Does User Experience Save/Make Money?

So, try as I might, being a new UX developer, I'm trying to find reputable data about reputable companies who saved/made [insert actual dollar figure], and how usability testing was responsible. I was actually told at work today that "there is no way you can prove that usability testing makes money." It's a personal challenge now. Smile

Size of global usability/UX market

Does anyone know if there's a report about that estimates the total size of the usability/UX market. I managed to find one report that puts a figure on the UK market size, but can't seem to see anything about the global market.

Thanks in advance!

UX Training

Hi All,

I am considering some UX training and am interested in either the CUA training offered by HFI or the UXD "Mini-Masters" program at Rutgers. Any thoughts on either of these programs? Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time or money to put into this training but am looking for a good overview program and something that I can put on my resume.

Thanks in advance for your input; here are links to both programs:

HFI - http://humanfactors.com/home/usability.asp

[JOBS] IxD & Visual Design, Maark, Freelance (Anywhere)

I have a cool project for a Fortune 1000 company that came across my
desk this morning. I thought one of you might be interested.

We'll be designing and developing a tool for creating custom branded
slideshow presentations that can be saved/exported for use outside of
the tool itself. Could be pretty fun to hash out.

I'm looking for a designer to take lead on both the interaction and
visual design over the next couple of weeks.

If you're interested, shoot me an email and let's discuss in more
