Creating a user persona in a lean development context

Awesome talk.

I’ll add some organised notes in there later.

Meanwhile just watch the talk.

(Speaker is Adrian Howard)

 

Just some quick notes while listening:

  • WAP used to be a thing. I forgot about that.
  • You are not the only one who produced made-up persona (you know, when you don’t talk to a customer before you do the persona – happens a lot especially when surrounded by the marketing folks)
  • There is actually a iterative way to build a persona and sort of update it as you go, and start to confront the assumptions with the reality (that’s the important part of this keynote – but you’ll have to watch it yourself for now).
