comment Are hover states necessary?
I would also say that adding visual hover states on buttons gives the user positive feedback for his action or a sense of an mental award.

Yes, I'm thinking about processes rather than individual methods. I edited the question.

comment Navigation with or without sub-navigation?
Basically yes. As long as the labels are clear it's ok to mix and match.

comment Is user centered design only about hygiene factors?
@FrankL I tried to interpret Bennys statement about "user experience has nothing to do with the business plan" and making sure "new ideas and innovation works the way users expect" Therefore an agency need to document those ideas that the client have come up with and be sure that the user understand and likes them without adding new features.

comment Is user centered design only about hygiene factors?
I like your answer. I think the thing is how much a ux agency should own the tactics in order to solve the problem with attracting users to re-visit more often. That way UX isn't "only" about making the clients idea work. We should be a major part of creating ideas. This is what's being done in for example advertising. The client wouldn't approach an agency telling them about this great idea that only needs a good image and a nice headline. The client would explain what business problem that advertising should help him with.

I have a background in advertising. When the client has asked for our help with for example increasing brand loyalty we could have approached the problem with creating a online service that complement his products. An agency that focus on user centered design would ask the client what he thinks should be done and built something that meet those requirements (and being user friendly). Therefore an agency like that wouldn't come up with any new ideas and it would've to accept the clients level of expertise. The client should also know what he would expect to get in return.

Sounds legit. I have a discussion with a client and I want to show him some hard facts.

comment How to document user interviews
Oh, thanks for your answer. My question was more about user interviews in order to understand for examples the scenarios behind using a website than regular usability tests.

comment How to gather and weight stakeholder ideas
Yes, I'm talking about the client and people in the clients organisation that the web site will have an impact on such as the customer service division or the sales division. When I talk to those people about how the web site could help them they usually come up with a lot of content ideas and stuff that the think could be improved such as search. - Can I transform those ideas into business requirements instead?

comment How to group users into personas
Please do. But in your job portal example, we are seeing two personas? The job seeker and the administrator? You are telling me that the creation of the personas comes after the interviews but shouldn't I figure out before the interviews begins that the job portal will be targeted against job seekers and administrators? Otherwise I don't know who to interview right? So I have to start by picking out some high level target groups? And then interview them about the goals, needs, problems and thinking? If I see a one or two patterns during the interviews I know that I have one or two personas?
