What we offer

User-centred design process
A central concept is that of user-centred design, as illustrated below (from ISO 9241-210 - "Human-centred design for interactive systems"). This process provides a structure to many of our seminars/courses, around which domain-specific tools/methods and design examples can be discussed.

Usability Partners provides a range of usability and user-centred design seminars, workshops and courses. These can be tailored to suit the individual requirements of a specific organisation. They can vary in length from several hours to several days, depending upon the depth to which the subject matter is explored.

Titles include

  • "Introduction to usability & user-centred design"
  • "User interface design for ease of use"
  • "Creating web sites that work for users"
  • "Usability testing and evaluation techniques"

Longer seminars and courses include practical exercises and 'hands-on' activities, which are well suited to designers and developers. Shorter seminars are more appropriate for project managers and key decision-makers.
