Talk:Personas for product development

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Can i just make some changes to this?[edit]

Hiya, what I'm thinking:

  • Clarifying why this is important to product development
  • Copy-editing the information a bit to provide a little more reasoning behind why it's important to product development design

That being said, definitely don't want to step on any toes, so do let me know. -Rdicerb (WMF) (talk) 22:23, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes! of course you can edit. It does need improvement. Please feel free. It was put up in kind of a rush. Thanks for being willing to contribute. --ARipstra (WMF) (talk) 20:17, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

We will be working on the personas more. First up is working with Communications team to create a consistent template for personas using illustrations rather than photographs. Using illustrations helps people who use personas that personas are not profiles of individuals, but archetypes of users with the same goals, motivations, challenges, etc. Also, I will be collaborating with WMF teams who build user facing functionality toward using theses personas as we build things. There have been questions about how to use them, so we will be coming to those answers together in the near future. Documentation of those conversations, or associated with those conversations will be posted here.
