Sometimes Personas is the right sentiment but not the right approach,
because they assume you have quite distinguishably different user
archetypes. In this case it may be better to adopt a role-based approach, whereby you define
different ‘hats’ or roles that a user may take in order to fulfil a kind of
task or set of tasks.
