Creating support for UX is an ongoing job. But how do you figure out where to start? What are the quick wins vs long term possibilities for your organization?In 3 steps you will work on your own:
Step 1: Use the UX maturity model
Step 2: Create your current workflow; how does UX work together with others?
Step 3: Draw your ideal UX workflow
The aim of this workshop is to step into the shoes of a UX consultant. The outcome is solid advice for your organization on how to embed UX & UX research, which is aligned with your personal UX goals. By following the steps the participant can apply this framework in future UX projects as a UX consultant.
