    Andrew Greenwood

    User Experience Researcher, UX Designer, IA

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    I am a user experience consultant with a history of working with startups and world famous brands across multiple industries to define ideas, identify audiences and blueprint user interfaces. You can view my portfolio at: www.wearefuego.com My LinkedIn profile is here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andygreenwood2009 Expert in understanding your audience and modelling solutions to meet their requirements up to wireframe prototype level. Comfortable with producing deliverables and documentation for commercial and technical audiences with communication skills developed through working with a range of organisations from blue chip to start up. Frequently Asked Questions What software do you use for wireframing/prototyping? I prefer using Axure as it is one of the most powerful packages and I am an expert user meaning I can produce high quality wireframes and clickable prototypes in a shorter time. I am proficient in many other packages such as Balsamiq, Invision and Omnigraffle. How do you approach remote user testing? There are a range of options out there for usability testing on a remote basis. Some moderated by external parties, others unmoderated. I will take you through the options available but I always recommend the most effective (and free of software cost) method of using a conferencing facility such as Skype or Gotomeeting and sharing screens. This allows me to run the testing session live and be reactive to the subject as they use the product, questioning based on their usage.

    Sr. Project Planning, Scheduling and Data Analyst

    United States - Last active: 20 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 3

    Hello! Do you have a project you NEED to keep on schedule and deliver on time? For every milestone you miss you are in danger of missing your delivery date. Schedule slips mean you reduce your profit and your customer loses confidence you can deliver when you said you would. What you need is a project plan and schedule that will help you keep track of your project. Your schedule needs start of project, durations for each task, and a good logical network of predecessors and successors. Once you have that you need to baseline your project so at the end you can analyze where the bottleneck might have occurred. Let me help you build a realistic schedule so you can meet delivery on schedule which will help you deliver on budget. I have helped major aerospace companies achieve their goals on delivery saving them lots of $$$. I've also started helping out small companies so they can grow and profit as they implement better planning for their projects and products. Remember, you need to keep track of your projects and your production/services to optimize your business. You need my help whether your business is virtual or you have a physical location. Let me know if you have any questions. Regards, Minerva
