User interface designers are trained to strive for the interface ultimate interface, one that is usable, effective and engaging. However, in a commercial environment, there are rarely sufficient resources to achieve the ultimate interface, Tight deadlines, limited budget and staff, shifting priorities, and conflicting agendas all affect the final product design. In such a setting, designers must revise their vision of the ultimate interface to provide the best implementable and affordable user interface, one that can be realized with the given resource constraints.

This book provides an overview of the typical issues that arise during GUI project development in a business environment. It also provides specific recommendations and job-aids that may be used at various phases in the product development cycle. User interface designers, programmers, project managers and development team leaders, and writers of user guides, reference manuals, and on-line help will find this book invaluable.
