This presentation was a refined version of the workshop Adam Archer and I led at Fluxible 2013.
Getting your design through implementation (in a form you might recognize!) can be a big challenge, especially in engineering-driven companies. In this presentation, we’ll cover some concrete approaches for advancing UX and increasing the chance that your good work will see the light of day. It starts by recognizing areas for change in your context, influencing change at different levels of your organization, and shaping how people make decisions and work together toward shared outcomes.
Join two practitioners from IBM, one from UX design and one from engineering, who have found ways to advance UX and have more fun on the job. This session is a mix of presentation and discussion on the following topic areas:
* Influencing the engineering team’s plans
* Taking a lean cross-functional approach to design
* Bringing UX activities into the larger team cadence
* Collaborating in both co-located and remote team contexts
This session will present opportunities to share your own challenges and solutions, and to learn from other audience participants.
