Especially for existing products that are already established on the market and are now to be further developed, changes are time-consuming and expensive.

How does the method work?

The Critical Incident Technique is a method that allows to find out very precisely which moments in the handling of a product really stayed in the user’s mind.


The Critical Incident Technique answers these questions

  • Where do problems (e.g. errors, waiting times, getting “lost”) occur when using my product?
  • How does the use of my products change over time?
  • Is there anything about my product that annoys or excites my users?
  • Does the design of my interface distract the user from their task (e.g. monitoring or driving a vehicle)?
