Sketching Collaboratively: Tools and methods to get your teams to sketch more
products and services

UX design is not a job to be done in silos anymore, designers are tasked with guiding the teams they work with to make better choices for the sake of the users. They need to work collaboratively with stakeholders/team members to integrate and understand business requirements and technology feasibility while advocating for the user. Time has come to repurpose some of the core UXers’ tools and methods for a collaborative and lean environment to build a shared understanding and work towards common product goals.

In this workshop, you will be introduced to collaborative sketching exercises. You will learn how to run such exercises to ideate, develop and iterate on possible design solutions with the development and management teams they work with.

UX In The Jungle
products and services

UX In The Jungle is a tabletop game that empowers UX practitioners to see the big picture of product development. It can help them with evangelizing the importance of different UX functions and skills within the organisation. Players in the same group must collaborate to understand requirements, figure out user needs, make trade-offs between different features, manage market change risks, and deal with various other development cycle challenges to release their products on time with good usability and (most important of all) make lots money.

UX Coaching for Organisational Transformation
products and services

UX coaching done well can motivate the disenchanted and inspire the disconnected. Join Jodine as she shares perspectives from her experience as an ‘outsider’ bringing UX coaching into organizations that have a high demand for UX work but lack the internal expertise. She will also offer some principles for smoothing the coaching journey so that you / your clients can reach a common goal — to give internal teams the experience of engaging directly with customers, and to empower teams to integrate new UX methods into their work with confidence, enthusiasm, and pride.
