Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Contains contributions from the world's most respected researchers and practitioners in the field of human-computer interaction and software engineering. Presents the topic of scenarios in user-interface design with applications to many facets of the design process. Translates research results into practical techniques for superior user-interface design.

From the Back Cover

Growing out of a historic workshop sponsored by IBM, this book brings together contributions from many of the leading figures in the field of human-computer interaction and object-oriented software engineering. The first book-length work devoted entirely to the subject of use-oriented design representations—or scenarios—it discusses an array of scenario-based design approaches and demonstrates their practical applications across the system development life cycle, from requirements analysis and software design, to documentation, training, and prototype evaluation.

Translates the latest research findings into techniques that readers can immediately use to enhance the effectiveness of user-interface design and object-oriented software engineering design

Features contributions from the top names in the field, including Rebecca Wirfs-Brock, Ivar Jacobson, Jakob Nielsen, Tom Carey, Allan MacLean, Scott Robertson, Morten Kyng, Mary Beth Rosson, and others

Assesses the effectiveness of various scenario-based design approaches in dealing with a wide range of design problems and in different types and sizes of organizations

Packed with case studies and enlightening illustrations

Format: Hardcover
This book resulted from a think tank on the nature of use-oriented design representations and the part they play in the development of computer systems and applications. Enter scenario-based design. The book is made up of a number of essays - each with their own spin on the idea and their own examples of its application. While this makes the content a little hard to access, it also offers a rich resource and food-for-thought. Of particular interest to me was the relation of scenario-based design to object oriented design and HCI principles and practices. A must for serious designers who want to explore ways of creating systems that better serve users.

Format: Hardcover
The book is a good exploration of new way understanding user's experience. Many guru from HCI join to write the books such as Allan Maclean(his design rationale QOC). This book seems to be good but they are fail to understand what user's need. This is a representation of failure. Many authours try to take the technology based and change their title to scenario.
