Hi All,

I want to do two things to strengthen the UI design choices being made here. I 
haven't seen anyone tackling these so far? These activities should provide 
both structure and more objective & specific evidence:
Collate all the (Agile*) themes, epics and user stories we have for LO. (or 
the nearest analog we have for these.)
Develop some scenarios, based on the user stories and run users of various 
different usage profiles  through these, using either a verbal protocol** (or 
retrospectives, if appropriate)
My expectation is that the body of user stories will allow us to be more 
confident about usability coverage (and implementation and documentation). It 
can be made more complete over time and the user stories themselves can be 
validated with users, so we are even more confident that we've got the right 
The scenario walk throughs...
with existing UI will highlight deficiencies
with prototypes will verify designs and 
with updated implementation demonstrate that the user story was accurate and 
has been addressed sufficiently well.
If anyone, with usability experience wants to help support this effort, then 
let me know. International testing is particularly important for cultural and 
language design considerations.
Anyone interested in creating/joining a working group on this?



PS I know we're not doing Agile but the techniques are still helpful.
