The latest episode of our podcast "Software for People" is about the product development process in software projects. It's easy to lose sight of important aspects of a healthy software project in the course of day-to-day work. We have created a UX checklist with the most important points for your project. In this episode, we guide you step by step through the most important steps. As often mentioned, user-centered processes are very important for developing good products. But what exactly are user-centered processes and how can I check whether my project is well positioned in this respect? Click here to go directly to our checklist.
The checklist covers the following areas:
1. concrete problem solving
Do I develop for users from the beginning and start from the problem or do I already start with a solution that I think is right despite the lack of validation?
2. reality checks
Do I regularly check my results on the go with users? Is this regularity implemented and not overlooked? Or do you save yourself the reality check?
So, your project is up and running, but what do the individual steps look like...
3. iterative approach
Are there interim results that stand on their own and already fulfill functions? And: are they checked for common design and UX principles? Or do I only have the big end result in mind?
And now it's getting tricky and a bit personal ...
4. mindset & basis for design decisions
Are my decisions data-driven and? Or do I decide according to feeling and gusto, and do I often use the argument "We've always done it this way." ?
Now one level higher, beyond the specific project ...
5. anchoring, sharing and increasing knowledge
Is the knowledge you generate in the UX design process accessible to the entire company and do all team members have the freedom to use the existing knowledge to prototype ideas? Or is the knowledge in silos?
And another pro for our checklist: If you want to fulfill the requirements of ISO 9241:210 or SO 9241:110, this checklist is exactly what you need. Have fun and good luck checking your project! Click here to go directly to our checklist.
