Behind the Wireframe: UX Leadership Secrets

Sunday, March 15
12:30PM - 1:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon B
110 E 2nd St

Learn UX Leadership secrets to empower your team to do amazing things! As UX grows as a discipline, we need to rewrite the leadership handbook.

Our panel of top UX leaders will share techniques for getting the best out of your teammates, including balancing strengths, setting expectations, and giving feedback. We’ll explain how to establish and evolve a UX team over time by treating organizational design like a UX challenge. We’ll provide concrete techniques for navigating complex, engineering-driven organizations to make design a priority. We’ll discuss how to manage up, down, and across to balance blue sky design explorations with deliverables and execution.

We will also field audience questions.
