Zendesk Kraków Talks are back, with special product design and UX research edition.
Product design and UX research are an essential combination to creating and building great customer experiences. Experiences that understand and empathize with users. We will be shining a light on these experiences and the processes that help shape them.
Over the past twelve years, Zendesk’s product design team has scaled to nine cities across eight countries and four continents. The team has grown to encompass product design, UX research, content strategy, design operations and ‘Garden’, our open-source design system. Through this growth we believe we’ve learnt a thing or two - how we work, and how at the heart of everything we do is the need for strong cross-functional collaboration.
Additionally, this event will cover some practical solutions to capture and synthesize user insights, with a range of actionable methodologies. We will focus on the practical side - discussing lessons and shared experiences.
We are excited for this special event and look forward to the conversation.
