No one wants poor usability.

We can't achieve a good user experience by just asking users what they want. We need to work with them to find out what they need with prototypes that feel real. Or, better yet, by delivering features and observing users as they use them.

That's why we offer training courses with a lot of practical relevance, in which we not only learn methodological skills, but also share empirical values.

User Experience – our training offer

  • User-centered Design

    Basic training

    In this training you will learn what 'user-centered design' really means. Following the motto 'hands-on', we approach the topic in a practical way through small exercises. This will make it easier to implement in everyday project work.

How Many Test Users in a Usability Study? – „The answer is 5, except when it's not. Most arguments for using more test participants are wrong, but some tests should be bigger and some smaller.“

Why You Only Need to Test with 5 Users – „Some people think that usability is very costly and complex and that user tests should be reserved for the rare web design project with a huge budget and a lavish time schedule. Not true. The best results come from testing no more than 5 users and running as many small tests as you can afford.“
