Mobile App Project Kick Off: Get It Right the First Time

The critical steps that need to happen before coding starts are all-too-often brushed over or skipped entirely. Join Jaimee Newberry as she discusses how to identify and gain buy-in and involvement from all the right stakeholders. Because user experience (UX) will make or break every new app, you have to get it right the first time. Jaimee explores brand/product voice and personality questions that help teams quickly map out the direction that affects everything—product experience, visual design, and timing of animations and transitions. Learn how to write copy and where to position it—from alerts to error messages and beyond. Jaimee demonstrates ways to identify your target users; empathize with their wants and needs; create user personas; and map out the most important UX scenarios. Jaimee addresses feature prioritization and discusses the secrets of great team communication. Walk away prepared to kick off a new product or evaluate your current project’s trajectory to ensure development is on the right track.
