Embedding UX In Any project, AMIS UX Event


Published on

Sander Haaksma / Marcel Maas
This lecture discusses various methods to improve the user experience of the application (or any other product). Proper UX design is specific for each project. The same goes for the project setup. There is no “One size fits all” here. However for each project size and duration there are some steps that need to be taken.
In this lecture we will discuss these steps. Which are absolutely necessary for which type and size of project and which can you skip? How does a UX designer fit into an agile project and how can you involve the end-user in the project for input. These are all topics that will be discussed. At the end of the lecture you should have a better understanding as to how UX fits in your next project. Whether you are the Manager, developer or the designer.
