Factoring human behaviour into our digital workplace designs

Amanda Broomhall Managing Partner ABCW

We often take short cuts when we do our designs and end up copying others or relying on what we think are ‘best practice’ concepts. While this is often enough, if we don’t question what is best practice or do our own research we may not achieve usable outcomes.

Most of us are aware of the ‘F reading’ pattern, but are there other common human behaviours that we should be including in our designs?

In this talk, Amanda will look at a few ideas from other disciplines, such as anthropology, neuroscience and psychology that should be considered when designing internal user interfaces.
