My primary focus was on business customers. I helped the stakeholders focus on this target group by extending personas with data from several sources such as marketing intelligence. I also lead several workshops with business stakeholders to create new personas and customer journeys. These helped create shared knowledge of the target group, as well as shared goals and starting points.
During a two-week business discovery sprint for new and improved online banking services for business customers I contributed visualisations of the core features.
Within online banking I created detailed designs and specifications for more than 10 features, each developed with different business stakeholders and development teams. These included features for loan inquiry, creditcard inquiry, cash deposits crediting, upload documents, authorisation management, authentication and linking accounting software.
Because I supported several business stakeholders and scrum teams at the same time, it was challenging to keep focus on the separate features. By careful time-management and time-boxing I was able to complete each project. By alternating between creating customer journeys and detailed specifications I managed to strike a balance between discovering possible future services with improving current services.
Prototyping for user testing
Extending the ING component and pattern library
ING developed a styleguide for interface patterns and components. I helped extend this styleguide and used it for making html prototypes. Since the components were new for the development scrum teams I helped them use it.
For two internal applications for bank employees I performed expert evaluations to help improve usability. For these evaluations I applied the heuristic evaluation method developed by Nielsen.
Some projects were handed-over to me and I carried through the design and implementation support, some project designs I had to hand-over myself, and some projects, my favorites, I was able to join at the start and the completion. The component and pattern library as well as the disciplined UX team organisation and processes allowed us designers to do the hand-overs smoothly.
