usability testing

I have been running a series of usability tests and I know I’m stating the obvious but you can’t underestimate the importance of them. I guess this is especially true for me who is the usability specialist that sits on the design team – of course I end up getting too close to the product.

I’ve tried not to get too close and remain objective. However, this has manifested itself in me being overly critical, where I was beginning to get seriously worried that we were way of the mark and with very little time to deliver, yet having the opportunity to run some tests this week with real end users has brought me back to a sense of realism.
