At The Boston User Experience Conference this week, GfK User Experience (UX) experts will explore new approaches to quick, effective UX research, addressing the challenges UX designers face in working with agile teams. Other GfK sessions will focus on managing ethnographic data and leveraging new research techniques.
The event, organized by the UXPA Boston, will take place May 19, 2017, at the Sheraton Boston Hotel. The conference will cover areas such as UX research, design, strategy, service design, and career development.
GfK’s Sarah Bloomer (Senior Vice President of User Experience) will be moderating the panel “Make It Fast: Delivering UX Research to Agile Teams,” with GfK’s Luis Valencia (User Experience Specialist) also participating. The session will focus on how new methods such as unmoderated testing can yield faster UX research, as well as strategies for applying these new solutions. Representatives from Athenahealth, Slalom LLC will also take part in the discussion.
