Create what matters.
Test what counts

Learn the methods and tools designed to purposefully create what matters in organisations. 

Explore the tension between the design process and quality assurance.
Join us for a lively discussion on how human-centred design (HCD) and quality assurance can be integrated to accelerate software delivery and create beautiful customer experiences that count.

Often considered at different ends of the delivery spectrum, human centred-design (HCD) and quality assurance are seldom thought of as companion disciplines.

During the webinar, you will:

  • Engage in a lively discussion on how these two varied disciplines can be integrated to accelerate software delivery and create beautiful customer experiences that count.
  • Learn methods to effectively 'close the loop' for you inside your organisation, ensuring customer insights are seamlessly transferred into delivery cycles to unlock the optimal value
  • Gain insights that matter to your development teams so they truly understand the moments that matter most to your customers
  • Understand what happens when your rigour of quality assurance is embedded into fluid HCD processes
  • Hear practical case study examples of applied disciplines in action and discover unique insights to help propel your organisation forward
