Designing Intentional User Experiences – our December UX Meetup

Stephen Denning, Director of User Experience (UX) with Edinburgh consultants User Vision is our guest speaker this month. He’s going to talk about how achieving great experiences relate to an organisation’s mindset. The session is Wednesday 13 December.

Designing intentional user experiences – synopsis

We all know good (and bad) experiences when we encounter them.

But why do some organisations consistently deliver great experiences and others consistently disappoint?

Part of the answer is how ‘intentional’ the organisation is about the experience.

Stephen will share his thoughts on this subject, and suggest 3 tips for ensuring we create intentional experiences.
