Whether through a formal research phase or careful observation in their day-to-day work, UX designers invariably uncover organization-level roadblocks to good UX practices. It’s more than politics, though. It’s about how people are measured, rewarded and disciplined from role to role that can create unnecessary cross-purposes that ultimately ship bad software.

The organizations in which we work are systems that people must navigate to complete their tasks. UX designers are skilled at spotting patterns and inconsistencies, reconciling conflicts, and presenting findings and solutions clearly and persuasively. In this presentation, Charlie will offer strategic tips and starting points for discovering gaps in the org chart, and presenting the findings.

Charlie is a Senior UX Designer at projekt202. His favorite projects to work on are large enterprise software applications that are a non-negotiable part of people’s job description. He finds the chance to improve half of someone’s waking hours very rewarding. Over the course of his decade in design, he has worked with the financial and health care industries, as well as government and education, so he has acquired the taste for cracking heavily-regulated, complex problems.
