Kano Model Analysis of Three Web Portfolio Sites

Introduction
The Kano Model
Which features of a portfolio can be used to obtain a high level of viewer (potential client) satisfaction? Which portfolio features have a more than proportional influence on satisfaction, and which attributes are an absolute must in the eyes of the potential client? The Kano Model can be used to identify the attributes that are the basis for achieving customer (client/viewer) satisfaction with a product or service.

The Kano Model’s categories of a portfolio’s attributes are:
i) Basic attributes. Basic attributes are the expected attributes or “musts” of a portfolio, and do not provide an opportunity for portfolio differentiation. Increasing the performance of these attributes provides diminishing returns in terms of viewer satisfaction; however the absence or poor performance of these attributes results in extreme viewer dissatisfaction. The portfolio must have these attributes e.g. the portfolio is easy to read and navigate. ii) Performance attributes. Performance attributes are those for which more is generally better, and will improve viewer satisfaction. Conversely, an absent or weak performance attribute reduces viewer satisfaction. Of the needs viewers verbalise, most will fall into the category of performance attributes. These attributes will form the weighted needs against which portfolio concepts will be evaluated. The portfolio should have these attributes e.g. the portfolio’s content is current and regularly updated. iii) Excitement attributes. Excitement attributes are unspoken and unexpected by viewer but can result in high levels of viewer satisfaction, however their absence does not lead to dissatisfaction. Excitement attributes often satisfy latent needs – real needs of which viewer are currently unaware. These attributes create a WOW factor for the portfolio; they are sometimes referred to as 'viewer delights' e.g. Flash animations are used to add interest to the portfolio.

The Kano Model Analysis
Three examples of website portfolios for freelance designers and photographers were chosen to conduct the Kano Model Analysis. Annotated screen shots have been used to present the Analysis results for this illustrated report. I believe the online portfolio websites I have chosen are fun, inspiring, and creative works of art. My recommendations of what I believe the essential, performance and excitement attributes of a web portfolio should be are at the end of this report.

Website 1 - Jill Greenberg Portfolio
Website Manipulator at: http://www.manipulator.com/

i) Basic attributes.
Simple and easy to navigate this cleverly organized portfolio site co-opts Jill Greenberg’s photography as part of the design. Her work is vibrant and the minimalist surroundings funnel all attention to the photos themselves.

Recommendations
Technology trends and advancements are constantly moving forward at a fast pace so an online website should really reflec these changes. I believe the essential, performance and excitement attributes of a web portfolio should be:       Load quickly with out leaving you waiting for any length of time. Visually satisfying to view without any glaring or garnish colours. Text content should always be readableand not clash with the background. Navigation user friendly and simple and easy to follow. Navigation also to be interactive for the user. Content up to date and current with information clarifying content postings.

About Hi I started learning about computers about 12 years ago and have learnt a great deal in that time. I keep going back like a sponge and soaking up all that I can learn as it is constantly changing.
