Define Themes

UX Themes align across groups and stages, achieving a better understanding of the work done through their problems to solve and expected outcomes. They can help identify areas of collaboration when teams are working on overlapping user needs or when cross-workflows are needed, helping to unite stable counterparts, engineering, design, product, and research with a comprehensive approach to executing the category vision.

Dot Voting

An activity in which each individual in a group is given a number of dots that can be each assigned to an alternative which is part of a set of alternatives. By placing colored dots, participants in UX collaborative sessions individually vote on the importance of design ideas, features, usability findings, and anything else that requires prioritization.
