Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

People are beginning to demand a higher standard of user experience (UX) quality from the software systems they use in their business and personal lives, and companies are looking to UX to help drive business value and increase brand strength. Effective UI provides a complete roadmap to building groundbreaking software centered on UX quality, including how to generate management support, employing product management strategies proven to deliver greater success, and how to manage the design, engineering, staffing, and business considerations that must be centered on the user's needs and working effectively in tandem all throughout the project.

With a focus on UX, software can exceed expectations by:

  • Accounting for how people work with, think about, and consume information.
  • Establishing richer means of collaboration and communication
  • Reducing frustration by streamlining complex tasks and creating more intuitive processes.
  • Generating more engaging and interactive experiences between consumers and businesses, or between businesspeople and their information systems.
  • Powerfully differentiating products, services, and brands to create a competitive advantage.

For business and product managers trying to get innovative products funded and successfully built, for software professionals struggling to advance the cause of better UX, and for anyone else who needs to effectively advocate for and deliver on the promise of higher quality software, Effective UI is a comprehensive, valuable resource.

Synopsis:

People expect effortless, engaging interaction with desktop and web applications, but producing software that generates enjoyable user experiences is much harder than many companies anticipate. With Effective UI, you'll learn proven user-experience strategies that will satisfy your clients and customers, drive business value, and increase brand strength.

This book shows you how to capture the collaborative and cooperative spirit among designers, engineers, and management required for building engaging software. You'll also learn valuable methods for maintaining focus throughout the process — whether you're a product manager who needs a clear roadmap, a developer or designer looking for guidance and advocacy, or a businessperson who wants to understand and manage user-experience software initiatives.

Learn how to build software that will:

  • Generate engaging and interactive experiences between consumers and businesses, or between businesspeople and their information systems
  • Account for how people work with, think about, and consume information
  • Establish a richer means of collaboration and communication
  • Reduce frustration by streamlining complex tasks and creating processes that are more intuitive
  • Distinguish products, services, and brands to create a competitive advantage
  • Create scalable systems that adapt to changing user needs and behaviors
