Testimonials

The Lean-er UX Workshop gave a much better and more achievable methodology of integrating into real-life projects and being successful with strategy and metrics.


Marli Ritter, UX Lead

I found the Lean-er UX Workshop to be insightful, practical, and extremely good at addressing the corporate template of approaching products and their design with a flawed, preconceived list of features. It truly helps you to realize how to better draw value from discussing, planning, and designing products that work in a relevant way.

Too often we rely on the conventional wisdom of others without question. Our industry is based on validation and doing what works. Clients demand Lean but rarely understand the implications.
After taking the Lean-er UX Workshop, you'll see that it's OK to call out what doesn't work about your process. Lean-er UX puts the "rapid" into rapid prototyping. Everett's Law of Agile "Potentially shippable code is never thrown away" really resonates with me. Thanks! It was a really great workshop.

Loved it! I really enjoyed the Lean-er UX Workshop. I found it really insightful and will definitely take alot of what I learned to my projects. Thank you!

I found the Lean-er UX Workshop to be very valuable as a developer trying to transition into a more design-focused role. Was interested in knowing how to apply development tactics into a design sprint, and how to present or sell ideas and designs without having a functional product.

I have attended Everett's talks in the past and always walk away feeling more empowered.

The Lean-er UX Workshop was interactive and it challenges normal design conventions with impressive and innovative results. The team exercises were fun too!

Kirsty Nater
Everett's UX Design Essentials Workshop was fun, informative, and incredibly helpful. I learned a great deal about UX design and usability testing, along with their importance—not just through the lectures but through the hands-on exercises as well. I know that I will apply this new knowledge to my future work and design much better products!

Mr. McKay's understanding of the material for UX Design Essentials is very strong. We worked through the basics of UX design (with many examples, both good and bad) and I am now better armed to start attacking our future design activities.

Rob Hunt, L-3 Engineer

UX Design Essentials Workshop was concise and well thought out, making the instruction very easy to understand. It takes many things that I've felt was only intuitions on design, and put them into a strong and useful context.

Steve Yen, Software Engineer
L-3 Communications
Everett provided powerful and practical design techniques that can be used by engineers with little or no design expertise. His recommendations will no doubt improve the design process at our company.

Thaddeus Konicki, Senior Systems Engineer
L-3 Communications
Everett was extremely helpful in getting our organization oriented in the basics of UX design. We are falling short in this area and I now feel like we have a basis of understanding and a vocabulary to improve that!

Pat Sherlock, Solutions Architect

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about UX design training, but I was very surprised and delighted that Everett was able to address user experience design from all aspects of the process, including my specialty: mechanical engineering. I appreciated his perspective, experience, and helping us to move into the 21st Century!

Mike Gartland, Mechanical Engineer
L-3 Communications
UX Design Essentials was one of the most clear, concise, and powerful workshops that I have attended. Everett made a subjective topic down to earth and substantially much more objective. As a bonus, Everett gave the best Lunch and Learn talk I have ever attended at L-3.

Tim Kowalczyk, Principal Software Engineer
L-3 Communications
The UX design process of using scenarios, personas, and value propositions is a great direction for design. The design principles and guidelines will be very helpful in my next design project. Usability testing opened my eyes to good and bad design.

Marc Thomson, Software Engineer
L-3 Communications
Everett's workshop was very interactive and well organized, with a touch of humor. He helped me understand the basic concepts of UI design. A+ rating!

I found UX Design Essentials Workshop to be a valuable source of ideas and training that will help our team improve its products. This course defined vague concepts like "intuitive" UIs in terms of simple but concrete concepts that can be objectively reviewed and implemented. (This was one of the most important takeaways.) I also learned a number of design and test review concepts that I am eager to employ. I wish I had taken this training two years ago!

Ron Gebhardt, Technical Director

UX Design Essentials Workshop takes a common sense approach to UX design. The class is applicable to novice and expert designers. Everett's pacing is perfect.

UX Design Essentials Workshop was a very worthwhile and beneficial course. I learned a lot about UX design and appreciate that I now have new tools to use when making and evaluating other's designs. I recommend this workshop for all software engineers, developers, and their managers.

Ed Veres, Systems Engineer
L-3 Communications
UX Design Essentials Workshop was fast paced but filled with practical, hands-on exercises. This really helped our team understand the concepts. Everett provided great insights. He used examples to help use change our thought process or understand a concept.
My favorite was the use of scenario-based design. It made obvious why our discussions were previously mostly around personal opinions. We now have the tools we need to improve our design process.


Nat Teissier, Software Engineering Manager
L-3 Communications
Everett's workshop had a great balance of instruction and exercises. I think that more than a few people in the training started out as skeptics. However, his "no nonsense" approach to explaining the techniques was effective. A few people remarked during the breaks how eye-opening the training has been and how much they appreciated it. It definitely showed us a lot of things we could do better as an organization.
