The Lost Art of Task Modelling, by Jesmond Allen, freelance UX consultant

Task models are a simple, yet incredibly powerful, design tool. I’ll talk about getting started with task modelling, and how a task model can influence design. I’ll include practical examples from the world of e-commerce and look at some common interface problems that can be attributed to poor task modelling. I’ll also look at the psychology behind task models and show why they matter so much to designing effective services and interaction flows.
