Measuring Results

Selecting UI features based on results ...

"A couple of us on the UI team were having a conversation about the comments to yesterday's post. Someone pointed out that it appears we've discovered a community on the internet of people just as obsessed about UI as we are around here. :)

I wanted to build on yesterday's conversation by helping you to understand more about how we measure results.

When you boil it down, we have a pretty straightforward set of high-level goals for the Office 12 UI redesign. Help people use more of the functionality in Office. Help people create better-looking, richer documents. Save people time in doing the tasks they frequently do. Make sure people can be productive right away using the new version. Help normal people get results that only power users could get before. Give power users the a richer set of powerful tools to go beyond what was possible before. Stuff like that.

So, how do you know when a feature is right? There are so many tools at our disposal."   continued ...   (Via Jensen Harris)
