UX Training: Learn The Basics Of Product Design In 3 Days
We set your team in motion.
Players like Facebook, Apple and Google have a reason to invest so massively in their UX teams. By bringing the UX mindset into your organization, you can upskill your team for better and faster results, including better software.
During our 3-day trainings, our UX Designers and Researchers come to your company for three days to train your team and share the findings from our experience working with clients like HBO and T-Mobile.
In-house UX design and research training
Taught in our office or your location and fully customized for your organization, your team will work side-by-side with world-class UX designers during this intensive workshop series.
What our students say:
"The ratio of theoretical and practical parts was perfectly proportioned. We wanted to bring practical UX experience to the team, so we were glad to be ‘pushed into’ live interviews with users! It was really life-like."
Build better software by doing user research first
This training demonstrates how to build UX design into the work of an agile development team and to build an efficient product development team. Thanks to the practical approach, participants can try out the lessons they’ve learned.
Solidify the internal UX mindset at your company (e.g., among product managers, developers, designers or content creators) by providing everyone with a deep understanding of user behavior.
Best UI/UX practices in product development
During three-day intensive UX training, we go through the design process of a digital product.
Using brief presentations and case studies, we describe the individual planning steps: getting to know the users, design processes, screens and research methods for validating design works.
You don’t need a web design degree or UX certification to know how to apply the UX approach to your team. Always keeping the user in focus and applying the right tools and methods at the right time hold the key.
UX training daily schedule
During the three-day training, we also go through the entire UX design process, and we get to know more about the methods by going through real-life examples. After that, everyone can lead their own practical project. Prototyping with a design software also makes up part of this training.
The first day involves acquiring a basic knowledge of the UX approach and methods. In this spirit, we look at the product design process stages.
We discuss the basics of user research, interview and test planning, user personas and journeys. Then come the concepts of the jobs to be done and value proposition, along with goal-setting and process planning.
We also set a fulfillable goal for the three days: What feature of what product will we all work on, using it as an example?
The second day, we put all the new knowledge in action. We review the user journey of the product in question and get a taste of effective product feature prioritization.
Then, we set out designing actual screens! First we do it on paper, and then using a prototyping software. In the afternoon, we start building our prototype.
We end the training with a dramatic final day! After reviewing the prototypes, we get into nitty-gritty details of usability testing and write interview scripts together.
Then, in the afternoon, real-life users arrive to test what we have worked on in the past two days.
After that, we review the prototypes based on the newly acquired user insights and discuss the next steps together.

What will you have learned by the end of the UI/UX training?
1. Collecting user insight
You must know your users. This will guide you to build digital products people will love. During the course, we will teach you how to systematically learn about users and to use this information during a design process.
2. Planning UX processes
UX design plans a full user experience by its very design. We look at what processes our users are going through and consciously build them for this reason. You should also plan how you will onboard your users and make regular use of it.
User journey planning
Onboarding, learning curve
3. UX research
No good design comes without research. We will introduce observation-based methods that can help you get feedback on your plans.
We show you the methods and tricks we have learned from the cases of popular companies such as Facebook, or Google. We help you find out when to use which one.
Presentation and comparison of methods
Field research, contextual inquiry
Usability test, user test
Guerrilla, remote and mobile testing practices
Five-second test, card sorting
A / B testing
4. Screen design
To get the most out of the ideas we need, we need tools that help sketch them out quickly.
We do not teach manuals or software management in the course, but we show you when and how testing and communicating our ideas merits the effort.
Paper-based, low-fidelity and high-fidelity wireframes
A brief introduction to using the Axure design program
Differences between desktop and mobile devices
UX writing and microcopy
5. Agile and lean design
How does this design process fit into the agile software development environment? We summarize the lean UX process and give examples of what this means in different types of companies.
WWe present some typical example projects and talk about how to communicate with whom on your UX team.
What makes your daily work agile or lean?
Design processes step-by-step
Iterations, short and long-cycle projects
Landing page example process
We target our UX training at everyone. It requires no design preparation or knowledge, meaning we also welcome developers, business people and other team members.
The three-day training suits you if:
Your team struggles with innovation, design or product management;
You would like your team to acquire a whole new skill set in just a few days; or
You want to up your existing user experience design game.
Here's how to imagine what it's like to attend one of our trainings:
Three full days, from morning until late afternoon
At your location or in our Budapest headquarters
Modular structure – theoretical introductions followed by practice
Available for smaller groups (5-10 participants)
On-site workshops and practice
Why learn from a UX company instead of an online course?
Usability holds the key to great customer experience. As a UX company, we made this our number one priority. We comprise a team of like-minded professionals forming multiple teams based on our skills.
Mid and large-sized companies can greatly benefit from an external team’s view on current processes and tasks. A UX agency can provide additional insights on how to improve product design and give you fresh ideas and unbiased advice to create a successful product.
UX companies use the best and most up-to-date practices in the field, so the outcome will reflect on the latest trends of user behavior.

New to user experience design?
When American CEOs echo how important they regard design, many think about cool shiny interfaces. But it gets more complicated than that. As Steve Jobs used to say: “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”
So, besides the aesthetic outlook, how the interface works in the user’s hands plays a critical role in design. What will the users see first and notice later? What processes will they go through? Where do we want to direct their attention? How will they understand things? What will they remember us for?
The beautiful appearance forms just the tip of the iceberg. A good UX designer can help in far more profound questions that might turn out to play an important role from a business perspective as well.
So now you have got the right ingredients, but the directions also play a critical role. The team must use the best methods available. A design process will enable the team to deliver the results. Establishing a design team with the right methods can improve the performance of your product sprint by sprint.
