User-centred design puts user needs at the centre of your project. Teams that take time to fully understand these needs are much more likely to build the right thing at the right time, avoiding unnecessary restarts and wasted effort.  At Made Tech we’ve seen teams can really improve their chances of delivering a good service by:

  • Approaching the project from a user-led perspective right from the start
  • Selecting activities that create buy-in and change decision making
  • Prioritising relationships with stakeholders and decision makers

In this webinar, UCD Principal Joanne Moore will share practical tips on how user-centred design can have an immediate impact on your service, as well as save time and resources in the long run.

Top tips:

  • Set a clear brief
  • Share updated information
  • Plan for setbacks
  • Focus on what matters and act accordingly

Important information:

  • Hosted via Zoom webinar
  • A Q&A will happen at the end
