Facilitating client workshops – online!

Jul 23, 2020
  As a digital-focussed agency, we’ve been fortunate that COVID-19 hasn’t had a huge impact on our day-to-day work, other than missing the human interaction of seeing each other in the office.  But one area has proved difficult to replicate online and left us wishing we could all get together with hundreds of post-its for a face-to-face collaboration session – our client workshops.

But even those 5 people will probably have very different personalities, and as a moderator, you have to be prepared to deal with all of them during each usability testing session.
