Action Design Miami: Behavioral Economics 101 for Product Design

August 20, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-5

On August 20, Dr. Stephen Wendel, Head of Behavioral Science at Morningstar, will introduce you to the ideas of behavioral economics and offer practical techniques you can use in any products you’re interested in or creating.
In Stephen’s talk, you will:
• Learn about behavioral economics and its cousin, the psychology of judgment and decision-making
• See how its lessons are already being applied in consumer products from the Jawbone UP to Clocky the rolling clock
• Understand how habits fit in and when they can smooth the path to action
• Find out how to identify the behavioral obstacles your users face and overcome them.
Stephen’s talk will teach you how to help your users take action, using the best research out there on decision-making and how it’s been applied in the real world.
A huge thank you to Rokk3r Labs for hosting us!
