I have recently been exposed to the world of UX/UI and ID. I have been critic of the practice of spending too much time on documentation as compared to the development. However, I have now realized that these things are very very important for effective product and my understanding was totally wrong. I cannot piece the puzzle and feel that something is missing and hence I am seeking help here.
What I have already done
After reading the book About Face, I have decided to pursue a project and started to plan for it. Since the book focuses on the Goal-directed design approach, I am following it. I have done my research, interviewed people, and made personas.
What I need help with
Since I have all the personas ready, my questions are as follow
- How can I translate the persona into software functional documentation
- As User Goals are not product Features, how do you define product features based on goals?
- Once you have a feature list, what steps or processes do you undertake to convert features to development plans or milestones?
