But is there a method of design that will create usable systems or are we left in the hands of design auteurs with a magical touch? By analysing and contrasting the methodology of Contextual and Goal Oriented design I applied a version of both to a piece of software in order not only to improve the experience of using it but also to determine how well the methods could be applied and how they could be combined
