User Friendly 2012 Conference in Beijing, China on 9 Nov. to 11 Nov.

With the popularization of products and services characterized by user experience (abbreviated as UX thereafter) among customers, UX has become a hit in the profession so much so that there is now an enormous demand for UX talents even though most enterprises have already employed UX professionals or even established related departments. The ever widening gap between supply and demand of UX-related professionals, however, has propelled the engagement of many a non-professional in UX and the establishment of UX as a major in colleges and universities.

Persona validation & development

Hi there

I'm running a session with stakeholders to validate and develop the work I've been doing on a set of Personas. I just wondered if anyone had any experience of this & any ideas for how to get the most out of an hour session. I'm going to present the personas and explain how I got there initially but this is pretty dry & I'd really like to get them engaged and empathising. I think developing stories and scenarios around the characters would be the way forward but any ideas for how to do this in a workshop setting - exercises etc?
