Conversational interfaces are integrated into many modern smartphones and standalone appliances for the home. As this technology has become increasingly mainstream, it has driven a growing interest in the subject of conversation design and given birth to the new discipline of Conversational UX (CUX). But what exactly is this new field all about and how is it connected with traditional UX design? What is the job of a CUX designer? What knowledge is required to design a successful conversation with a machine? How can conversations with other natural interfaces be integrated within the general framework of multimodality? And the most important question: What is conversation?

About This Workshop

Very few of us graduate from school with a clear idea of what we want our careers to look like. Even when we think we know what we want, there are all sorts of obstacles to landing the right job. And worst of all, when we’ve finally gotten that job that we think will make us happy, it doesn’t. This leads to dissatisfaction and under-performance…and the process begins again.

A Gallup study found that nearly 70% of people feel disengaged by their work. In other words, they work because they have to, not because they want to. If that sounds like you, then join us for this solution-oriented workshop. We will help you to discover what matters most when it comes to finding inspiring work. We’ll then teach you a clear and compelling approach to find, and get, a job you love faster. It won’t happen all at once, of workshop, but this workshop can jumpstart your journey towards finding joy and meaning in your work.

This workshop will be hosted online due to safety considerations, please check out the “Preparation” section on the bottom of this page. Registered participants will be notified in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the workshop.

About This Class

Consumer empathy. It’s the key to successful product strategy, design, and marketing. Through it, we find unanswered questions, unmet needs, and idea­ catalyzing behaviors. But building a business, product, or service around a point­-in-­time understanding of your consumer is a strategy destined to fail. To successfully create an offering that dramatically shifts behavior, organically generates habitual engagement, and promotes a profitable viral cycle, we must first understand the consumer journey.

This introductory workshop will teach you a multidisciplinary approach to consumer journey mapping research, design, and implementation. Having successfully designed and implemented consumer journey maps for clients like Anthem Blue Cross, Sprint, Target, and Taco Bell, this team of subject matter experts will use real project expertise to equip you with the approach, tools, and knowledge to successfully employ consumer journey mapping in product design, service design, marketing, and business design.

Takeaways

Participants of this workshop will learn:

● Where and how to find the necessary data and research inputs to customer journey maps ● Proven consumer journey map design methodologies used for major brands and products ● How to implement consumer journey maps as shown by real business case studies

  • Workshop attendees will receive a full recording of the entire session for their reference.

Preparation

  • You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection.
  • This course will occur completely online using Zoom and Slack.
  • Course set up information will be emailed to all students signed up around 24 hours before (and again an hour before) your course launches.
