Special Edition: Lessons from the UX Strategy Conference

For next Thursday's design group, we have a special edition for you.

I've just returned from the UX Strategy Conference in Atlanta and have lots of ideas and techniques to share with you about making our discipline more strategic and less tactical. I will be covering:

• How to gather disparate information sources about your current user experience, and how to communicate this understanding to the larger organization in a compelling, impactful manner.

• How to communicate a detailed vision for the optimal user experience you are trying to create.

• Build a shared understanding of what is "good" UX with measurements to monitor progress and successes.

• Create a roadmap of how to get from where you are today to where you want to be in future.

• Discussion on changing the mindset and culture of your organization to consider UX as a strategic tool.

The UX strategy session will run for about an hour and a half, followed by general UX discussion and critique. If you're working on any project that would benefit from input from the group, feel free to bring it along.

The Waves Coffee Howe St. & Smithe meeting room can only seat about 12 people (with some standing room) so If you're interested in attending, please RSVP ASAP.

    Hi guys. I tried uploading the slide presentation, but this site has an upload limit of 10mB. If anyone needs the slides, please email me: krispian at gmail

      Uploading it to slideshare privately and sharing the link maybe another alternative...

      Thanks for the suggestions, but I'm not comfortable posting a deck that is comprised of other people's work. All the material I found were on Tim Loo's and Dan Klyn's slides at http://www.slideshare...­

    Hi Krispian,

    Things are getting crazy busy for me around the beginning of September, but if I had to pick a date, it might be the 26th (I think that's when things begin to get a bit more sane.) what do you think?

      Busy is a good thing! The 26th seems as good a day as any.

    • Juliette L.

      I second the vote for a date towards the end of September :)
