What is a Stakeholder and Business Workshop?
Stakeholder Workshops or “Business” Workshop are a set of user experience methods to extract valuable information to understand the client, user and product requirements. A workshop is a meeting at which a group of professionals engage in comprehensive discussion and activity on a particular subject or project. We normally use these methods at the start of any new product, project or programme. There are different method types for different projects.
Why do we run Stakeholder Workshops?
We run Stakeholder Workshops to help to extract, capture and start defining:

- Digital environment
Workshops are designed to help every participant to collaborate and have fun, while we are extracting important and valuable information to help to support the requirement gathering.
What types of Stakeholder Workshops do we run?
We run different types of workshops depending on the business needs. Some of the most common workshops are:
