Come learn the magical wizardry of design thinking with Home Depot UX Manager Brooke Creef! Brooke will guide us through her design thinking thoughts and then we will work together on a few exercises to practice what we've learned.
Here's some more about Brooke (https://www.linkedin.com/in/brookecreef/):
At the Home Depot, she works with a cross-functional leadership team to spearhead the Design Sprint scaling initiative. Specifically, The Home Depot is using Design Sprints at scale to drive design transformation, empower teams and foster a culture of innovation. Additionally, she trains facilitators and designers in design thinking (like us!), helps with resource management, project LoE, and sprint planning.
Before joining The Home Depot, Brooke worked as a Consultant with clients such as Coca-Cola, UPS, State Farm, Cox Communications, AT&T, and The Weather Channel.
NEW! We will also have 2 more designers from Home Depot helping out Brooke.
Alexis is currently a User Experience Designer at The Home Depot, supporting HD Home. She has experience in enterprise UX, business process refinement, and e-commerce so she understands the value in achieving stakeholder alignment through design thinking exercises.
Sara is a Senior User Experience Designer at The Home Depot, where she has been a part of the Online UX team for over four years. She has an extensive design background including print, digital, UX, and art direction. Within Home Depot, she has led design thinking across the organization by facilitating design sprints and empathy mapping workshops for HD Home.
Brooke's a badass and we have tons to learn from her. We'll also get to check out Dragon Army (http://dragonarmy.com/)'s hot new digs. This is where co-organizer Carolyn's goes from 9ish to 5ish every day, and from word on the street, we are all going to be jealous of this awesome space.
