About This Workshop

Developing a deep understanding of users’ behavior, thoughts, needs, and desires helps design teams solve well-defined problems. Without identifying these core problems and opportunities, launching a product or service is simply a stab in the dark. User research is the means by which we foster this understanding. It focuses on developing direct connections to end users in order to make sense of their everyday lives, learn about their frustrations, and determine potential solutions to improve their experience with just about anything.

General Assembly’s classes, workshops and events are recreational and for avocational purposes only. No certificate is awarded.
