UX CASE STUDY


Shhh. . . It's a top secret!

I've been working on a confidential Canadian nationwide project. While I cannot publish it due to signing a non-disclosure agreement, the lessons I learned and my high-level overview are well worth sharing.

UX PROCESS

I think Agile and Design Thinking are an excellent problem-solving combination. In some cases, the Waterfall model could work superbly. It's about seeing what needs to be done. I am flexible enough to adapt the UX Process when the project calls for it.

On a daily basis, I also run remote design workshops so that potential solutions emerge from the collaborative sessions.
