Test How to Prevent Feature Creep with User Story Best

As part of a larger digital product narrative, working with user stories throughout the design process helps designers focus on improving UX. Clearly written user stories can help keep people at the center of the design process, empathize with a product’s target audience, and generate ideas that better fit people’s lives.

How often do product designers find themselves in the proverbial “putting the cart before the horse” situation? As the project kicks off, we work out the tech details and how we’re going to deliver it. Development frameworks are defined, target devices determined, screen sizes set, then the team springs into creating solutions, adding product features at random.

During this process, we frantically generate a plethora of UX artifacts: mood boards, sitemaps, user flows, personas, and empathy maps, to name a few. The boat is loaded but sailing without a rudder or a map. Then one day, we wake up, and it hits us, “why are we making this product, how do we define its features, and how do we prioritize them?”
