      a workshop with Dan Mall
      webcast
      June 14 - 17, 2021

      You might already be familiar with the “components” part of design systems, but what comes next? How are design systems best used by team members other than designers and engineers like product managers and content creators? What’s the best way to get them used by as many people as is appropriate? Who shouldn’t use a design system? What should success metrics look like? SuperFriendly founder and CEO Dan Mall will walk you through common design system pitfalls, how to avoid and escape them, and all the other intermediate-level stuff that everyone’s asking to help you see how they apply to your specific organization.

      webcast
      June 2 - 4, 2021

      UX researchers and designers have powerful tools for understanding people, but their training often lacks key skills needed to navigate and influence the business environments in which they work. This workshop will give you the business acumen you need to amplify your impact within your own organization or your clients’ organizations. Covering the fundamentals of finance, organizational structure, and strategy, you’ll learn the tools and frameworks that drive business thinking and decision making, and learn to be a better interlocutor between traditional business functions and your own function or department.

      webcast
      March 3 - 5, 2021

      10 hours over 3 segments: Mar 3-5, 2021. Experience measurement can be useful in just about any phase of the development of a product or service. Early on, it can be used to get input from target users. During iterative design and prototyping, experience metrics can be used to get quick feedback about design alternatives. And once a product or service is deployed, you can understand what is going on based on systematically measuring customers’ attitude and behavior. This workshop is oriented towards practical use, with a strong emphasis on interactive quizzes and real-world examples.

In this workshop, you’ll learn the basics of voice design and apply those skills to plan your own voice app or skill.
