  • Understand how to create interface designs that are easy to use through a structured and user-centred development process.
  • Discover how to integrate appropriate activities into your design and development work.
  • Learn about effective tools and methods for efficiently improving your user interface designs.
  • Better address your user needs, focus your design effort, improve product quality and rise above your competitors.

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, or in some cases can be run part-time over several weeks (depending upon the needs of participants and the depth to which topics are explored).

Titles include

  • "Introduction to UX, usability & user-centred design for development teams"
  • "UX/usability strategy and process for project managers"
  • "Web UX - creating sites that work"
  • "Usability measures and KPIs"
  • "User-based testing and evaluation techniques"

Longer courses include practical exercises and 'hands-on' activities, which are well suited to designers and developers. Shorter and more focused activities can be tailored to fit the needs of project managers, product owners and key decision-makers.
