End User Profiling

Posted by

Hi All,
I am wondering if there are templates or guides available to help with developing user personas or end user personification during the start phase of a requirements gathering exercise?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi, Well… for different organization there are differents needs and different users.. So the best practice, for my opinion, is to adjust the content of the information managment system for each dipartment by common structure + adjust for individual user ,as much the system can give. This is the first step for good implementaion.

Thanks for replying, to focus my question more, I am looking for guides on creating user personas or end user personification in particular to help better understand the user base.

Hi, It is hard to believe that there is some guids like that…
But, maybe you should try to learn about UI/UX methods.
This should give you the user point of view.

Good luck!

You could look at some of the tools out there that help you create not only the personas, but the full journey mapping (and more!) such as Smaply and Xtensio. In MY opinion Xtensio is a more mature product and quite a bit more fully featured, especially if you are working as part of a cross-functional team to do the development.


Ah ,very handy, Xtensio presents some very nice persona templates, thanks for the share Lorne !

No problem 🙂


OK, in the spirit of sharing, some colleagues forwarded these to me, I have a fairly complete picture of the process now.
Thanks for all the replies!
