comment What to do when process diagrams become too big?
Thanks. I think sub-processes might be the way to go.

comment What to do when process diagrams become too big?
Thanks for the suggestion, but writing JS isn't a core competence, so this will just add to the complexity of the deliverable.

comment What to do when process diagrams become too big?
@nightning - I'd love to be able to go analog with this, but our product and engineering people are spread across the globe. Also, this problem is more about the design of the information than of the format it takes.

@Yakke - I think this might be the essence of it.

comment How to talk about UX with using that label?
Thanks for your input, but I think you're missing the point. I will use the techniques you mentioned (and several others) in the education process. My question isn't about the need for education, or specific methodologies - it's about the use of a specific label.

comment How to talk about UX with using that label?
Thanks. I am engaging in a reeducation process, and the real meaning of UX will be part of that. I'll still be left with what I think is an inappropriate label. Sure, my org is smaller than "the world", but it's still hundreds of people. Sweating the details on the semantics is hardly dancing around.

comment How do you close a website for business?
What does it mean that the "site is closed"? How can a site be closed?

comment What are the barriers to developing a UX culture?
@JeromeR While that would be a nice addition, and would be more in line with the rules of the site, it's not necessary here. The point is to create a thinking framework that can be applied to different situations, and while the additional context provided by examples would be interesting to hear (for those points where that would actually add anything), requiring their addition only adds to the work required, and therefore makes it less likely that answerers will contribute.

comment What are the barriers to developing a UX culture?
@JeromeR That's fair enough, though I tend to disagree with a lot of the rules for this site. This question is a good example of what I mean. There's is undeniable value here. The answers provide a good thinking tool within the context of the question (i.e. a starting point for developing strategy) but the first and second comments were about how inappropriate the question is. Sometimes value comes in a format that doesn't fit neatly into boxes.

This is a fantastic answer. Thanks. I did a little editing and attempted some approximate categorization.

Also, the question specifically asks about obstacles in "your" company, not all companies. How can asking individuals about problems they have experienced directly be considered too broad?

comment What are the barriers to developing a UX culture?
And between us we can come up with a high level bullet list that captures the essence of the issues? I can't get my head around this site sometimes. Ask a question about why a traffic light is green and you'll have a thousand views and a dozen answers, but ask a question about the more complicated realities of actually working in the field of UX and you hear the crickets chirping. Essentially what I take from this is that people either don't have the experience to answer, or just cant be bothered.

comment What are the barriers to developing a UX culture?
@FrankL This isn't a "discussion" board, it's for Q&A, and I think this is a reasonable question to ask here. Your comment inspired me to edit the question so it's even more clear, though I disagree that the question is too broad. What are the barriers to developing a UX culture? This also isn't just a question about how to solve my specific problem, but is set up so answers can benefit future readers who are seeking to develop a UX strategy. You say one could write a book about it, but I'm not after a novel, I'll take your best three examples, or if you are particularly busy, your best one.

comment UX/UI Documentation
I think there's probably a lot of teams out there who are working on UX Design-related activities, who are still hook for delivering long spec docs and screens and screens of wireframes and mockups, because it's not their working practices that drive production, but rather those of their Engineering or Product Management department. UXD goes almost hand in glove with approaches like Agile, and Lean, but that's not worth much when you're working waterfall style on long projects.

@mc01 Good observation ; )

comment How to illustrate an “UX approved” stamp?
The "how" of the the stamp is a design question. How will the ideas be communicated. But the "what" of the stamp is arguably a UX question, and a very difficult one to boot. What are the core ideas that best represent the ethos and value of UX, on the limited canvas of stamp.

comment Should whitespace next to forms be avoided?
What evidence do you have that having lots of white space affects search performance? As the answer over on webmasters SE says, there is no reason why this should be the case. If your design looks out of balance, just have two columns of inputs.

comment What are the possible means for showing that a timer is running?
Perhaps with a small node that pulses at 1sec intervals.

comment Is it a good practices if I give helpful information about operating the search box to user?
thanks : ) but it's not my line. I heard it in a presentation at a conference, and I'm pretty sure that person didn't come up with it either ; )

UI is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it isn't very good.
