IA Summit 2018 Chicago “Don’t Make Me Wait!” Resources
I should note: This work is the compilation of other researchers – most notably, Steven Seow. I have stood on their shoulders in presenting this work. Additionally, I am including a bibliography below of sources I used in compiling and presenting this research.
If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I can probably answer your inquiry or point you in the right direction. As a final thought, never forget: You can, indeed, mitigate long (or even what seems like long) wait times for user in interfaces and in service design.
