Software Usability in Practice

Texavi conducted a training workshop on Practical Software Usability at Steelwedge Software's office in Hyderabad. Steelwedge's team including product manager, technical leaders, business analysts, developers and designers participated in the 2-day intensive workshop. Also some sessions were attended by the pre-sales and sales support consultants, and QA engineers from Steelwedge.

Training Coverage

Focus of the session was practical user experience management in software product development. Participants learnt how various tools, techniques, and principles in usability engineering. These can be implemented to create a software product that not only works well, but also brings delight to its users and maximize value for all the stakeholders.

The workshop was extremely interactive drawing participants' interest and activity through examples from real life products, case studies from software development and also fun games to drive home the concepts and principles involved in the processes.

Takeaways for Participants

Participants learnt through role-plays and example-driven cases, the key activities in the Analysis phase comprising stakeholder interviews, user profiling, personae development, and user studies. We covered User-centered Design activities touching upon information architecture, wire-framing, prototyping and user interface design.

The 2-day workshop used ample examples and practice sessions throughout the sessions. It concluded with coverage of evaluation methodologies including usability testing, and heuristic evaluation. All through the session, participants got to work on live products from within their company. This helped them to contextualise the learning and apply directly and instantly to their work.
