Usability Heuristics for Product Teams
Good design decisions are not coincidental nor subjunctive — they are built on a solid foundation. One of the concepts that stood the test of time is the set of 10 Usability Heuristics by Jakob Nielsen, created 30 years ago but still relevant for usability testing purposes. Understanding and applying this method will help product teams speak the same design language and boost their efficiency. Learn how to implement these principles to enhance your product's usability.
