Most projects that I work on follow a 4-step UX process.
Some of the stages occur at the same time or out of order, and some stages are revisited AS NEEDED.
- Strategy Stage - (discovery) determine the problem that is being solved
- Research + Analysis Stage - discover the best method for solving the problem
- Design Stage - (Conceptual) Put research, strategy, and analysis into action
- Production + Optimization Stage - (detailed design + release) Produce real action items in the "real world" and continue to improve those products
I promise to keep the user in mind for each project - big & small - even non-UX projects. This is my way to make the world better - one small decision at a time.
