The Description

In the field of User Experience there are dishonest practices, misnomers, claims of special knowledges, and required skills that are touted as being common knowledge™ or best practices™. These biases or trappings are often encountered when working with various clients, project managers, product managers, designers, and even developers.

This webinar will focus on the prevailing quackery that exists in the field of UX when working with various stakeholders, performing research, or conducting user testing  and what UX professionals can do to weed-out the quacks.
