There once was a time that on Christmas eve that I’d be crawling round the pubs getting the worse for wear. Older and a maybe a little wiser; I’ve just committed a major fraud – I’ve downed the sherry, nibbled at the carrot and filled my daughters stockings with presents – Santa exists. Honest.
And now I can’t help myself. I check my mail and scan the blogs I subscribe to and I read something that makes me nod my head in agreement – Robert Hoekman laying into user centred design. He is so right – most projects don’t have the time for the luxury of doing user-centred design properly. That is not to say that it can’t be done. Thirty days to develop personas? How about thirty minutes? You can be agile and do user-centred design, at ThoughtWorks we do it all the time. I’m looking forward to his follow up posts.
