Lean UX: When you do Lean UX you come up with hypotheses about design, create minimum viable products/prototypes, then test the hypotheses with your users and make pivot or go/no go decisions. It’s a radical approach to designing user experiences. The result is that you design better and you design faster. You will learn about Lean UX, including: What Lean UX is, and how it is different from other UX processes, How to come up with hypotheses for your projects, How to plan experiments to test the hypotheses, What a minimum viable product is, and What a pivot point is and how to use that for decision making
Behavioral Design Process: When what you want to do is implement behavior change, then the Behavioral Design Process is the best process to use. It takes you through step by step how to decide what the behavioral changes are that you want to make, how to translate that into specific measurable metrics, and how to strategize and test possible solutions.
