The UIE Roadshow is back! UIE is excited to continue our new UIE Roadshow: Secrets Behind Designing Great User Experiences, a full-day workshop, based on 10 years of UIE’s extensive research, that will deliver new insights and inspire your team to create the best user experiences. Folks who missed out on the February and March Roadshows are asking us to bring them back. We aim to please, so we’re doing another round this June with three new locations.
In late June, we’re taking this workshop on the road to:
- Seattle, WA the week of June 21st, 2009
- Denver, CO the week of June 21st, 2009
- Washington, DC the week of June 29th, 2009
We’re just finalizing the venues and dates. If you want to be notified about the exact date and venue, send us an email with the city you’re interested in, and we’ll email you the moment we finalize everything.
The Roadshows back in February and March were a huge successful and filled up quickly. Even though the exact date hasn’t be finalized, you can still register and reserve you seat now.
Recognized industry leader, Jared Spool, will share information we’ve only made available to our biggest clients.
During the day, Jared will lead you through these sessions:
9:00 am: Designing for the Age of Experience
Jared will open the day with an overview of UIE’s research into great experience design. He’ll reveal the factors that are found in the organizations that are successful at delivering great experiences. And, he’ll show you the important criteria that you can use to measure your team’s effectiveness.
10:45 am: UX Level-Up: Taking Your Team to the Next Level
You’ll assess the critical dimensions that will pinpoint what your team needs to succeed. Jared will share how UIE measures organizations, which factors are most critical, and how to tell exactly where your group falls. From there, you’ll put together a solid action plan, describing the exact steps you need to take, to go to the next level and beyond.
1:00 pm: The Making of a UX Vision
You’ll discover the secrets behind creating a unified user experience vision that you can share with your entire organization. (Hint: it’s not nearly as hard as it sounds.) Jared will show you how, once you’ve created your vision, your team can use it to guide and focus your entire organization on a path that will yield delighted users while exceeding business objectives.
3:15 pm: Magic and Mental Models: Using Illusions to Simplify Design
In a perfect session to end the day, Jared will use professional magic effects to demonstrate the parallels between the world of magical illusions and the world of digital design. He’ll reveal the secrets from several magical illusions, and then show you how to use the same mechanisms to create delightful experiences for your users.
