With the advent of new business models, Internet based routes to market and consumerization of IT with smart devices the bar for user experience expectations have been raised high. Product professionals have to adapt to ensure their products offer a delighting user experience. Usability & Interface Design is evolving from a nice to have to a must to have even for B2B products.
One of the best things I liked about the workshop was their systematic approach towards the design. Also the customized case study and exercises on the EPG Guide on creating mock ups was really useful. Strongly recommend it!
