What to expect

User experience has become the most important factor for designing successful digital products. The quality of the user experience determines whether websites, apps and software are used or not. User experience design has therefore become a key factor, a touch on the scales. An excellent “user experience” ensures satisfied users, creates better customer loyalty, increases credibility, ensures positive reception in media and app stores and enhances a company’s reputation.

What is it about

The profession of the user experience designer has become increasingly differentiated. Knowledge and skills in the professions UX Design, Usability and Interaction Design are more important and in demand than ever. It is becoming more and more important to apply the methods of these disciplines in a concentrated form in order to quickly come to pragmatic solutions and to develop them iteratively. In the spirit of the Lean UX and Agile UX mindsets, we will familiarize you with the development of user scenarios, user story maps and content strategies to develop information architectures, wireframes and interactive prototypes, which will then be tested.

What you will learn

In this workshop we teach the participants the methodologies of the User Experience Design and provide them with a lean toolset (Lean UX). With the help of agile methods (design sprints) you will learn to find intelligent and practicable solutions with the help of different stakeholders. You will learn to design interactive, digital products with an excellent user experience in a very short time.

Who should participate

The workshop was developed for designers and design managers, project and product managers, web and software developers, speakers and editors, copywriters and concept developers, marketing and content managers, media and information officers, information and interaction managers, usability engineers, scrum masters and product owners, who are responsible for the conceptual and strategic development of websites and apps in agencies, companies and organisations.
