Upcoming events (2)
UPDATE: This event has been moved to October 19th. See y'all then!
About the Event: As we emerge from the global pandemic and the "great resignation" of 2021, we are all asking ourselves the same questions: What’s really important to me? Is this what I really want to do? If not, am I ready to make a change? Where do I start? Chris Hammond has been mentoring, managing, and coaching others to navigate their careers for years. Join him as he shares his expertise on navigating your own introspection as well as how to design a future that’s best for YOU.
Speaker Bio: Chris believes that making is the fastest way to learn. He is a design principal at IBM, focused on the company’s supply chain products. He leads user experience visioning to inform product roadmaps 2-3 years in the future. Previously, he was a design principal on IBM’s Design Program Office where he mentored and coached leaders and organizations to be more human-centered in service of better outcomes. He led IBM’s point of view on design research and contributed to IBM’s Enterprise Design Thinking framework and activations. He also served in IBM Health Corps tackling infectious disease with the Taiwan Center for Disease Control. Before IBM, he led consulting and corporate design teams to deliver great experiences in healthcare, consumer goods, and electronics. He regularly presents and teaches on design and innovation. He currently lives in Austin, Texas.
Hello, my Readers,
In November we will continue our exploration of User eXperience's history in "User Friendly" - bringing lessons learned from the past into the present, as we look to our future.
This time our journey will connect the October reading about Confusion and Error to user Trust and Metaphors.
I hope you will join us for:
User Friendly: How the hidden rules of design are changing the way we live, work, and play"
by Cliff Kuang with Robert Fabricant
Our next UXPA Bookclub is set:
Date: Wednesday, November 3, 2021
Time: 6:00-7:30 pm Central Time
Part 1: Ease of use
4. Trust pgs[masked]. Metaphor pgs[masked]
For this discussion, it is really important to either listen to the chapters or do the reading as our discussion benefits greatly from that foundation.
If you are just joining us - order the book -and/or listen to it on Audible ( I am doing both)
And join us for our Zoom Bookclub in November.
As always, we have 30 slots and a waiting list, too.
If you are on the main list and, for whatever reason, can't attend - please make sure to change your attendance status so those on the waitlist can and migrate into the discussion group.
We will send the ZOOM link to those signed up to attend and those on the waitlist ...the Day of the meeting.
Your host - Julieanne
