I am employed in Big Pharma, as their only information architect/user experience designer within their corporate headquarters. As such I focus more on the outcome then on the UX journey. What I have been successful at is a hybrid requirement gathering wireframe. Essentially, I have done away with extensive requirements gathering. There is great inefficiency with requirement gathering meeting after requirement gathering meeting. I quickly put together a “low fidelity” wireframe and re-check the requirements with the client. I use this wireframe to enact my user story, to see that I and my internal client are on the same page and in tune with the deadlines and milestone’s. This method also helps to manage any scope creep or at least to validate whether it is truly warranted.
The company I work for is moving engineering software from a desktop platform to the cloud. This past Fall, I mentored graduate students in user experience to create an experience map concept of a proposal for a new cloud service. To get the students started, I supplied them with existing personas and "just enough" domain information.
The students rapidly iterated through three versions of the experience map. In each cycle I provided direction and answered additional background questions as needed.
The students gave me an fresh outsider perspective on the cloud. Our final experience map uncovered workflow gaps and changed the development team's thinking about what to build. Last but not least, the students received an A grade on their project.
