If you had five minutes with a user of your product or service what would you ask him or her? Would you even know how to approach that person? Or who to ask? What makes a good interview anyway? Interviewing is both an art and a science, but often, both are overlooked. Taking time to ask the right questions reveals insights into the experiences we design. Everyone is has a story to tell, and everyone has insight that can inform your product, website, or service experience. But if we don’t ask good questions, we’ll lose the valuable input coming directly from the people we’re designing for.
Whether formal or informal, on a shoestring or a big budget, this workshop will give you concrete strategies for conducting interviews to get results you can use. Learn strategies for asking good questions, how to listen (more challenging than you think), get interview technology you need, and find out what the experts are doing in the field. Walk away with practical experience you can use the very same day to inform the products you’re creating.
