Product teams these days need to be moving quickly and iteratively in delivering great products. At times though, teams can get stuck on how to move the designs forward. Sometimes it’s because of unexpected complexity and other times there are multiple paths to explore. In this workshop, participants will experience a variety of methods that help teams gain a shared understanding through collaboration with clients, product owners, and key stakeholders. Each of the methods covered are light-weight and can be adopted by teams at any stage in the product design and development. Learn how to: + get started with user research, + define personas, + generate and turn ideas into solid solutions, + create low-fidelity mockups that can be tested with users immediately, + conduct a usability test, + synthesize your findings, + and gain focus for the product through games and structured discussion. Every method covered will focus on designing a mobile app so that participants get the full experience of how each method fits into designing a product. Don't worry if you don't have any UX background, this workshop will guide you through exercises. And if you're a UX rockstar, come flex your usability prowess with other professionals. Come learn and share tips & tricks! Everyone on a product team can benefit from this hands-on practice.
