How do I get the full potential out of UX Design?

If you bring UX into the project early enough, then UX can develop the highest potential. How do you do that?

Use UX not only for usability!

Important for you: UX is not just a way to improve the usability of your product. If you have a feature list that covers really good and useful features - fine, UX will help you to realize the features in a really user-centric, faster and cheaper way. But we usually see the problem much earlier: and that's with the feature list itself. How did it come about? Who created it? And most importantly, how did he or she create it? Did anyone really check whether these features are useful and solve the core problem? Often the answer is "no".

Involve UX early enough!

Product developers need to realize the potential of UX much earlier, before it comes to usability, but when it comes to user experience. When it comes to making product decisions. And we've certainly expressed this in all the podcast episodes: UX helps make the right decisions, based on a scientific foundation. And that happens before a feature set is defined. So: don't make the mistake of building what users say they want, or what management thinks users want. Instead: Use UX to find out what users really need.
