Professionally nosy, Amy spends her time as a Product Designer split between research and design. She currently works at Seccl, a financial technology company, hoping to fix the many inefficiencies found in the financial world. A passionate skill-sharer, Amy runs skills exchange workshops to train her colleagues to do a lot of her work for her. She’s never happier than when in front of a group of people sharing what she knows.
When not at her desk trying to solve the latest user interface or architecture conundrum, Amy is in her garden with her husband, two cats and five goldfish.
A user-centered approach for product teams should be a procedure deeply rooted in the organizational culture. However this is not the case in a lot of organisations with siloed teams and departments who struggle to structurally shift an organization’s value to the users.
Moderated by Richard Dalton, this panel outlines how to create and sustain a user-centered culture within a team and extend that throughout the organisation.
Part of the success of a cross-functional team is the ability of each member to be T-Shaped. But how can you encourage continued up-skilling when your business is scaling.
In Seccl, Amy has established Skills Exchange Session, a peer-to-peer learning scheme that is free, valuable and empowers your teams. In this session, Amy will touch on:
- The successes of peer to peer learning;
- The challenges of this type of learning; and
- How you can enable these sessions in your own workplace
