Prioritization of UX Issues

It’s our one-hour live Twitter discussion (via the #uxchat Twitter hashtag) where you can rub virtual shoulders with some of the most knowledgeable UXperts on the planet and discuss a different UX topic every week. I was answering the following questions:

  • How do you prioritize features? How do you factor in technical feasibility, importance to users, and importance to business?
  • How do you create systems that will help you track and prioritize user feedback?
  • Are there techniques out there that can help prioritize UX issues?
