We still have places remaining on our Web and Intranet Usability Course on 13 September in central London. This course is ideal for development teams, managers and those wanting to move into or already getting started in usability. For experienced usability practitioners, the course provides practical activities that can be used with teams to help sell the case for usability and user-centred design.

Our two people-skills courses have been combined into a single day, focusing on communicating and negotiating with emotional intelligence (Gordon Brown could have done with this according to Tony Blair’s autobiography!)

We recently completed an interesting usability and user experience evaluation of a SharePoint collaboration site for a European Central Bank. It involved a design review and usability testing with internal users. We discovered some challenging issues around terminology and people’s perception of some of the solutions (‘a blog? I couldn’t possibly use that for a serious project at work’). Get in touch if you need usability, accessibility or user experience expertise.
