To build a platform for (high, sustainable) use, we need to know what will thrill users. Finding the right concoction of technology, functionality and design to thrill and delight users takes a thousand decisions, pivots and changes. The JSTOR Labs team has been using Flash Builds – high-intensity, short-burst, user-driven development efforts – in order to prototype new ideas and get to a user saying “Wow” in as little as a week. In this talk, I’ll describe how we’ve done this, highlighting the partnerships, skills, tools and content that help us innovate.

  12. 12. • Flexible technology that allows for componentization, and continuous deployment • Ability to produce, present, augment and query content in a variety of manners (aka data science) • A safe-space to fail, either through a Labs team, an A/B test or in-person testing • Comfort with uncertainty • The time to dedicate to the work – eliminate distractions; timed works INGREDIENTS A SPACE TO INNOVATE CulturalTechnical
  13. 13. • The ability to show work to users early and often, with the whole team present. • User-research skills and experience: - Listening deeply - Having multiple tools, fit for purpose - Knowing what can and can’t be learned from a user • Hypothesis-creation skills and the discipline to know what you’re trying to learn when INGREDIENTS USERS
  14. 14. • Seeing through a user’s eyes, you see the ecosystem in which your product operates • That helps show opportunities / challenges that can’t easily be met • Partners can help to fill those gaps • Our best partnerships have been open, exploratory collaborations INGREDIENTS A PARTNER
