Learn To Design Seamless User Experiences - The Essentials of User Experience Design

As a Product Manager you are responsible for delivering great customer experiences to create products that customers love. Unfortunately this isn't a trivial task so Brainmates and UX Mastery have teamed up to create a special Master Class to help you.
Product Experience includes the customer’s interaction with the product or service. In order to excel at our jobs, Product Management professionals must have the ability to engage and work closely with UX (User eXperience) practitioners to design seamless and usable customer interactions.

The Agile Project Manager Workshop, 24 November, Sydney

The agile project manager needs to have great communication, conflict resolution and negotiation skills. In fact, the most desired skills when recruiting project managers are stakeholder management and flexibility.
After this one-day course you’ll know when to use agile (and when not) and have the confidence, knowledge and tools & techniques needed to deliver a successful project from start to finish. A special focus is on soft skills so you can manage change, collaborate and deal confidently with the team and stakeholders.

LaVolta is always happy to support these Project Management courses as we understand Project Managers operate at times in a pressure-cooker environment of endless changes, looming deadlines, and escalating demands from stakeholders.  Delivering a successful digital project be that web, mobile, eCommerce or intranet is a real skill and traditional project approaches just don’t work.

This workshop is led by the highly respected Vishy Narayanan who is an experienced Project and Global Commerce Manager.  The interactive 1 day course gives you everything you need to deliver projects on time and on budget and you'll learn how to limit scope creep, change requests, minimise risk, identify red flags and how to recover from problems as well as take away essential tools such as templates and documentation.
