UX Crunch Panel: Building Diverse Teams and the Impact on Product

When building your team, it's important to understand the influence that each member can bring to the product or service that you're providing, and to keep in mind the ways in which their perspective offers room for substantial growth. As human beings, we're all so complex and have varying needs- so from a UX standpoint, it's vital that all users are also reflected in your company. Having an inclusive team making decisions for your product ensures that it's doing it's job for all members of your target audience; as well as promoting healthy ethics and great awareness both internally and externally. By working with a wide range of people and encouraging diversity, you're creating fantastic opportunities for both personal and product development whilst also minimising the risk of bias and ensuring that everybody is fairly represented.

Join our wonderful panellists as they explore the many benefits of diversifying your team and offer insight into how you can create opportunities for great social change. This is not one to be missed.

Adrian Van Cooten - Senior UX | Product Designer (PANEL HOST)

UX Crunch at Home - Data & Design

Online event

Data is the backbone of solid UX. Without meticulously going through our research and findings, we'd never fully understand what it is customers are looking for from a product or service and we'd probably make a lot of bad decisions. The entire design process needs to be backed by the data that your researchers have harvested in order to create something that has been carefully crafted for your users with their best interests being kept in mind. It's important to keep data analysis as a consistent moving part of your design process that is constantly evolving as you grow your business. You shouldn't just keep an eye on your own statistics either, tracking competitors and their data not only gives you a better understanding of the market but may offer insight on ways to improve your business.

Qualitative and quantitative data offer different insights to your users experience, so may need to be handled in completely different ways. Join our speakers as they delve into the best analytical approaches of evaluating and re-evaluating your data harvesting techniques- alongside the results that they offer. We'll be diving into what jargon and tools are commonly used by professionals within the industry to see how they can be utilised and how they connect to one another.

Featuring:

Mike Oren - Sr Manager Design, Health Care Services Corporation
Scott Plewes & Roxana M Barbu, Chief Strategy Officer & Senior Cognitive and Behavioural Experience Researcher, Akendi & Macadamian Technologies
Ata Ülgenbay Kayacan, UX Strategist, SHERPA

Panel Discussion at end of the talks on : 'Making Design Artefacts Actionable'
