How well do you know your users? Growing an agile, lean company with great UX research.
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Keeping the user at the heart of your focus ensures you're understanding real problems in context rather than building solutions and hoping they stick. In a fast moving entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial environment it can be challenging to keep research a top priority. In this session Jo will share how research can inform product design and create empathy for user problems in a way that increases your strategic resilience in the market, and resonates with your intended user base.
