June Meetup - One Size Never Fits All: 5 Takes on UX Process Flexibility

This month's #tcipm Meetup features a reprise of a presentation that the Clockwork UX team gave at the UXPA MN meeting in March of this year. Project Managers: bring a member of your company's UX team as a guest, as it'd be great to discuss how we as PMs can support our UX teams in delivering awesome work!

6:00-6:30 - Mingle, chat, beer, and snacks
6:30-6:45 - Introductions 
6:45-7:30 - Presentation- One Size Never Fits All: 5 Takes on UX Process Flexibility
7:30-8:00 - Mingle again!

A well-defined process is essential to UX development. But checklist-style devotion (or inflexible adherence) to a specific process methodology or approach can actually backfire, harming the very efficiency and quality that a good process is meant to deliver. 

The UX team from Clockwork will show how it applies its well-defined process as guardrails and milestones rather than hard-and-fast law: How they engineer process decision points and flexibility into their UX approach to ensure cross-functional collaboration, to choose the right methodologies and artifacts for the project's and team's needs, and to stay focused on what's truly important to project success. 

You'll hear from five presenters, each sharing a different case study or review that demonstrates the whens, whys, hows, and results of process flexibility. You'll learn tips for selling and implementing process elasticity within your own organization to help you and your team stay nimble, responsive, and excited about the work at hand.

Clockwork is providing space, beer, and provides Meetup fees. Thanks, Clockwork!

Creed Interactive is providing food for our meetup. Thanks, Creed Interactive!

    Thanks again to Meghan for hosting a good Meetup. I wouldn't recommend a webinar after a meetup for the future - but it was nice to check it out. Your friend was well informed and a good presenter.

    I thought the part about lonely people are difficult to deal with. I really need help with that one.

      The webinar on difficult conversations had some good info, didn't it?

      I can't tell if you're saying you need help in dealing with people who are lonely, or if you are looking for help in being less lonely yourself but from our conversation last night I think it's the latter. If you're looking for some other Meetups where you can connect with more people you could also try the civic hacking group I recommended, Open Twin Cities (­) and there are also a lot of Meetups focused on activities and socializing that might help you meet more people as well.

      Another option could be to look into co-working space at a place like DevJam or CoCo where you can work on your developing your project but also be around other entrepreneurs and developers.

      And of course you're always welcome at our Meetups, Kevin! It takes courage to reach out, and I'm glad you said something.

    I'm so sad! I took the bus into work today and can't find a ride to the event :(
    If there happens to be a person heading to Clockwork from DT, I could possibly grab a ride(?)
