What the workshop is about

UX in the Jungle is a tabletop game that empowers UX practitioners to see the big picture of product development. It can help them with evangelizing the importance of different UX functions and skills within the organisation. Players in the same team must collaborate to understand requirements, figure out user needs, make trade-offs between different features, manage market change risks, and deal with various other development cycle challenges to release their products on time with good usability and (most important of all) make lots of money with minimal losses.
