At the Elbow: Understanding Users’ Perception of Process and Effort

Presented by:
Ulla de Stricker – Consultant, de Stricker Associates
Tuesday, October 2, 2007, 11 a.m. – noon Eastern / 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. Pacific
A key step in designing any user oriented service is recognizing the fact that people are careful investors of their time. When clients perceive a process to be too lengthy or cumbersome in relation to the benefit it produces, they will generally ignore it or seek an easier or faster alternative. Therefore, it is essential that we “sit at their elbows” to gain a detailed understanding of the activities they perform in their work and how they experience “us” (or not!). Whether we are constructing intranets or supporting research, we need to know when and where we ought to “pop up” to make them an offer they can’t refuse – because it meets an immediate requirement, because it is effortless, and because the investment of time pays off for them.
