Akendi’s UX testing and UX research courses can now be taken as part of the MRS’ CPD programme.
We believe that meaningful experiences are the result of intentionally-directed efforts in user-centred Strategy, Research, Testing and Design.
It's what we do and how we do it that sets us apart. It's what we practise in our consultancy work, and it's what we teach in our remote training courses.
We answer the most critical questions about your product: Is it usable? Is it useful? Is it engaging? Our unique Experience Thinking™ approach elevates your development process by recognizing users and stakeholders as meaningful contributors to the design cycle. The result: powerful insights and creative, evidence-based design solutions that meet real user and customer needs.
We work with your team, often as a "Virtual Experience Team", providing the best resources from our pool of experienced practitioners to complement your existing resource. We are equally happy co-creating a brief, executing it ourselves and returning to you with the insight you need to move forward with your product or service.
REMOTE TRAINING COURSES

We help people to understand human behaviour through user-centred Strategy, Research, Testing and Design.
