So, try as I might, being a new UX developer, I'm trying to find reputable data about reputable companies who saved/made [insert actual dollar figure], and how usability testing was responsible. I was actually told at work today that "there is no way you can prove that usability testing makes money." It's a personal challenge now.
Does anyone know if there's a report about that estimates the total size of the usability/UX market. I managed to find one report that puts a figure on the UK market size, but can't seem to see anything about the global market.
I am considering some UX training and am interested in either the CUA training offered by HFI or the UXD "Mini-Masters" program at Rutgers. Any thoughts on either of these programs? Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time or money to put into this training but am looking for a good overview program and something that I can put on my resume.
Thanks in advance for your input; here are links to both programs:
