Usability DefinedUsability studies how users engage a given product. It draws from the principles of user-centered design, which places successful user interaction with a product as key to redesign.

Usability is not a focus groupwe are not testing whether users like the product (solely); rather we are testing their ease-of-use or navigational success of a product.D.E.A.R.DiscoveryEvaluationAnalysisReportingUsability Triangle See
