NEW! CIC UX Workshop

User Experience for Business

Cross-disciplinary workshop run by CIC, aimed at helping you get the most out of UX in your organisation for 2017.

User Experience is fast becoming recognised as the critical success factor when it comes to building software. For customers it is often what decides whether they choose your app and then continue to use it. For businesses it is about increasing productivity, better adoption and competitive advantage.

With ROI so tied-in to the ability to deliver high quality UX, it’s not an exaggeration to say that, in the future, the company with the software that delivers the best experience will win.

CIC has carried out a lot of research in this area down the years, recognising trends that are also reflected in Principle Analyst Clive Howard’s recent book ‘UX Lifecycle: the business guide to implementing great software user experiences’. You can get an introduction to our UX research in Clive’s post about rethinking about UX for 2017.

Drawing on both the content of the book and our own extensive knowledge, CIC is delighted to offer you the chance to book a UX workshop with our team of experts. This is ideal for businesses at all stages of their UX journey but especially for those who appreciate the importance of experience but are not sure where to start.
