Creating a great user experience isn't about a single screen.
It's about how all the screens fit together.

Shortcuts have consequences.2

"We'll deal with it later ..." How many times have you heard, or said, this phrase? The truth is, we rarely go back and address these things. And then quickly, we end up with an overwhelmed stack of "UX debt" and we aren't even sure how to begin tackling it. Sound familiar?

Every decision we make impacts the experience. We must always consider how our decisions to save time or launch faster may be compromising the experience.

Because every detail matters.

With every shortcut you take there is a consequence you incur. Think twice before you skip a step.

ACTION ITEM

2 must ask questions for every screen.

Tell your team:

For every screen that you work on ask yourself two questions. These questions will help you focus on the whole experience and reduce the risk of getting stuck in the weeds:

1. What did someone do before this screen? 

2. Where will they go next? Good luck! 

ACTION ITEM

Zoom out and create a screen map.

Tell your team:

​Placeholder Is your team stuck on a single page? 

Take a moment to zoom out by sketching a rough screen map (site map) so you can see how all the screens fit together. We recommend you use InVision’s tool, Freehand, to quickly (and collaboratively) map out your screen flow.
