Hi Marko, thank you sharing what you are interested in. The topic of searching using Google did not cross my mind and it sound intriguing. Will include it into consideration!
The topic question effectiveness is definitely in.
Will let you know how it goes :)
In my similarly long product design career I've seen more useless research than useful research. The reasons why the research was not helpful could be roughly categorized as:
I have to disagree here. A scenario describing a particular behavior typical for that segment of the target population that is represented by the persona should not be made up from the people's attributes. It should rather summarise an end-to-end process that revolves around the relevant action — the buying of a new tux here.
This is a really interesting opening thought for a discussion not only designers need to have. Why not only designers?
In my world, the User Stories (or job stories, or requirements) rarely come from a designer. And if they do come from a designer they have to get through other people…
Ah, dashboards. Their only sole purpose for existence is that they should provide a human being with insights that would then spark or motivate action. Most of those shown here just present nicely painted numbers. While useful in some context, it's the MINIMUM and putting more ink on the page / screen does not improve the usefulness.
