UIE is excited to announce 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.
This winter, we’re taking this workshop on the road to:
- Portland, OR on Tuesday, February 17, 2009
- Minneapolis, MN on Thursday, February 19, 2009
- Atlanta, GA on Monday, March 2, 2009
Recognized industry leader, Jared Spool, will share information that previously 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.
