"We are not problem solvers, we are problem definers...


I do not solve the problem I'm asked to solve, because it almost never is a real problem. The real problem is something else and if you can get and figure out what the real problem is, quite often the problem you have been asked to solve goes away..."

Don Norman - Living with Complexity
Good Software UX Design is about providing user with the right toolset. The instantly easy to use and well described workflow that allows him to perform everyday tasks in a pleasant, efficient way.

Great Software UX Design is about providing the user with ultra-efficient workflow and just enough assistance to allow him to master the UI on his own. Learning process should attract user and create an emotional bond between human and program. User should feel superb when using the product.
Lean UX in agile software development process – this is how it should be done.
