UCD politics

I’ve been talking with a friend recently about UCD, and thinking about it a lot. I started to worry – out of the 4 big applications/sites I’ve designed or contributed to recently, I only used a proper UCD process for one of them.

But then I remembered:

  • On one I was asked for assistance when the interface was finished and all of a sudden the content didn’t match it. There were only a few days until programming finished
  • On one, we had to design, build and test an app in 2 weeks – I only had 2 hours to do the design
  • On the last, the client was waiting for a change to be voted in, but we had to start the app early, so couldn’t show anyone what we were working on

So, with these politics, 1 out of 4 wasn’t bad.
