Session Abstract

User Experience (UI, UX, IxD)

Stop Reacting… Lean into it!

Session #

107

Companies too often carry their platforms into the future with a "feed the machine" mentality. To meet customer needs they continually pack more features into the system only to find the system getting more complicated and creating customer frustration over time. This eventually creates mountains of debt difficult to overcome toward actually making customers happy. In this talk, I'll provide practical tips and examples I've applied over the years using lean methodology toward continuous platform UX improvements at scale. If we fail to adopt more lean and agile processes to combat process bloat we will end up on the reactionary treadmill where wider improvement tends to stagnate. Applying practical strategies to reduce reactionary behavior allows teams to partner more closely, react more quickly to change, and connect the dots toward a better strategy.
