9780123706089: User-Centered Design Stories: Real-World UCD Case Studies (Interactive Technologies)

Intended for both the student and the practitioner, this is the first user-centered design casebook. It follows the Harvard Case study method, where the reader is placed in the role of the decision-maker in a real-life professional situation. In this book, the reader is asked to perform analysis of dozens of UCD work situations and propose solutions for the problem set. The problems posed in the cases cover a wide variety of key tasks and issues facing practitioners today, including those that are related to organizational/managerial topics, UCD methods and processes, and technical/ project issues. The benefit of the casebook and its organization is that it offers the new practitioner (as well as experienced practitioners working in new settings) the valuable practice in decision-making that one cannot get by reading a book or attending a seminar. This is the first User-Centered Design Casebook, with cases covering the key tasks and issues facing UCD practitioners today. Each chapter is based on real world cases with complex problems, giving readers as close to a real-world experience as possible. It offers the things you don't learn in school, such as innovative and hybrid solutions that were actually used on the problems discussed.

Product Description:

A design casebook in which the reader is asked to perform analysis of dozens of UCD work situations and propose solutions for the problem set. It contains problems that cover a variety of key tasks and issues facing practitioners, including those that are related to organizational/managerial topics, and UCD methods and processes.

Review:

As interaction design practitioners at all levels change jobs and get promoted, there are many new situtations to face--many of which even a seasoned professional may not have encountered. Because with UCD there is often no one correct answer, there is a complexity with tradeoffs and solutions that require critical thinking and the application of the existing knowledge base. This book addresses this need by its method of eliciting the kind of critical thinking required, and will give readers the kind of experience they can only otherwise get with lots of time on the job.
