HASH(0x8e2b8210) von 5 Sternen Great Resource..If You're Part Of The Target Audience 26. September 2013
Von Alan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book's title is what caught my attention and after reading it.....I think the title is prefect. Through this book, Leah is giving UX designers, both aspiring and existing, techniques and the motivation to
bring focus to the role of a UX Designer, as well as strategies on how to convince an organization that the role of UX should exist.

This book definitely has an audience and if you're part of that audience, it's a great resource; so, it's important to know who the book is not for. This book isn't as valuable for those who are already experienced UX designers and / or work in an organization which already has UX processes in place. Another situation where this material would not be helpful would be with start ups or organizations who have a more contemporary product design philosophy, e.g. anything 'Lean'. This has to do with how much the book relies on generating deliverables....lots of them. Deliverables make total sense when you're trying to convince others that UX should be taken seriously and / or if you're working in an organization which has disconnected team members. Again, if you're in situation where progress is measured by how many charts, graphs and wireframes are created - then this book is perfect for you.

Besides being very well structured and having great 'If You Only Do One Thing...' summaries, the work throughly covers situations and gives strategies on how to be successful in navigating them. Have trouble getting buy in from the boss that UX is important? ... not sure if you should be freelance or not?...dealing with an organization filled with doubters of UX's value? This book has you covered... and then some.

The '...and then some' is what leads to a kink in the book which holds it back from being invaluable from end to end. There are parts of the book where the author mixes Product Management with UX design. For example, it's not the place of the UX designer to create a 'Project Brief' or a product's 'Elevator Pitch' for the team to use. Caution should be taken in implementing these 'managerial' processes because you will likely either step on someone else's toes or take on a lot of work that a UX Designer shouldn't be doing.

If you find yourself within the target audience, aspiring UX Designers or those struggling to validate UX within an organization, the book is a great resource.

HASH(0x8e2b8264) von 5 Sternen Applied UX at work 1. August 2013
Von justdan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Leah Buley's "The User Experience Team of One" fills the void in current UX literature, which glosses over the challenges that UX professionals face in a fledgling UX practice.

There are two parts to the book - philosophy and practice. Philosophy serves as a short and informative primer for beginning UX pros. Practice makes up the bulk of the book and is composed of 27 UX "recipes" that you can use at various stages of a project. You won't find exhaustive coverage of each method here - that's not the point. Instead Leah takes the traditional deliverable-heavy UX techniques and distills them into key components sharing tips on how to use them in the real world. I also liked how each method had a brief section on how to apply them remotely. Let's face it for those of us working in large organizations - we're not all in the same building.

Saying "constraints largely come in the form of other people" Leah cuts right to the heart of the problem. Frequently it's not UX work that's the challenge - it's getting that crucial buy-in. While the title suggests a "Team of One" Leah's theme throughout the book is collaboration. By immersing folks into the process from the beginning you build support for your work over the course of the project. But even if that's not enough there's a dedicated chapter on UX evangelism.

So if you're newly minted UX professional and you're joining an organization with a growing UX practice - buy it. If you have experience and even if you're not a team of one - I still recommend you take a look due to the book's fresh perspective and practical focus.

In the end, The User Experience Team of One serves as a UX catalyst giving you tools to get started while arming you with tips to overcome the inevitable barriers in building a UX practice at your company.

HASH(0x8e2b869c) von 5 Sternen Not recommended for beginners, but probably useful as a quick reference 21. November 2013
Von Bhargava - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
You know, this book might be accessible for someone who wants to "quickly get into UX", but then I think that's what gives the profession a bad name. The descriptions of UX methods in this book are shallow, and would be seen as pretentious by the business and technical people you address - guaranteed.

Books like these, that promote "craftwork" and "expressiveness" as opposed to skill building and holistic awareness can only harm the people who read them. The complete absence of case studies is baffling.

For anyone who is actually interested in the process, Cooper's "About face" is a much more comprehensive book, although it is a bit of a slog.

** After reading the comment below I realised I was a bit harsh with the rating, and I've updated it to two stars. This book seems to be a good companion for anyone who already knows UX and is into "self-help" type books, which I'm not. However, for anyone starting out, my (lack of)recommendation still remains the same, and I've tried to explain why in a comment below.**

HASH(0x8e2b8684) von 5 Sternen Great addition for any UX shelf 21. Dezember 2013
Von Andy Shuping - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Review copy provided by O'Reilly Press

There are plenty of books on user experience, heck there are probably 5 more being written right now. So why should you read Leah Buley's "The User Experience Team of One?" Not only is this a well written book, but Leah also fills a current void in the UX literature, which is some of the challenges that someone might face trying to start a UX program at their POW. Leah not only answers addresses this challenge, but also provides a solid framework of how to construct a plan, gain support from your colleagues, and how to show management that this is a worthwhile pursuit.

This book is dived up into two primary sections: philosophy and practice. The philosophy section is relatively short and provides a solid foundation for those just beginning to work with UX. This section walks us through the history of UX (tracing it back to the 18th century), the theory and philosophy of UX, and how to grow your career within the UX field.

The primary bulk of the book however, is devoted to putting UX into practice. Leah walks through some basic tools of the UX trade. While none of them are covered in depth, it does give a good basic understanding of how a tool works, such as the different types of surveys that might be conducted. What is even more important to me however, is that Leah doesn't just focus on UX as being a webdesign only tool. Instead she offers tips and advice that can be used for any project, including redesigning an office space or even just the layout of computers. She also offers good practical advice on how to administer these tips and tricks remotely, which is important if you're part of a larger company or offering your services to clients in different states.

As I mentioned above, Leah offers good advice on how to get buy in from the rest of the organization, which is often the biggest challenge in the UX world. She offers great advice on how to explain UX and immerse folks in the process from the beginning to help build support.

If you're interested in UX or already involved in the field, this is a good resource to have handy. While some of what's offered might be old hat to seasoned professionals, I'm willing to bet that Leah offers some new ideas to put into practice. I give the book 4 out of 5 stars, and it definitely has a place on my shelf.

HASH(0x8e2b8b4c) von 5 Sternen Great resource for wannabe UX designers! 2. November 2013
Von Nora Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I mean "wannabe" in the best possible way...This book is perfect for web and interface designers, developers, project managers who feel drawn to UX design -- anyone who knows deep down they need to be designing from a user-centric point of view and needs to bring the rest of the team a long.

The book can be read cover to cover, or dipped into as-needed to grab useful methods. For each method the author describes the best context to use it in, what the process is, how long it should take, etc. The methods are generally informal, and are sometimes lighter-weight versions of methods that might be used in larger organizations with well-established UX processes (such as "proto-personas" rather than fully-formed user personas).

One shortcoming of this book is the lack of methods related to information architecture. I expected to see card sorting or card sorting "lite" or something to help plan navigation and information hierarchy.

Besides that omission though, this is an excellent resource, which I plan to rely on heavily in my first UX design project.

Please look up my full review on the Web Designers' Review of Books if you're interested.
