I'm trying to propose a way to heighten communication for all departments involved within a new project.
Primarily we build backend administrative systems, however there is a lack of inter departmental cohesion.
I think that proposing a UX Process Storyboard workshop, involving the project manager, product developer, CSS members and developers involved would be a good way for everyone to effectively get on the same wavelength when it comes to a new product.
Currently the functionality, user experience design etc is only carried over to departments by limited technical or concept documentation.
My question is, based on the nature of our company would holding storyboard sessions be the best way for everyone to understand the user journey? I was considering introduction an active brainstorming session, but this workshop is not meant to introduce and new features to the project. Instead such a session is for everyone to understand the user experience, work flows and tasks involved as this will help everyone's understanding throughout the life cycle.
Are there any other type of usability workshops I could hold, would a simple presentation highlighting the persona's of the project, user stories and task analysis be suffice?, any advice would be great.
