Written by | 1 comment


Conferences have always been great places to learn by listening. Enterprise UX offers a unique opportunity to work on problems by talking—as well as listening—to one another in a live, collaborative setting we’re calling Challenge Sprints. You can work with peers and try out new thoughts in a space far, far away from the office.

Here’s the official sprint lineup:

Challenge Sprint 1: Governance in the face of silos

What sort of governance model could elevate UX best practices and unify a distributed digital landscape such as a university or a large dispersed organization?
Wednesday, June 8: 10:15am-12:15pm
Submitted by Meg Frisch (Digital Experience Manager, Temple University)

Challenge Sprint 2: Making dynamic maps

Can we create dynamic maps that remain dynamic when they are documents?
Wednesday, June 8: 1:45-3:45pm
Submitted by Alan Laidlaw (VP of Product, Ecos)

Challenge Sprint 3: Cross-team collaboration

What philosophies, processes, and tools best support cross-team collaboration and lead to products with high-quality, cohesive designs?
Thursday, June 9: 9:15-11:45am
Submitted by Melissa Casburn (Principal UX Designer, Puppet)

Challenge Sprint 4: Building a lean platform

How do you run a successful platform that creates the magic of both speed and quality?
Thursday, June 9: 1:15-3:15pm
Submitted by Hartmut Obendorf (UX Director, XING)
