UI Designers

When a new product is in its early design stages or is just starting to be built, it is a great opportunity to throw in a discussion about user experience metrics and start thinking about what constitutes user experience success or failure. Metrics such as page views, number of active users, and revenue do not always give a clear picture about user experience success or failure. Although these metrics may be useful for consumer products, they are irrelevant for internal applications that users are forced to use. What are good metrics for products people must use? What is the process for identifying and implementing these user experience metrics? This talk uncovers a four-step model for implementing user experience metrics for a new Google product. This model is illustrated with real-world examples from a process that took place at Google throughout 2009.
