The scenarios describe everyday situations, thus showing to what extent the application or site meets the current needs of users in the person’s image, what appeals to them, how they use it, why they continue to do it, and so on. Together, these two design tools allow you to design situations and their environment, in which someone uses your site. And this in turn helps to identify problems and opportunities that need attention. Continue reading
