How usable is UX?


UX has grown up from it’s academic HCI roots to be being a ‘first class’ concern that is taken increasingly seriously. But it also carries much baggage, especially when trying to engage with agile dev teams. Understand the user, context of usage, task analysis; we do these things when designing products, but do we do them when designing the way we work? When building UX into an organisation, what do we want to do and what do we need to do? This talk will challenge many of the ‘sacred cows’ of user experience, and explore how UX can be successfully embedded into teams and organisations.
