A bimonthly event in Sheffield where we invite speakers from around the country to come and talk about their experiences in research and design projects. 

 

 

ABOUT THE NEXT EVENT

"Five users will find 85% of the usability problems" - and other myths about usability testing

Usability testing is by far the most widely used usability method. Nonetheless, it’s often conducted with poor or unsystematic methodology and thus doesn't always live up to its full potential. Rolf Molich will lead an interactive and lively discussion about a number of controversial beliefs about usability evaluation and discuss if they are truths or myths.

 

 

ABOUT THE SPEAKER.

Rolf Molich

Rolf Molich is one of the pioneers of usability. He has worked in the field since 1984 and together with Jakob Nielsen created the method of heuristic evaluation.

Rolf owns and manages DialogDesign, a Danish usability consultancy that he founded in 1993. He conceived and coordinated the Comparative Usability Evaluation studies in which more than 100 professional usability teams tested or reviewed the same applications. 

Rolf was a principal investigator in the Nielsen Norman Group’s large-scale usability test of 20 US e-commerce websites, involving more than 60 users. He has worked with usability since 1984 and wrote the best-selling Danish book User Friendly Computer Systems, of which roughly 30,000 copies have been sold. The book is now available in English, with the title Usable Web Design. 

Rolf has helped to develop the CPUX certification program and has been involved in drafting of the curriculum.
