UX Kick Off Meeting

Earlier today I sat down and thought what are some good UX Kick Off meeting questions that should be asked every time you first meet with a team. I work in interaction design with desktop applications, so the questions are catered to that. I am open to if anyone has some other ideas on other great questions. (Keep in my these are very basic, and the more questions asked the better. So while this list isn’t small, you should always ask more questions).

  • Who they (whoever you are meeting with) are? 
    • what are their roles
    • who do they report to
    • who is driving this project
  • Who are the different users
    • what is their goal
    • what is their job
    • how do they benefit from using this
    • what are their pain points (what are they struggling with)
    • How savy are they with this application 
  • has any research been conducted
    • what is the business need of this project
    • is there any documentation that can provided for this
  • is there an existing tool
    • is there any other tool they can use to accomplish this goal
  • how does the rest of the solution work
    • how do they get here
      • what does the user do before this page
      • ask for scenarios with how the user would arrive on this page
      • do they (solution designers) know where this lives within the framework
    • where do they go afterwards in the application
  • what is the ideal look and fantasies of how this will work
    • what is your vision on how this will work
    • what is the ‘happy trail’ in accomplishing these goals
      • in a perfect world how would this function
  • how can we make it successful
  • what is the time line for this project
    • when will code start
    • when is code cut off / delivery
    • what are the expectations with meetings
      • weekly/bi-weekly/etc
  • what is the scope of this project
  • what is the platform
  • provide a ‘to-do’ list for solution designers
  • before leaving the meeting establish an understanding of what you will be working on until the next meeting
