Join us on Thursday, October 25 at WeWork St. James in downtown Boston. Network and discover how lean user research and usability testing can take your product to the next level!
Enjoy complimentary beverages and snacks with product managers, UX researchers, and designers from Liberty Mutual while learning about the most effective methods of user research for every stage of product development. You’ll also get to put several of these approaches into action by answering exploratory questions, test-driving two new features of a mobile app, and sharing your feedback. Meet members of a dedicated, 60-person user experience team, and participate in fun, interactive user research activities!
