User experience (UX) strategy requires a careful blend of business strategy and UX design, but until now, there hasn’t been an easy-to-apply framework for executing it. In this companion talk to her recently-released book (UX Strategy, published by O'Reilly Media), Jaime Levy will introduce lightweight strategy tools and techniques to help you and your team craft innovative multi-device products that people want to use.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, UX/UI designer, product manager, or part of an intrapreneurial team, you can benefit from these strategies and use them in your work right away.
The talk will be followed by a Q&A with Jaime.
Jaime will also be selling/autographing copies of her book UX Strategy after the talk at her author's discounted price of $20 (note the $35 cover price), so please either bring cash or you can paypal her at the event. She also will have special giveaways for anybody who has read the book and left an honest review on Amazon, and two books will be given away at the event!
