i-reflect is an analytical tool that allows you to assess your company's state of Human-Computer Practice in four areas of human-centredness, process, performance, and impact in just 20 minutes. i-reflect is a tool that emerged from four years of doctoral research studies on usability and user experience design practices in development companies and based on industry standards.
i-reflect allows project team members (developers, designers, project managers, analyst, product owners, etc.) to do peer assessments of their processes and then reflect on the variations visible from individual assessments and map out strategic plans towards maturity of their human-centred design practice.
Our studies have shown that it is important for software development companies to prioritize non-functional requirements in projects. By using i-reflect for continuous process assessments, development companies would be able to increase their awareness and knowledge of Human-Computer Interaction practice.
Two key propositions of this tool are:
1. A company that pays attention to human-centredness both in its internal and development processes will be able to perform usability design more systematically in projects.
2. A company that applies usability design performance in projects makes it more feasible to achieve positive impacts on product’s usability.
