Overview

As a follow-up to the successful Politics of Usability, this book deals with the ways in which HCI experts apply their knowledge within the pressured environment of the modern organisation. Quite apart from the need to provide a good usability service with little time or money, most HCI practitioners also have to deal with the day-to-day concerns of funding, budgets, project and people management, teamwork, communication and the promotion of HCI ideas. How to achieve this and still find new ways to make modern technology more usable is the central message of this book. The text offers a unique perspective on usability by concentrating on real situations and focuses on practical, workable approaches to professional duties rather than complicated systems of rules.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Reviews of the "Politics of Usability" by the same editors: "Designing quality web sites or easy-to-use software is simple: just employ established usability engineering methods. The only hard part is getting people to actually do so instead of basing the design on their own intuition. Luckily, the authors in this book know all the devious tricks that are necessary to get development organizations to do the right thing. Follow their advice and the usability of your products will double." —Dr Jakob Nielsen, Author of "Designing Web Usability"

"This well written book shows how to overcome many of the problems of putting research into the theories, methods and techniques of human computer interaction to work in commercial systems projects." —Computer Bulletin
