    Activities in User-Centered Design

    Our March meeting on user-centered design got rave reviews, so put your thinking caps on, grab your purple crayons and come join us on Saturday, May 19th to explore more activities from the Design Sprint book that you may find useful when doing user-centered design.

    At the March meeting, we worked through an approach to user-centered design and constructed a user journey map for a Northwest Network new joiner. We’ll use that as an input to our May meeting, when we will:

    • Confirm our understanding of the new joiner experience
    • Create a vision of what we want new joiners and seasoned folks to experience in the future
    • Generate ideas for making that happen
    • Select and refine a short list of ideas
    • Plan the way forward

    If you’re new to user-centered design or have experience to share, this is a great chance to dig in and apply some tools to a real business challenge that will add to the sustainability of the Northwest Network.


    Good things to know:

    • New event fee structure! $5 for members and $10 for non-members.
    • Breakfast is available for $13 at the hotel (purchase at the hotel).
    • You can now pay online! That's the preferred way, but if you'd rather pay in person, that's okay, too, with cash or a check made out to Becky Lucas.
    • Meeting after the meeting! Join us for lunch at The Assembly after the event.
