UX Strategy: What’s all the fuss about this rapidly growing practice?

Register for this event


Event Description:

You might be asking how UX Strategy is any different from the user experience plans we’ve always created as user researchers and interaction designers. Is it just a new buzzword or is there more to it?

Let’s take a look at this new "strategy" and what makes it different from our current practices. Understand why developing a UX strategy is critical in our personal success as UX professions and in the success we help our organizations achieve.


Schedule:

6:00 - 6:30: Networking & Snacks
6:30 - 7:30: Presentation by Janice Jones
7:30 - 8:00: Q/A followed by Post Event Drinks at TBD
