Too often we ask our bosses for permission to do good stuff like user research. I say stuff that – let’s ask our users instead! Continuous improvement doesn’t require a lab (as good as they are), long hours, and least of all, the good graces of the finance team. I’ll show you how a few key metrics and a couple of simple questions of users can provide you with enough insights to not only improve your product, but maybe, just maybe, convince management that this UX stuff is worth real investment.
Dan is digital strategist who has spent the last ten years in government, fighting the good fight for citizen-centred services. Currently, he spends his waking hours being the ‘go to’ for information architecture, content design, usability, accessibility, and analytics, at Consumer Affairs Victoria. He enjoys a love-hate relationship with government; loves being able to make a difference to people’s lives and delivering genuine public value; hates government silos and their pavlovian haste to hire expensive consultants to do work its own people can do better. His current passions are Government as a Platform, building in-house digital capability, and Deep Purple. Dan is living proof of the Gerry McGovern claim that if you love your customer, your organisation will hate you. Well, not all of it, hopefully.
