The wrong users – update

OK…yesterday’s post wasn’t quite clear – you don’t usually get to choose your users.

I was talking about choosing the wrong users in research and representation. I don’t usually talk to every user of a system, but when I do research I choose a subset. If people don’t like my conclusions, the first thing they usually attack is my choice of representatives.

    I agree with J. Kaufman. If the story is worth telling, then make the PowerPoint presentation follow it. Don’t use the slides as a guide to your story, use the story to allow the audience to draw the necessary emphasis from the bullet points.
    That is how PowerPoint is supposed to be utilized!
