Adaptive Path, a user-experience firm that helps businesses build better online services, is planning on holding a number of 2003 research and design methodology workshops. Past workshop clients include Visa, Boeing, The Washington Post, the United Nations, International SEMATECH, and Wells Fargo, among others.
The two-day workshops are focused on a variety of user experience topics, including: the business of user experience, designed to help transform a business with user-centered design; the elements of user experience, a discussion of the strategic foundations of user-centered design; managing internal politics, which covers techniques for overcoming political obstacles and getting support for good designs; making your content management system work for you; and metrics for success.
The practical approach to user experience design is a hit with conference attendees, as well. “Great workshop, ” says 2002 attendee David Burke of the Washington Post. “Jam-packed with techniques I’ll use in my Web projects from now on.”
The workshops are led by user experience experts with a diverse set of backgrounds and experience, including: Jeffrey Veen, author of The Art & Science of Methodology Workshops; Mike Kuniavsky, designer of the HotBot search engine; Janice Fraser, usability expert; and Jesse James Garrett, author of The Elements of User Experience.
