The SAP User Experience Community is a public community dedicated to the exchange of ideas and knowledge about design and user experience. The Community is for everyone interested in design and user experience, so join the conversation!
In my post, Catch Me if You Can! Mobile Cocktails Spark a Design Dialog, I share yet another idea on how to promote design and user experience in your organization.

In this visually rich and inspiring post, How the Heidelberg Windmill made us forget our laptops, Alessandro Sposato recounts a team building activity which he organized so his team could learn why and how to run a letterpress workshop, despite working in a digital enterprise.

Two posts this month by Bernard Rummel about the System Usability Scale, a widely used, standardized 10-item questionnaire to measure user satisfaction.

In the discussion, the UX magic of engineering, SAP’s Chief Designer, Martin Wezowski talks about how computer scientists and artists get together to produce some of the most stunning installations around the globe at a company called Art+Com Studios. This leads him to some interesting thoughts about interdisciplinary research, experimentation, and innovation.
