Creating User-Centered Organizations Through Rapid Usability Testing
Few will argue the benefits of usability testing, but regardless if you are a seasoned UX professional or new to the field, traditional usability testing can be extremely time consuming. Often times many will completely skip testing because the friction is so high. In my talk, I will share the lessons I learned from when I introduced a low-friction and light-weight testing framework to my colleagues at Fastly, a company that powers over 10% of all internet traffic. This new approach increased our usability testing frequency by 4x in 8 months, gave teams greater insights into their products, and gained greater adoption of the testing process throughout the organization.
