About UX Strategy 

UX strategy is a process that should be started before the design or development of a digital product commences. It is a practice that when done empirically is a better guarantee of a successful digital product than just crossing your fingers, designing some wireframes, and then writing a bunch of code. It’s the method by which you validate that your solution actually solves a problem for real customers in a dynamic marketplace. Take this workshop to experience a deep dive into the subject matter with both lectures and plenty of hands-on exercises.

What will you learn about

  • Why the empirical practice of user experience strategy is crucial for devising successful online products
  • How to validate a value proposition and a provisional persona
  • How to identify direct and indirect digital competitors of your value proposition
  • How to collect and capture quantitative and qualitative data for doing thorough market research
  • How to conduct a methodical analysis for narrowing in on a unique product and opportunity space
  • How to use storyboarding for creating a narrative that focuses on a products’ value innovation and business model

As a bonus for participating at this event, you will also receive UX toolkit and copies of UX Strategy book.
