Next up in our Ask the UXperts series, we’re talking with one of the most energetic and friendly UXers that I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with. That person is Joe Natoli and we’re talking user requirements.
In the session we’ll discuss ways to unpack the qualitative data that we get from user research to figure out what people really want rather than what they just think or say they want – and how that information can be translated into functional requirements. We’ll also touch on ways to find that sweet spot connecting user needs to business goals.
- Where: Our dedicated ‘Ask Joe’ Slack channel (You’ll need to request an invitation if you haven’t yet joined our Slack channel)
- When: 1pm Wednesday 15 June PDT or 6am Thursday 16 June AEST

How to Ask Your Questions
If you can’t make the live session but have questions, we’d love to collect them ahead of time and we’ll ask Joe on your behalf. You can submit your questions here. We’ll publish the responses (along with the full transcript) in the days following the session.
Here are a few question ideas about user requirements to get you started:
- It’s a well known UX myth that users know what they want! What are some practical ways that we can solicit accurate and actionable user requirements without coaching?
- What about tips for interpreting those requirements once we have them?
- How heavily should business goals weigh into prioritising user needs and requirements?
How does Ask the UXperts work?
These sessions run for approximately an hour and best of all, they don’t cost a cent. We use a dedicated public Slack channel. That means that there is no audio or video, but a full transcript will be posted up on here in the days following the session.
