About the Presentation

The presentation will provide attendees with an introduction to the UX Health Check approach and its use as a tool for collaborative UX strategy and management.

The UX Health Check allows IA/UX professionals and their collaborators to introduce metrics of success and benchmarks to their product and service design decision-making, from the most strategic to the most tactical aspects.

Measures of success that qualify and quantify user experience efforts are scarce and not widely adopted. The UX Health Check approach introduces a common language to measure how direct investments in improving the user experience result in concrete outcomes.
