  • Course details

    As a UX design professional, you want your team to be user-centered—doing usability testing, site visits, early prototype testing, or other user research—but they may not see the need. For example, many developers tend to systemize rather than empathize. They approach problems in a logical way and find it hard to see the emotional side to issues. Most users, in contrast, have a more complex relationship with the software they use. They have emotional responses to working with your product.

    In this practical course, look at what it takes to help systemizers to empathize, and how you can best integrate with development teams, communicate the value of UX to business-oriented team members, and cultivate executive champions. Upon wrapping up this course, you'll have a better understanding of how to help your colleagues grasp the importance of user experience—which, in turn, can help make design decisions a bit easier.

    - Hello, I'm Chris Nodder. Welcome to this course on making user experience happen on a team. If you're in a user experience role or manage a user experience team, you're probably familiar with the challenges of getting your colleagues interested in user experience. I've been coaching and training user experience teams for over 10 years now. During that time, I've worked out some of the things that really make development and business team members pay attention to what usability and user experience can offer them. In this course, we're going to cover practical tips that will help you integrate onto teams, engage with people in business roles, and sell your value to executives. It all focuses on being user-centric and data-driven.
