What is UX Design?

What is UX Design?

UX Design is short for User Experience Design.

UX design is the way that a person feels when interacting with a system, service, or product. The name of the game with UX design is making the product functional and practical. You need to do this while maintaining a subtle but pleasing visual style. UX plays heavily upon cognitive psychology which dictates positive or negative reactions. While the term is new, the concept of UX has been around for decades. Many people feel that Walt Disney was one of the first UX designers because he was obsessed with the guest’s experience. However, Don Norman is credited with coining the term “user experience”. The term first appeared in Norman’s acclaimed book, The Design of Everyday Things, which was published in 1988.

Companies around the world have notched nearly a year of remote operations in their proverbial belts. With that experience behind them, employers and employees alike are all asking, “what now?”

Employees have enjoyed the benefits that come hand-in-hand with the remote experience. Including, increased flexibility and balanced schedules. They’ve also faced challenges like lack of infrastructure and poor connectivity, less than ideal ergonomics, isolation, and burnout.

4 Ways to Help Your Team Sprint Ahead with Strategic Leadership

Are you holding your team back by lack of strategic leadership? 

A few weeks ago, I published a series of articles about what I called “duct tape leadership.” It talks about fixes and patched-together solutions that project teams end up using. They use these solutions when their work is out of alignment with the organization’s priorities.

I suggested lots of things that team leaders can do to create more strategic alignment, lead more intentionally, and foster a team environment that’s more conducive to sustainable success.

But, the reality is that many of the challenges faced by project leaders come from gaps with strategic leadership. They have little to do with the size and complexity of their projects. That is to say, challenges have everything to do with the executive leaders and sponsors who decide which projects to pursue.

People want their children back in school, and also out of the house. They want to see people’s faces again and have conversations with people who are closer than six feet from them. But that doesn’t mean that they actually want to be back in the office. At least, not the way the office was before.”
