How To Get Buy-In for Design Driven Work

As designers, we constantly have new ideas for visually improving a product to create a better experience for users. Oftentimes, product and engineering leaders don't want to act on these ideas because they take time away for seemingly higher priority, roadmapped projects. In this talk, I'd like to deliver some guidance around how to get buy-in from product and engineering to reprioritize design driven work that I've found has worked in my experience as a product designer.

Designing for the Next Billion Users

There will be nearly a billion new users to the internet within the next 5 years. Yet despite this rapid growth, today's products have not been designed for people in emerging markets like India, Vietnam, Mexico and Brazil - and don't take into consideration unique needs, context, and barriers. So while the internet can empower some, it can also be difficult and frustrating to users who didn't grow up with today's technology. As the UX Design Lead on the Google Maps Globalization Team, I'll share some key considerations and best practices to keep in mind, as we all work to build more globally inclusive products.

Learning how to ask intentional and empathetic questions by listening to what people want

It'll surround the concept that a lot of times, people show what they want through how they speak and how to dig into what they're saying rather than taking their answers for face value.

It goes back to the principle from Ford, "If I had asked people what they wanted, they would've said a faster horse".
