WHAT IS A UX WORKSHOP?
A User Experience (UX) workshop is about getting the goals of the business and the user needs aligned. UX Workshops engage multiple perspectives, frame the issues and set the scene.
They are a fast and effective way to get your team on the same page, making them more involved in the process. Aligning goals and objectives to get fast, clear decisions and agreements made and setting projects up for success!
Who’s the user?
Someone using or effected by your product or service, your team or even the employees of the business.
COULD YOU BENEFIT FROM A UX WORKSHOP?
KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER
How well do you really know your customers? We look at the customer journey as a complete set of experiences that customers go through when interacting with your company and brand. Instead of just focusing on transactions or experience, the customer journey documents the full experience of being a customer online and offline.
- Having meetings about meetings?
- Can't connect with your users?
- Hit a wall with your App/product/Service design?
- Or a Startup struggling with your value proposition?
UX workshops are perfect for you and should be used as a valuable step throughout your project process, giving your clarity, insight and a clear vision.
An employee experience strategy can give you competitive advantage. Employee journey maps enable businesses to focus on the entire employee experience bringing together all the workplace, HR and management practices that impact people in their job.
