Join IxDA and ThoughtWorks for a candid conversation about UX in the world of consulting. Making design decisions about a product is always complex: it's is an inevitable compromise between many competing and often contradictory objectives. But for consultants, there is yet another layer of social and economic complexity. How can you make the best decision for the product, the client, and the relationship at the same time?
You'll hear from ThoughtWorkers who consider themselves designers, researchers or something completely different and how they get the job done. We've got several topics to cover: having empathy for your client, learnings from a new grad to a professional, how I learned to love the front end, and tales from an interaction designer.
Refreshments will be provided.
