Here’s a list of 10 essential things to know about the SUPR-Q. 1. It’s derived from research and refined across studies. Instead

Your car doesn’t start on some mornings. Your computer crashes at the worst times. Your friend doesn’t show up to your dinner party. If something or someone isn’t reliable, it’s not only a pain but it makes your life less effective and less efficient. And what is true for people and products is true for measurement. The wording of items and the response options we

Benchmarking is an essential part of a plan to systematically improve the user experience. A regular benchmark study is a great way to show how design improvements may or may not be improving the user experience of websites and products. After you’ve decided you’re ready to conduct a benchmark, you’ll need to consider whether to conduct it internally within your company or outsource all or

With such wide usage across different industries, departments, and companies of various sizes, it’s no surprise many questions and controversies arise. Some are systemic—should the NPS be used as a key metric?—and some are trivial—should the NPS be treated as a percentage? In

Most UX designers I know didn’t get into the field because they have a passion for measuring. But even when numbers aren’t your motivation, at some point in your career you’ll likely need to provide evidence that a new design is actually better that a previous one.

There’s been a lot of buzz about design thinking. What it means, how to apply its principles, and even if it’s a new concept. While design thinking is usually applied to more scientific endeavors, scientific thinking can also benefit design. While it may be a less-trendy topic, a scientific approach to design is certainly effective. Scientific principles lead to better decision making about designs, which
