Jacklyn Burgan UX + BA Working Together In Harmony
Why: Every UX professional I've had the pleasure of working with has experienced tension working with their product manager or business analyst. I'd love to share some practical knowledge and personal stories about how I overcame similar issues and what I learned from them.Description: By combining the efforts of business analysis and user experience design, building efficient, easy to use software that achieves the goals of both the business and the users is easier. User Experience and Business Analysis are two disciplines that apply analysis and design thinking during the product and software development process. Both roles are unique and the people that fill them have different strengths, but often times the roles overlap. In this talk, I'll explain how I worked through UX/BA clashes, what I learned from those experiences and provide you with new strategies to take back to your workplace that will help you to improve the collaboration across your teams and ultimately create a better product

Joel Beukelman Your Bias is Bull$hit
As designers and creators we assume responsibility to craft products, experiences and things around us - a role better tempered by research and education than one's personal perspective or taste. It's too easy for us to absorb current viewpoints, mob mentalities, or personal biases instead of exploring and understanding new ways... and maybe refining our own.

Lea Alcantara Beyond Static: The New Design System
In todayu2019s mobile world, providing design deliverables within the browser creates a more productive experience for your clients and your team. And while this means a shift from Photoshop to Sublime, it isnu2019t just a code shift. The design process remains integral and informs every web-based deliverable. Using a real client case study, Lea will explore Bright Umbrellau2019s design deliverables in and out of the browser and explain how their in-house u201cframeworku201d has ultimately saved them time and money.

Adam Connor Discuss Design Without Losing Your Mind
Collaboration requires us to share our work; to communicate our ideas with one another and to collect otheru2019s thoughts in order to know whether the designs and creations weu2019re producing are meeting the objectives of the project. But often we wrestle with collecting feedback. We get comments that are less then helpful because they seem irrelevant or unclear. Or we find that weu2019re getting feedback and reactions at inopportune times rather than points in the process where they would have been useful in informing design decisions.Our ability to critique speaks directly to the quality of the conversations we have with teammates, whether they be designers, developers, stakeholders, etc. Designers frequently complain about the quality and uselessness of the feedback they are given, but we rarely examine our own processes to identify how to collect useful feedback and make the discussions around our designs more productive.In this talk weu2019ll explore critique as both an activity and an aspect of any communication or collaboration. Attendees will walk away with:A clearer understanding of what critique is and why asking for u201cfeedbacku201d is problematic. Methods for gathering useful feedback from clients and teammates. Ideas on how to introduce team members to the idea of critique and get everyone using it. An understanding of where critique fits within the design processes and how to incorporate it into projects
