The Practitioner's Guide To User Experience Design

Luke Miller
Authors:
Luke Miller

The core mission of User Experience (UX) design is to craft digital experiences that not only empower but delight users, and we've never had a better set of tools for doing so. Not only is there strong demand in digital product development for people with UX skills, but technology is evolving so rapidly and in such interesting ways that the work affords constant opportunities to innovate and let your creativity run. But how do you get into UX Design? Do you have to know how to write code? Or do you need a degree in design? And what exactly is UX? Does it refer to the process or the result? In The Practitioner's Guide To User Experience Luke Miller answers all of these questions and draws on his own experience and examples of specific projects to walk you through the methods used by designers to craft user experiences. These include:*Techniques of user research, including conducting user interviews and surveys and creating personas to represent the range of users you're appealing to, as well as performing competitive analysis of rival products. *A core set of methods for crafting well designed routes of navigation through sites and apps, called user flows *Creating the layouts and designing the interface elements of pages, from initial sketching and creating a rough site map, through the drawing of more detailed page designs, generally called wireframes, and on to making moving prototypes. *User testing - everything from rough sketches to fully functioning prototypes to interpreting the results of tests and making recommendations for any changes to products. The best UX comes from learning by doing and understanding how creative, fun and satisfying the work can be. Adding UX expertise to your mix of skills will make you more marketable, a knowledge of UX principles and practices and will enrich your work in any part of digital product creation.

Making Conflict Work

Peter T. Coleman, Robert Ferguson
Authors:
Peter T. Coleman, Robert Ferguson

'Coleman and Ferguson have done something remarkable: they've written an evidence-based book on the complex topic of conflict and made it easy to read, easy to understand, and, best of all, easy to use. A genuine winner' Robert B. Cialdini, author of Influence: The Psychology of PersuasionA PRACTICAL GUIDE TO NAVIGATING WORKPLACE CONFLICTS Work conflict is risky. It can go bad and poison employee health, work relationships and organizational climates, or it can go well and help to energize problem solving, innovation and bottom-line effectiveness. Managing conflicts up and down the chain of command at work can be particularly treacherous, as power differences complicate conflicts and constrain response options. Organizations are rife with stories of executives and managers who abuse their power, employees who overstep their authority, and the resulting conflicts that get stuck in downward spirals. When people find themselves in conflict, they immediately become aware of the balance of power in the situation or relationship: 'Hey, you work for me, so back off!', or 'Wow, he is much bigger and drunker than I thought he was before I told him to shut up', so understanding how conflict and power affect each other is vital to effective conflict management.In Making Conflict Work, Peter Coleman and Robert Ferguson, leading experts in the field of conflict resolution, address the key role of power in workplace tension. Coleman and Ferguson explain how power dynamics function and provide step-by-step guidance to determining your standing in a conflict and identifying and applying the strategies that will lead to the best resolution. Drawing on the authors' years of research and consulting experience, Making Conflict Work offers seven new strategies and dozens of tactics for negotiating disputes at all levels of an organization. This powerful approach can turn workplace tensions into catalysts for creativity, innovation, and meaningful change.
