FEATURED SPEAKER: PORTLAND
Have you worked with difficult stakeholders before, during, and after UX studies? Did you have to deal with people who don't understand or don't respect UX processes? Do stakeholders empower you to conduct research? Do they act upon research results?
In his half day workshop on "Buy-in For UX Research", Tomer Sharon will demonstrate techniques for conducting user research, collaborating with stakeholders, and effectively presenting research results - because no one wants their research report to be relegated to cold storage.
The hands-on workshop is designed for user experience and usability research practitioners (both designers and researchers) and people who wish to learn and share their knowledge to make sure UX research is engaging software engineers, product managers, and executive management.
Tomer is a User Experience Researcher at Google Search and author of the book, It's Our Research. He founded and led UPA Israel and is the co-founder and organizer of leanUXmachine, a weekend of UX learning, collaboration, and mentorship for Israeli startups.
