I was hired by the founders in 2017 to help shape the product strategy and UX for a new product that was in an early concept stage. My background in ergonomics and user experience gave me a unique perspective on the industry and the value offering in order to shape the product as it was developed and brought to market in Q2 of 2018.
What I did
Facilitated a session with the founders to focus on the specific problems and how we might deliver value. We used user story mapping to envision what an ideal workflow might be for our target audience and prioritized functionality based on desired outcomes, feasibility, and ability to address our original problem statement.
Collaboratively sketched concepts of what the core product offering could be based on the user story map and the known technical constraints. The sketches were converted into wireframes and were quickly made into a clickable prototype following several rounds of iterative improvements.
Supported the full-time designer that was hired and would eventually complete the visual and broader product design based on my early work.
Collaborated with the product creator of the Rapid Office Strain Assessment (ROSA), following it's acquisition, to streamline the task flow and improve the existing product experience. The redesign included improving interactions and updating the interface to align with the new style guide created by the MyAbilities UX designer.
I continue to work with MyAbilities in an advisory role.
