Persona Research/Persona


This week I researched user personas on a couple sites thatgave out some really great steps on how to develop personas. One site broke down user personas into ten steps and can be seen in the diagram below.


Here are ten steps:
step:1 Finding the User
step:2 Building a Hypothesis
step:3 Verification
step:4 Find Patterns
step:5 Constructing Personas
-Body
-Psyche
-Background
-Emotions and Attitudes
-Personal Traits
step:6 Defining Situations
step:7 Validation and Buy In
step:8 Dissemination of Knowledge
step:9 Creating Scenarios
step: 10 Ongoing Development
