The One-Person UX Team

Techniques and strategies to maximize your impact when you are the sole UX professional on your project or in your organization

What can you do to be successful when you are the entire user experience team on a project or in an entire organization? This course will help you overcome these unique challenges: 

  • Limited time
  • Few, if any, resources
  • Tiny budget
  • Creative isolation
  • Immature UX at the organizational level

As a one-person UX team you must cover your everyday work while also dedicating time to outreach and education of your colleagues, as well as advocating for your users’s needs. We’ve compiled techniques used by successful one-person UX teams. Many of these techniques are not commonly known because the people using them seldom publish their secrets.

As the only person responsible for a big, multi-disciplinary field, you risk becoming the "jack of all trades but master of none" and being spread so thin that you have no deep impact and don't get any management recognition because you only generate superficial design improvements. This course shows how to avoid these pitfalls so that you (a) gain more job satisfaction and (b) produce more value for your employer and (c) grow your team, both in the short term and the long term.

"A very practical course on how to do the UX all by yourself. This gave me a lot of confidence."
