More info: We all strive to create positive user experiences, but reality often gets in the way. Maybe you lack a seasoned UX designer; maybe you're facing tight budgets and timelines; or maybe you encounter too much resistance from clients and colleagues.
But what if you make your team a part of the UX process? You’ll gain a mutual understanding of each others’ needs. And importantly, inviting them on board will help you understand their needs. A core value of user experience is empathy: understanding the needs of users as well as the needs of colleagues and clients.
We’ll participate in a collaborative UX activity and talk about ways that you can incorporate the activity into your work. Whether you’re a seasoned UX practitioner, or someone who’s new to UX, there’s something in this session for you.
