Efficient UX
video course

Because you rarely get the freedom to run a perfect all-you-can-eat UX scenario, you have to choose the most effective methods. You need to provide the best results with a reasonable amount of effort, depending on the type of project, the scale, and the budget. 

In this course I teach how to combine methods in a smart way to plan a cost-effective process without compromising your design research and ideation, which are the crucial foundation any successful product is built upon. You will start by seeing what actually drives UX Design and exploring the Double Diamond process and how you can meet the expectations of an actual UX Design, understand how knowledge is the most important aspect of UX, explore cost-effective techniques for your UX Design and create your own cost-effective UX design process for your company.

Section Three

Double Diamond Phase 3

Based on the assumptions from the previous Section, we need to gather insights and come up with different innovative ways.
During this process we - again - will encounter situations, where we decide based on assumptions.

Section FOUR

Double Diamond Phase 2
— VISION

In the second phase of the Double diamond we decide on what we want to build. This answers many of the assumptions we ran into in the later phases.
If we haven’t done our research in phase one correctly, most of these design decicions are based on - you already guessed it ;) - more assumptions.

Section FIVE

Double Diamond Phase 1
— UNDERSTAND

The first phase is all about discovery. You try to surface as much insights from your customers because this is the foundation the whole design process builds on.If you’re not doing this right, you’ll not have the data to design in an informed way at later stages.
