A session at Big Design Conference 2011

Friday 15th July, 2011

2:00pm to 3:00pm (CST)

After landing his plane in a river, Captain C.B. "Sully Sullenberger systematically went through a crash-landing checklist to ensure all of the passengers and crew escaped without injury. In 2010, the World Health Organization piloted a Surgical Checklist in eight hospitals around the world last year. This simple checklist cut deaths and complications by more than 33%. Checklists are powerful tools for porfessionals to use.

Developing UX checklists help you to take the worry out of critical tasks as design your websites and perform usability testing. You can spend time focusing on the important issues of your design because your checklist frees your mind from having to focus on mundane or critical issues. Imagine how more effective and effecient you can be. You will see several examples of UX checklists to help you plan, organize, and evaluate designs. In the end, these checklists will make your life easier.
