Collaborative Design – a hands-on approach

Breakfast BriefingAnyone involved in the design and delivery of a new product can appreciate the amount of planning and work that goes into the development process. Regardless of whether you work in IT, marketing, finance or project management you will appreciate how important it is to maintain a clear line of communication with each and every stake holder to ensure that the end result is the best it can be, on time and on budget!

But how do you set up new projects for success in a fast moving, agile environment?  How do you ensure shared understanding and ownership of new initiatives in just a few days?

This informative and practical breakfast briefing will demonstrate :

  • What is collaborative design
  • How it will benefit your project and team
  • Which resources you will need to do it
  • When to include it in your projects to best effect

We have worked with User Vision since 2004 on improving the Careers Scotland web offering. Our new website represents the culmination of three years of hard work to improve the usability and accessibility of the site and ensure it is truly customer focussed. The results of the recent survey indicate that this hard work has produced significant results for Careers Scotland and much of this is due to putting in place the improvements recommended by User Vision.
