UXDX

My goal is to shift from delivering software to delivering products that work. I co-founded UXDX in 2016 to accelerate the transition from projects to cross-functional product teams; moving the focus away from following process at all costs to delivering real customer and business value.
Organisations are primarily structured in functional silos, which are great in low change environments, but product development is the 21st Century is fast paced. Cross functional product teams which cut across traditional functional and department boundaries enable teams to focus on the outcomes that they want to deliver and avoid the politics and blockers that slow down delivery.
Shifting to product teams requires changes to organisational culture and structures, and change is hard. But people don't resist change, they resist being changed. I enjoy working with people to help bring them on the journey from projects to products tackling both the motivation and skills required to change.
Lets empower teams to work together to build amazing products that customers love.

Enabling the Team

One of the biggest challenges product leaders in any modern organisation face is creating "empowered" teams. It means asking the right questions without pre-supposing the answer, painting a picture without leaving teams with nothing more to do than paint-by-numbers. It means finding the right balance between top-down guidance and bottom-up creativity.
This session will bring different perspectives from design, product and engineering to discuss their thoughts on striking this fine balance
