Love them or loath them, meetings are here to stay. So we need to get better at managing meetings and turn them from a productivity sink to a productivity booster. Enter the creative workshop.
By re-positioning yourself as a ‘design facilitator’ rather than a ‘design executer’, you will raise your profile, increase your influence and have a greater affect on product strategy. As such this is a must-do workshop for any and all user experience practitioners wanting to take their careers to the next level.
Stakeholder workshops are hands-on by nature, so the best way to teach these skills is through active participation. Participants will learn how to plan and moderate stakeholder workshops and how to perform a series of co-design activities or “design games” with stakeholders.
