Designing UX Workshops





Do you want to design and run workshops that are energetic, encourage sharing and promote innovative thinking?

Whether it is a co-creation session with your customers or a product development meeting with internal teams, collaborative workshops are a creative and efficient way to gain insights and generate new ideas.  

A workshop may be a simple idea, but when not planned or designed effectively it can descend into a frustrating and unproductive experience.

In this 1/2 day session, we will show you how to plan, design, and run effective workshops. We will share strategies on how to encourage collaboration and idea generation, and we will teach you different workshop activities you can use to achieve the results you want.
