Whenever I’m in a position where I’m expected to provide UX feedback, I will typically start the conversation with the same four questions:

  • What problem are you trying to solve?
  • What stage of the process are you currently in?
  • What kind of feedback are you looking for?
  • How are you measuring success?

Asking these questions—particularly in this order—has several key benefits. They enable feedback to stay focused and relevant, context to the problem one is trying to solve, and a better understanding of the direction the designer is intending to head.
