1:00-1:45pm Partnering on Design UX Panel + Q&A

Many corporations have begun to see transformational change to their businesses through the use of UX research and design. Our panelists will be discussing the benefits and challenges of a corporate UX design practice, and some best practices they have learned through their work in helping these organizations to put their customer feedback at the center of new product and services design. They will also discuss the benefits of assisting organizations to transform their internal culture around UX research and design.

3:15-4:15pm Innovation Through Partnerships Panel + Q&A

Many organizations have adopted the phrase, “buy it don’t build it,” as the core of their partnerships and technology transformation practice. Our panelists will be discussing real examples of partnership in practice and sharing their deep insight into how large corporations can best partner not only with startups, but with other corporations as they look to build out their digital capabilities using new and emerging technology. They will be focusing not only on best practices, but on how to inform your corporation on partnership strategy and how they have overcome challenges and objections to new partners and technology.
