Stories are a great way to collect, analyze and share information. Stories can help us better understand our users, explain our research, and demonstrate our products.

This presentation will start with an overview of all the way stories can be used to understand an audience and improve the user experience. Then we will look more deeply at the user and subject matter expert (SME) interview and how eliciting stories can help you collect richer details, going beyond the facts to a deeper understanding of products and processes.

An essential aspect of storytelling is the persona, a portrait of a user. We'll show how personas tell stories that can be used to illustrate user scenarios and help you to better communicate with your users.
