Move Beyond Analysis Paralysis

Escape the travesty of the blank whiteboard. Reveal important requirements early and establish a framework for prioritizing what you want to build.

Infuse Your Design Process with UX

Take an important break from defining features that fit into a sprint. Take a fresh (and fast) look at the overall experience to make sure it’s coherent and engaging.

Stop Feature Creep and Design Debates

Get to the right solution by doing what we designers do best: solving real-world problems. Use scenarios to focus discussions and separate weird edge-cases from normal usage.

Ask Kim any question and you’ll instantly get deep, thoughtful insights that come from her years of experience working on the toughest designs imaginable. (Seriously, try it!)

We first met Kim when she was running the training and consulting practices at Cooper, one of the leading agencies in great design. She played a significant role in crafting their Goal-Directed design process, which brought users into the center of their clients’ most challenging projects.

Her scenario-driven design workshop was a favorite of last year’s User Interface Conference, so we couldn’t wait to bring her back. In fact, weeks after the conference, dozens of attendees told us they were now using scenarios every day.

Kim’s thoughtful approach to design process made it possible for them, and it’s exactly what she’ll do for you, too.
