THE EVENT

Tuesday 28th February 2017 @ The Trampery (Old Street)

Welcome back to UX Crunch conference and our February event, where we will be talking all about Lean UX.

Lean UX is an often contested, incredibly useful technique, which explores new ways of approaching projects when traditional UX techniques just aren't a clear option.

When working within a business who have adopted an Agile approach for their development process, projects move differently and UX designers must learn to flex their own process to maintain the same brilliant experiences in shorter timeframes. Lean UX posits some important questions about our design methods and helps us to assess their practical application in the bustling start-up culture.

We will be teaming up with Jiri Jerabek of Intuit, Phillip Bonhard of Newt Idea and Spencer Turner of Cultivate, to explore this theme further. With some excellent tips, including how to use your experience maps to form a living tool which will aid your design process and a 101 on all you need to know about prototyping at lightning speed, this event will offer some excellent takeaways, whether you work in an Agile team or not! We will also gain some understanding of what it means to lead Lean UX teams effectively... what helpful practices can we implement ourselves and what do we owe to start-up culture and approach?

With space for 130, this will be a popular event! We would like to invite you straight from work for 6.30pm to unwind with your peers over some drinks and pizza at The Trampery in Camden. We will be networking from 6.30pm and guest talks will begin around 7.30. You’re in for some excellent tips and thought-provoking insights, so please book now to avoid disappointment.

Hiring managers are welcome and if you are interested in hosting or sponsoring an event (and would like to get a taste of what we do), please get in touch with Myles McMorrow and we can hold you a ticket!

Tweet the event @TheUXCrunch @_CreativeCircle and let’s get the ball rolling! We look forward to seeing you soon!!!

TALKS AND DISCUSSIONS

Jiri Jerabek - Principle Interaction Designer @ Intuit

Jiri is Principal Interaction Designer at Intuit where he leads product design for the UK market. Jiri's goal at Intuit is to create delightful products that allow small businesses and entrepreneurs to overcome the burdens of accountancy.

Jiri's design philosophy lies at the intersection of two cornerstones: the first is Lean Startup-inspired hypothesis-driven design and the second is application of cognitive science to technology. Jiri says the real magic of product design happens only through extremely close links between design research that creates empathy for the user, and interaction design methods that allow designers to rapidly experiment and explore many possible solutions.

Before joining Intuit, Jiri was Lead UX Designer at The Telegraph, where he defined Telegraph's UX strategy for mobile and was the lead UX for the high-profile project to bring Telegraph's new news app to the market. Jiri also worked for BBC Research & Development, prototyping future content discovery experiences, and several design agencies on customer facing products (National Rail Enquiries app), B2B platforms (American Express), cloud services (Canon) and smart TV interfaces (Freesat).

Jiri studied Human-computer Interaction (MSc) and Graphic Design. He co-organises London's most popular design research Meetup-The Research Thing, and speaks at research and design events in the UK and abroad.

Connecting Research and Design in Lean UX

Experience Maps provide zoomed out view of user journeys, service touchpoints and contextual factors that influence user experience on holistic level. These maps are frequently based on good quality data, user research and business knowledge. Often though, these beautifully crafted maps follow the fate of other UX deliverables: they are hanged on a wall only to collect dust and be forgotten.

In his talk, Jiri will show how he turned experience map from polished deliverable into a living tool that grew with the project, communicated challenges upon a glance, helped the team to share the knowledge and provokes discussions outside of the team.


Phillip Bonhard - Design Director @ Newt Idea

Phil is a seasoned and skilled customer experience professional with more than 10 years’ experience in industry and academia in defining, creating, delivering and testing world-class customer experience designs.

Having delivered work for big consultancies and agencies, he's now teamed up with some fantastic people to create their own Customer Experience Design agency, Newt Idea. Newt is a results focussed and data driven agency, turning ideas into profitable solutions and design brilliant experiences that make people smile. Phil get's to apply his passion for focussing on customer needs and using Design Thinking, to solve life's little and big challenges.

Five Major Benefits of Rapid Prototyping and How to do it Right

We often talk about rapid prototyping mainly in terms of cost benefits. Despite this being one of the reasons for the technique’s increasing popularity, rapid prototyping has many other benefits for design teams and clients who need quick and effective results.

At first, rapid prototyping was mainly used within the engineering process of manufacturing and required specialist technical knowledge. However, its versatility and benefits make it applicable to other fields. Prototyping is not a matter solely for engineers anymore; UX Designers have turned it into a powerful and, most of all, more accessible technique.


Spencer Turner - Principle @ Cultivate

Spencer is a consultant, coach and mentor in Lean UX & Agile UX, speaker, ex-designer, sometimes ruby programmer, and ardent proponent of visual communication.

Spencer works as a Principle at Cultivate, where he operates at the intersection of product management, design and development to help teams make great digital products. Spencer believes that a user focused approach, iteration, lean experiments, good metrics and honesty are the way to deliver successful and engaging digital products.

What does it mean to create and run effective Lean UX teams?

In this talk / Q&A Spencer will try to answer this question, from his own perspective and experiences. Spencer believes it's more about culture and approach than it is about specific practices and in this talk he will explain why!
