User Experience (UX) service

Training

Our six modules form a 3-day UX and Design Thinking training course which runs several times a year, plus online training is available on demand. We can build bespoke sessions that meet your team's needs and availability.

Workshopping and collaboration essentials

Workshopping
This session introduces the core principles of running a design thinking workshop, and emphasises the value of taking a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to planning, prioritisation and problem solving.

Introduction to persona development

Personas
In this session we explore the core principles and develop proto-personas building on the concepts and scenario introduced in the workshop essentials session.

Experience mapping essentials

Experience mapping
In this session we look at how exposure to end users and collaborative stakeholder exercises can be synthesized into summary representations of user experiences, and utilised as a basis for solution ideas generation that can subsequently be tried out prior to significant development effort.
