“Empathy FTW” with Bruce Johnson
February 3, 2016
At FullStory and from years before that at Google, it’s clear that great product design isn’t magic; it is an endless process of launching and iterating. I like to call it the Suck Less Cycle. But how do you know what to change about your product as you iterate? Can analytics tell you? Maybe A/B testing? Research, and my own experience helping Google AdWords succeed and Google Wave fail, points in the opposite direction. Put the numbers aside! Focusing on the individual experiences of real users in a real setting activates a designer’s most powerful tool: genuine empathy.
Bruce is co-founder and COO of FullStory in Atlanta. Before that, he was Site Director for Google’s Atlanta office.
