The popular ISO definition of usability in terms of user performance and satisfaction has recently been criticized as too narrow. The presentation will explain how the concept of usability can be broadened as a strategic goal for the user’s experience of the quality of the product in use and can provide a basis for the design and evaluation of not only productivity, but also user experience, flexibility, accessibility, risk reduction and consideration of a wider range of stakeholders. The approach is based on recent proposals in ISO to extend the definition of usability and quality in use.

Dr Nigel Bevan is an experienced usability consultant. He was previously Research Manager at Serco Usability Services. He has been manager of European projects that have incorporated user centred design into the development processes of several large organisations, and of the UsabilityNet project that has established a web site of usability resources. He participates in several international standards groups and contributed to the development of ISO 13407. He was responsible for developing the new Common Industry Format standard for usability requirements.

Nigel has given tutorials on usability, web evaluation and user centred design at international conferences. He was Director of Professional Development for the Usability Professionals Association and leads the UPA Usability Body of Knowledge initiative. He was a member of the US National Academies Committee on Human-System Design Support. Nigel has first degrees in physics and psychology, and a PhD in man-machine interaction.
