About the workshop
We know content that meets audience needs is key to user-centred design. But under pressure to get the work done it can get neglected, copied over wholesale during a migration, or written with business needs – not user needs – in mind. Wouldn’t it be better if you could help an organisation discuss the value of the content and, if need be, say no?
We’ve developed a simple tool to help you identify that sweet spot where content meets user needs and business objectives. It lets you take representative (or controversial!) content and score it against audience needs and organisational objectives. It then highlights if there is a mismatch between the two. This can be used to inform conversations about whether the content is doing its job – and if not, why not.
In this workshop we'll give you a chance to try using an interactive, Lego-based version of the tool to have conversations about user-centred content.
