Philips Research Book #8: Probing Experience: From Assessment of User Emotions and Behaviour to Development of Products Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book adheres to the vision that in the future compelling user experiences will be key differentiating benefits of products and services. It is the first book to combine academic and business viewpoints on measuring user experiences for product development. The book gathers authors from different backgrounds. This is a mosaic of their work, and that of Philips Research, in the assessment of user experience, covering the full range from academic research to commercial propositions.

Synopsis:

This book probes how we can probe user experiences. It combines academic research on user experiences with business propositions. It sets up a dialogue between what is done and known in the academic world and what is needed and envisioned in the area of business applications. To this end it brings together a range of distinguished authors from a broad range of fields, including psychophysiology, psychometrics and behaviour research, including university research and business strategy and development.
