Friday, May 31, 2013: The UX Team of One Bootcamp
Many organizations have only a modest understanding of user experience. Some have none at all. In such an environment, if you are trying to educate and inspire others towards a more user-centered way of working, you are a user experience team of one. (And that’s true whether you're part of a UX team or not.)
This workshop is a hands on crash course in the skills, methods, and clever hacks that successful UX teams of one use to work inclusively, efficiently, and effectively. It is also a frank and candid guide to the challenges and opportunities that you might encounter if you're a UX team of one.
In this workshop, you'll learn:
- Quick and effective methods for every point in the UX process, from planning a project to collaborative lo-fi design and rapid prototyping
- Language and tools for "selling" UX and building support
- Soft skills for gaining buy-in, conquering conflict, and communicating your work
Like any good bootcamp, this workshop will get you working, sweating, and challenging your own assumptions about what you're capable of.
