Workshop: unite content skills and agile methods to improve people’s lives
At this half-day workshop you’ll learn to unite your content skills with agile methods from the world of product design. Across corporations, charities and the government, digital teams are discovering that effective content is essential to experiences that work for users. Instead of performing outdated functions like “publishing information”, today’s content professionals combine their skills with agile methods from the world of product design. That means creating prototypes quickly, testing with users and learning from feedback—while working closely with colleagues in design, development and research. The end result? Digital services that are simple, clear and fast. And the chance to use your content skills to improve people’s lives. This workshop is for content professionals who want to learn how to apply techniques from agile product development to create user-centred content. You’ll learn how to: • use contextual research techniques to discover user needs • capture user needs using "user stories" and customer journey maps • use pair writing to create content that meets the needs you discovered • test content with users and iterate based on their feedback ABOUT THE TRAINER Jonathan Kahn created Agile Content Conf in 2015 and since then has trained hundreds of content professionals to apply agile methods to digital content. He organises the London Agile Content Meetup (over 2000 members) and has presented at content conferences internationally, including Confab in Minneapolis, Content Strategy Forum in Cape Town, and EuroIA in Rome. FEEDBACK FROM PAST WORKSHOPS People who attended past workshops said: “Pair writing can actually be helpful- it’s nowhere near as scary as I thought!“ “It’s easy to lose the knack of talking to users and testing content with them. I found it really useful to try out some quick, simple techniques that I can put into practice straight away.” “The main thing I’m taking away is the importance of checking and testing content with the user to prevent making erroneous assumptions and missing important details.”
