Quantitative metrics are an under-used tool in most user experience efforts. In this presentation, you’ll learn how to turn metrics into an essential storytelling tool that demonstrates the wide-scale effect that better designs can have on your organization.

You’ll explore 4 different categories of UX metrics: UX Success metrics, Problem-Value metrics, Progress Reporting metrics, and Value Discovery metrics. These four types of metrics help you understand when your projects have met their intention, help you communicate your value to the organization, help you show how far along you are for complex projects, and help you identify innovative new opportunities for your designs.

You’ll learn how to avoid common mistakes teams make when choosing metrics and get tips on how to get a starter set of metrics. Jared will show you new ways UX design leaders are using metrics to drive a better understanding of how UX design delivers lasting value.
