comment What are the best icons for cancel, delete and close?
This is a graphic design question really as there's no other context or use case information provided in order to say whether one is more suitable for your situation than another, but I'd go for number 5 out of those options.

comment How exactly does good usability cut development time?
Yes, from what I gather looking at this QFD book briefly, I think it's essentially about taking a user centered design approach from the outset - something which perhaps is more prevalent now anyway than 20 years ago. As Wikipedia puts it: QFD is a “method to transform user demands into design quality, to deploy the functions forming quality, and to deploy methods for achieving the design quality into subsystems and component parts, and ultimately to specific elements of the manufacturing process". Catchy!

comment Appropriate icon for “change”
It may help to know what is changing in your context. A star typically means 'new' so it sounds like a good idea to change it.

@Prasun we have absolutely no context for your 'data' - are you talking about web forms?

comment What do you wish you had known before your first ever user evaluation workshop?
Yes - further to point four, having an idea what you are planning to do with the data you collect, and how, is a good thing to know beforehand. Sounds obvious...

What's the scenario that means you need to colorize 'good' data at all.
