system design process. Often, the high-level decision-makers have a clear path and result they expect from the product/application and approach the UI designer more to design the look rather than the usability/functionality of the product.
It is critical to take the problem as statistics show how expensive it can be to ignore it and turn it around and start with the design process as the first stage of any project. The advantages of doing so are tremendous:
- Understand the main stakeholders and their requirements
- Get feedback that can be used to enhance your product
- Evaluate the ROI (return on investment) on specific functions included in the application
- Ensure a higher level of adoption by users as it fulfills their needs
Listed below are some questions outlined around these guiding principles for a more structured approach to the user interface design process.
“Each year, companies spend billions on upgrading IT Systems aimed at boosting revenue and improve efficiencies. However, all this falls short because they overlook the most important aspect in lieu of the chosen platform – ensuring their User Interface Design meets their user's needs.”
