How can one go about effectively communicating user experience design to their team? Marc Sasinski puts forth one method in his article, Experience Design Models. He walks through the example of an online service that pays household bills to demonstrate how to create an experience model.
This is an excellent example of how to turn user research into something actionable and easily understood by everyone on the team. I also like the clean and simple graphics used to get the point across in this example. These graphics take information that could very well be presented in a somewhat dry spreadsheet format, and make it visually engaging. This increases the chances of people actually reading the documents–as we all know, the first step to comprehension is reading the document.
