Economics & Strategy Talk Series featuring Amy Bucher, Behavioral Scientist & Author

Our next guest in the Economics and Strategy Talk series is behavioral scientist Amy Bucher. Amy is Chief Behavioral Officer at Lirio and author of “Engaged: Designing for Behavior Change”. Her presentation is entitled “Designing for Behavior Change: Using Behavioral Science to Create Engaging and Effective Experiences”. This online event will be held on October 20th from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm CT.

Digital apps and experiences can support people in making all kinds of positive behavior changes, but in order to do that, they have to be both engaging and effective. That means designers need to focus on creating something compelling that addresses the reasons why people struggle to achieve their goals. Behavior science offers several frameworks that can layer onto a design process to create products that are not just engaging to use, but actually help people perform the behaviors that lead to better outcomes for health, wealth, and happiness. Learn about best practices from COM-B, the self-determination theory of motivation, and behavioral economics to help you design for lasting behavior change.

Amy’s book is Engaged: Designing for Behavior Change 

Behavior change design creates entrancing—and effective—products and experiences. Whether you’ve studied psychology or are new to the field, you can incorporate behavior change principles into your designs to help people achieve meaningful goals, learn and grow, and connect with one another. Engaged offers practical tips for design professionals to apply the psychology of engagement to their work.
