Find Business Priorities by Understanding What Matter to Your Users

Whereas user experience and usability have been used almost interchangeably in many occasions, through my conversations with many product-design professionals, I’ve found that “usability” is being increasingly used in a narrow context, in which it specifically refers to the ease of task completion and is closely associated with a “testing” connotation. On the other hand, “user experience” is used by practitioners in much broader contexts, referring to things ranging from ease of use to user engagement to visual appeal, and therefore I believe is a better term in capturing all the psychological and behavioral elements of user interactions with products.

Read my article published on UX Matters, More Than Usability: The Four Elements of User Experience, Part I for a detailed explanation.
