How can we redefine the concept of success to better reflect the values and ambitions of a creative culture?
In recent years we’ve seen a growing number of organisations set out more ‘purpose driven’ visions for their futures. And yet, the reality is that most companies continue to use the traditional measures of growing profit, productivity and shareholder value to define success. What if we redesigned the mainstream success benchmarks to prioritise an alternative set of measures and behaviours that are better aligned to the delivering happier and more creative working cultures?

How do designers and developers collaborate? Which tools do they use? Where are the biggest pitfalls and pain points? This talk will discuss research on how designers and developers work on co-located and geographically-distributed teams, leveraging a wide variety of tools to enable team members to design, develop, and collaborate. Through a variety of research methods, we investigated how design tools and systems help — and hinder — their experiences. We will share our research methods so you can address your own team’s productivity and review which design tools are being used. Additionally, we will provide a high-level overview of practices for tool integration and ways to avoid fragmentation to work together more productively as a UX team.

CHOOSE YOUR PATH
We’ll also be discussing the skills that you need for the future world of work, why diversity in tech matters, and how to prepare the next generation for roles that don’t even exist yet.
We’ll potentially have a very special guest – an alumna from one of our InnovateHer school programmes (permissions pending!)
Join us for a lively debate and for some inspiration on creating your own future career path.
