This one-day workshop is your opportunity to try these tools in a structured environment without the pressure of urgent deadlines or looming stakeholders. projekt202's experienced research and design professionals Kelly Moran and Jessie Webster will share industry tips and insightful tricks that will help you put theory to practice.
The Sept. 14 workshop will be hands-on and interactive; instructional elements will be reinforced with stories of impact to real projects.

Product and UX: How to Combine Strengths to Make Something Truly Great
Speaker: VP of CX Jeremy Johnson
12 - 12:50 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15, 2017
This talk will cover best practices for UX and product roles, how they should collaborate, and what they should rely on each other for. As a UX designer, what can your product owner do to accelerate change? As a product owner, what can your UX designer do to build customer empathy? As the lines for cross-functional teams continue to blur, there are still strengths that the two roles can learn from each other. Together, teams can work to understand, design, build and launch something that improves business metrics and succeeds with customers.
