Lean UX Workshop (Virtual)

20 hours

"I have a product idea, and I want to make sure I build the right thing."

Always Evolving
The world is always evolving and traditional models for product delivery don't allow teams to quickly adapt. This often leads to wasted time, investment and sometimes critical failure. Product teams need the tools processes in place to regularly validate the product's proposed values to the business or its customers and the agility to quickly pivot on the changes that will happen during product development.

Lean UX Workshops Kickstart Successful Solutions
Heavily influenced by the principles of Lean, The Lean Startup by Eric Ries, and Lean UX by Jeff Gothelf and Josh Seiden, the Lean UX Workshop teaches business professionals the principles and activities they need to ensure their products stay relevant in this fast paced and ever changing world. Our team of dedicated user experience professionals will guide your product team and stakeholders through this unique and proven approach putting your product on the path for success.

What to Expect

The Virtual Lean UX Workshop is conducted across five half-day remote sessions held over two weeks. In the workshop participants will interact with workshop facilitators, product stakeholders and product deliver professionals in both a large group setting and in smaller breakout teams in each of the workshop's four parts:

  1. Collaborative Discovery 
  2. Customer Behaviors, Needs & Drivers
  3. Testable Value Statements & Prioritization
  4. Product Design Studio

What is a workshop? A workshop is a series of working sessions in which technology decision makers, architects, engineers and line of business representation meet with WWT subject matter experts, engineers, program/process management and sales teams to evaluate or compare how specific strategies and technologies could be used in your organization. These are paid engagements with a defined outcome and deliverable, e.g., action plan, high-level architectural design, proposal or quote for project implementation. They take place in-person or via video conference and last from 2 hours to 5 days.
