Software Innovation Pitfalls
Relying On Regular Voice Of The Customer's Activities
The problem is that customers will never tell you directly what they really need, they can only tell you what they think they want. You need a different approach than relying on what they tell you.
relying on Iteration
Designing great software takes hard work. It is not just a matter of implementing agile methodologies with lean UX and iterating with clients until the product is a success. It takes more than that...you need to start with the right concept.
Relying on a beautiful Interface
While important, a beautiful user interface does not guarantee a great user experience. A pretty nicely laid-out interface helps the user figure out how to locate himself with the screen he is looking at but cannot not guarantee it will help him/her achieve his/her goals.

Tax Windows Files
Redesign of the display of Tax Windows Files are tax answers the government gives to questions they receive from the public. They provide rich information for anyone that want to know what the government is thinking about a plethora of tax topics.
In User Experience Design, creating the screens is not everything. We need to communicate to the developers how the screens map with the functionality that is being developed.
I created this map to indicate how the screens and the functionality worked together helping the development team understand the intended user experience we wanted to create.
