January Chapter Meeting--UX, UI and Human Centered Design; What’s the Big Deal?

January Chapter Meeting--UX, UI and Human Centered Design; What’s the Big Deal?

UX, UI and Human Centered Design; What’s the Big Deal?

Modernization digitization, process automation and reengineering projects all involve inputs and outputs. Too often the project teams focus on the inputs and outputs without considering the people who will use them. This results in confusion, stress, lost productivity and rework as people struggle to get their work done in a system that does not meet their needs. Human centered design (HCD) incorporates the human perspective in all steps of the problem-solving process, often resulting in a solution that both satisfies the business needs and the people who use it.

This session will explore and explain the basics of human centered design (HCD) with a focus on tools and techniques you can bring back to your daily work. We will look back at the origins of HCD, understand the current tools and industry leaders, and look forward at some of the industries and careers that are being transformed by this growing movement. Understanding HCD will impact how you look at people, problems and projects.

Come network, interact, meet experts, visit colleagues, bring a friend, discover techniques, win prizes, meet recruiters, and connect with hiring managers looking for project management professionals in the Capital District.
