Ideas, Insights & Innovation - An introduction to User Centred Design

Ideas are a stepping stone to innovation, but without real insights into the end user you run the risk of making a product no one wants or is unfit for purpose.  To develop a successful product or service you must understand the needs, expectations, motivations, and frustrations of the user.
In this webinar we will look at the first stages of user centred design and provide some practical tools that can be used. Following on from this taster webinar there will be an opportunity for a 1:1 workshop to explore how these methods can be directly applied to your sector, business or Idea.
