You’ve got an idea. Maybe it’s a new idea for a web application. Maybe it’s a new product idea you need to push through your organization. The question is: How do you turn an idea into reality?

To answer this question, we’ll look at the making of Star Wars. We’ll look behind the scenes at what it took to get George Lucas’s space fantasy from script to screen. From assembling the right team to navigating the Hollywood corporate studio environment to tapping into powerful universal patterns—this presentation suggests more than a dozen lessons UX designers (and developers!) can all learn from this adventure.

  • TheCorey Corey Goettsche, Librarian at Lincoln City Libraries Very fun presentation. Indeed, you are among other SW Geeks who are also mindful of quoting anything Lucas too readily for fear of legal entanglements. 5 years ago

  • stephenpa Stephen Anderson, Product Strategy & Design Consultant at any cafe with good WiFi! Thank you (all) for the wonderful compliments!

    How long did this take to pull together? Difficult to say... The presentation itself? Probably 60 hours (over about a month period). Coming up with the lessons-- surprisingly fast. The first 8 or 9 lessons took about 5 minutes once I pulled out pen and paper. The remaining lessons resulted over a period of time, while watching 'Empire of Dreams' and reading the excellent 'Making of Star Wars' tome. You can find out a bit more in this interview: http://www.adaptivepath.com/ideas/essays/archives/000911.php

    I will say it's a LOT easier to create these presentations in Keynote (as opposed to PowerPoint).
