Anthropology is known as the “science of humanity.” Key elements include an in-depth examination of people and places, immersion in the area of interest, and the significance of observation. Our High-Tech Anthropologists® study end-users in their own work environment, observe and ask questions around their current systems and processes, and use workflows and mind-maps to capture and distill information to create designs focused on the goals of the target users.
In this two-day workshop, you will be immersed in the High-Tech Anthropology® process and discover how to design a joyful user-experience. With a team of Menlo’s High-Tech Anthropologists®, you will gain hands-on experience with interviews, observations, writing personas and using them to prioritize users, as well as iterative design and evaluation of solutions. In addition, the new virtual workshop format also highlights specific alterations that can be made to this process for both in-person and remote settings.
Sure, joy sounds great, but how does it affect the bottom line? Why should we care about it in a business context?
In this customizable session, immerse yourself in the business value of joy. This experience includes a virtual tour of “the factory” and plenty of time for discussion and questions. We’ll provide an experience tailored for your group on a topic of your choosing. Some examples might include: building the culture you really want, using High-Tech Anthropology® to create products people want to use, hiring the right people through Extreme Interviewing, using visual management to plan and track projects, how to promote collaboration in your work environment, and pursuing democratic leadership.
