Summary
Carroll describes designing software as designing future use by humans, a situation termed scenario design. The less prepared the software is for any potential scenario, the less useful the user is likely to find it. Carroll focuses not on designing software by listing requirements necessary for use, but by finding activities that need support and allowing them to drive the design
