Workshop: Crafting the Discovery Phase: First Steps in Effective UX projects

Discovery is the portion of the project that incorporates research, analysis, exploration, and planning to align teams around a foundation. This foundation is the bedrock of subsequent design activities. It gives design teams a way to answer questions and validate their ideas. It reminds project participants what’s in scope and out of scope. It constitutes the collective background knowledge informing your specific product. Great discovery phases make for great projects. This workshop will help participants craft the perfect discovery phase.


  • The essential ingredients for any discovery phase
  • The range of discovery activities and how to choreograph them
  • What deliverables come out of the discovery phase
  • How to incorporate discovery into new projects and projects in-flight.
