UX is under-resourced and under-utilized in organizing, but it is key to understanding what your users need, how they think, and how they behave—and incorporating that understanding into every aspect of your process. This session will focus on the value of user experience and how to employ UX in your work. Good UX leads to higher engagement, higher retention, more referrals, and a better experience overall for the people using your product/content/service. This training does not include graphic design, user interface training, branding/identity, or marketing.
No previous experience in UX, design or tech is required. This is a training for attendees with zero experience who want to do more UX in their organization.
