For this month’s call we’re convening a 3-person panel to share diverse stories and paths of becoming a UX managerfrom writing, to print/graphic design, and even theater!
Enterprise Experience Community
As creators, we know the value of curiosity. As communicators, we know the value of relationships. Join us to build on existing product skills to work better with difficult people.
During our May 28 community videoconference (4-5pm EDT) we will provide a live interactive preview of some “in development” material from the upcoming EX2020 virtual conference happening later this year (Aug 31 – Sept 3).
In this talk, Laura Klein, author of “Build Better Products” and “UX for Lean Startups” shares some tips for companies who want to find new business models before the old ones stop working.
Margot will walk you through examples from retail, publishing, government, and other industries to detail what you can do to meet unprecedented problems in information consumption. Learn how voice, volume, and vulnerability can inform your design and content strategy to earn the trust of your users.
Whether you are part of a start-up and therefore just starting in on UX in the organization, part of an established UX team, or anywhere in between, it can be useful to step back now and then and ask questions such as:
How mature is our UX practice?
Where are we “at” in the maturity process?
How would being more mature help us?
What is the next step for us?
How can we best, but also realistically, move forward?
We hear a lot of talk about “digital transformation.” But isn’t that what we’ve been doing since the Web emerged in the late 1990s? Why is this still so aspirational for so many organizations? In his consulting practice with Factor, Bram Wessel sees first-hand how enterprise-scale organizations are awakening to the reality that the information itself that drives experiences and gets implemented in technologies —the Information Layer, if you will— is increasingly a tangible organizational asset. As such, it’s as critical as any other kind of infrastructure. Bram joins Lou to ponder where we’ve been and where we might be headed in the realm of enterprise information architecture.
