BA and Beyond 19 - Susanne Schmidt-Rauch - Deeper business analysis by user experience methods

When we received a future business process description using a conventional process diagram in order to represent an overview of the requirements for a financial advisory tool, we felt that business analysts did not want us - the user experience specialists - to start with "our" work.

We convinced them to use a series of 3 workshops implementing scenario-based development (tell the story of the process from the users' perspective) and a special design-studio technique (visually brainstorm on most difficult design challenges) to their project procedure.

The result was a more qualified future business process, a deeper understanding of the context of use and a tangible paper prototype, ready to be tested by and with users.
