Lunch Talk with Dan Berlin - Moderating a one-on-one interview to elicit the most actionable data is an acquired skill. A primary aspect of this, which we don’t normally talk about, is the tone, timbre, and pace of our voice. Some say that a moderator should try to match the participant’s tone; that this makes the participant feel that you are similar to him or her.

Come learn more about UX Strategy and what that means.
Does it mean having a proper user-centered Lean design process? Does it mean embedding UX into a corporate culture through education and metrics? Does it mean getting sign off or selling UX to the C-Suite? Find out the answer by coming to the first meetup for Boston Strategy.
In the world of design, qualitative research methodologies are well codified, taught, and practiced. However, the foundational facilitation skills used with these methodologies are not always given as much attention.
In this workshop, we’ll learn and practice a variety of deceptively deep facilitation skills and techniques ranging from active listening to body language awareness, skills for making different learner types speak more and even skills for getting over-active participants to speak less. All of these techniques can help us to be more effective researchers, managers, and...
