Task Analysis Boot Camp-What You Need To Know Before Design

If you want to design a website, application, software, or mobile app that is easy to use and has a great user experience, then you should be creating task analyses of the most important tasks the users will take with your product. 

You'll learn how to outline the entire user experience of your product BEFORE you design with a task analysis.

How task analysis is critical to design

How to decide what to do a task analysis on

Different formats you can use to create a task analysis

Who to invite to a task analysis session

The difference between current and optimized task analyses

How to decide whether to do a "blue-sky" analysis or one with constraints
