Your UX introduction course helped our company in two key areas which we sorely needed. First, it helped our employees understand that UX and design are not solely the domain of the designer. In the past our developers never thought they could express their opinion or how best to elaborate their concerns. Since the class our employees now take an active part throughout the brainstorming and design process and their passion and interest is at an all-time high. You can sense the ownership and dedication because everybody believes that they own the product and are a part of the process.
Secondly, from a more practical standpoint, the process, tools, and best practices you taught us provided us with a great foundation to figure out what works best for our company. As a startup we cannot do everything. However going through and practicing every single step gave us a better appreciation of why each step exists. It helped us make clear choices with confidence as we understood the pros and cons of why we would do certain steps as part of our design process.
We just completed the first design of a very complex user dashboard and I can say with certainty that without the UX course it would have taken twice as long and produced something nowhere near as easy to use or even as beautiful.

When we finished you could hear all our employees saying just how proud they were and I look forward to the many more changes we will make in the future on our site.
