The UX of Co-Design: Experience Principles for Successful Client Workshops

Adaptive Path

In the past six months, I've been leading design teams of twenty, sometimes thirty people. Some of these people are designers, but the majority are managers, business strategists, front-line workers, and P&L owners. Together we have been solving big wonky strategy and design problems that matter deeply to how our client will continue to support and grow relationships with their customers in the future. Without carefully designed activities, unhappy groups abound.

Digitization is deceptive in that the deep impact isn’t readily observable. Remember when MOOCs were going to transform higher education?
