The discovery phase of a UX design project is a dedicated amount of time spent defining the problem to be solved, understanding the needs of users, and learning about any technology and business constraints before any design or development takes place.
"Discovery was a whole new thing to me, I learned a lot today."
Ingrid Pigueron, Freelance, Paris, France
"Discovery is foundational to good design! As a content strategist, I'd done discoveries before, but this class gave me new tools, tips, and things to think about. I can't wait to put this to use at work and add more rigor to our content design org."
Sarah Mohs, Intuit, Minneapolis, MN
"Maria is very knowledgeable and the course structure was perfect for my needs: a mix of teaching, individual and team activities, as well as real life examples. It gave me insights about how to structure my future discovery sessions and most important, what to do/don't do to make them work. I will certainly be able to apply these learnings on my day to day job. Thanks!"
"Maria made the course easy to follow highlighting what a Discovery should and shouldn't contain, with case studies to illustrate different areas. It was very helpful that Maria answered our various questions so that we could relate the knowledge to our own situations. Thank you very much."
Erika Street, UK
"Extremely valuable knowledge. Everything here was without doubt use to me and improve the way I work."
Ian Merry，Esure Insurance，Surrey，英国
Roberta de Medeiros Fernandes，Serpro，Refife
"Even if you have loads of Discovery Experience, this will help you frame it all in a nice measured and marketable package. It is always great to see how others are working and the interaction with other students was hugely useful."
Susan Janes-Johnson, Regions Bank, Birmingham, U.S.
"Really loved the organisation of this course and the incorporated activities. Maria was an excellent teacher and the materials were well presented with further readings, references and resources provided at every stage. I am new to this area, so I gained an awful lot of new knowledge. Thank you so much! Course ran super smoothly and Rachel worked in such perfectly timed sync with Maria, that all of the related links, polls break-outs were added with pin-point accuracy. Brilliant teamwork."

“非常好的过程本身和伟大的在线体验 - 我期待一些技术困难并面临没有。谢谢！”
"I am very grateful to have taken this course with Maria Rosala. Maria is a brilliant presenter; She covers the material at just the right speed, in just the right depth, making sure to never rush and ensure everyone clearly understands the content before moving on."
"I learnt a great deal not just about how to run discoveries, but also how to convince stakeholders that it is crucial. The instructor was great, and answered our questions very well!"
Tan Sei Yee, Government Technology Agency, Singapore
"Makes you realise how important it is to understand and define the problem statement and the different ways to arrive at it."
Deb Ghosh, UK
"Great primer on how to get started on projects to identify and uncover what you don't know, and align stakeholders on what you are hoping to achieve."
"This course filled my back pockets with a lot of tactical strategies to frame problems, and scale the discovery process upon, as opposed to rolling the ball with business requirements that are built based on assumptions about what the right solution is, oftentimes with full of biases. As a solo-person-team, I've also learned that the discovery phase will be much more effective in a collective effort, and not in isolation."
Constanza Schmidt，Gopro，San Mateo，加利福尼亚州
"This course is worth taking to know the ins and outs of discoveries, and how everything comes together with stakeholders, user research and delivery."
Tia Escobar, UXC, Web.com Group, Jacksonville, FL
"This course filled in some gaps in my knowledge about the Discovery phase, and offered concrete tools I can use moving forward. It was well-paced and covered about as much information as i could absorb in a day. Maria and Kim managed the online format incredibly well, further cementing my preference over in-person conferences."
图尔亨德森 - 帕尔默，伦敦，英国区
"Any designer/researcher who is working on a new project should take this class."
"This course is a great way to stretch your brain while learning how to become a better problem solver."
Allison Luetschwager, Delta Dental of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, WI
"This course went really well. I've attended in person in the past and I found that I didn't miss the in-person aspect as much as I thought I would. For example, the group exercises went really well, I met new people and I felt like part of a team. Overall there was a really good balance between group exercises and the lecture component."
“我内华达州er know how valuable a true discovery phase is until I took this course. This should be a requirement for all UX and business professionals."
"This feels like a very valuable course to take sooner than later in your UX career. I feel I am now set up with a strong foundation to save time in the future and focus on the right problems from the start. Thank you Maria!"
"It was extremely interactive which is difficult to achieve with the current virtual status. Both the speaker and moderator did a wonderful job facilitating the session and I was able to come out with a higher understand of the upfront research process and I can take these skills/insights back to my team."
"This is a great course. It changed my view on discovery with a framework, information on activities, on schedule and on artifacts. I feel more confident next time I start a UX project!"
Trinise Luster, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Atlanta
Georges Klopotowski, Escient, Melbourne, Australia
"I benefited from the course since the instructor was full of experience and knowledge and clearly delivered important points. I would recommend this to other people since it's a great chance to learn more outside of daily work and to think about how I can improve my current work process."
"I found the case studies and given examples directly applicable to my role as a user researcher working to define a discovery phase at my company; the mix of group work and lessons gave me an opportunity to flex new learnings in an applied setting, which was perfect for cementing learnings."
"Essential course for those who want to make a product that really matters. You'll learn how to frame your problem, research it and come up with user issues that need to be addressed, not a pack of features to be built."
"I learned how to employ, run, and, convice my team and stakeholders to embrace discovery before we move into solutioning ideas."
"For somebody who has a good theoretical knowledge of Discoveries but minimal practical experience of having conducted them, this course was absolutely amazing. Fear of failure due to lack of adequate experience held me back over the years from reaching out to decision-makers to initiate conversations on and persuade them for conducting discoveries. This course has given me the much-needed confidence to not just persuade them but also to help conduct them with the team (including the stakeholders) in the true spirit and the right manner. Thanks a ton, Maria."
