This three hour workshop will change the way you create new features or plan for new products. At this hands-on workshop you’ll learn how to use Design Sprints to identify a problem, brainstorm solutions, and create a prototype to validate or invalidate that proposed solution. Each phase is time boxed to move quickly to create 'aha' moments, fail faster, and rapidly iterate on a solution to reach success. Validating product concepts increases speed to market and lowers chance of failure.
Information Architects have always recognized the essential role of the user. To be successful, IA must work for people. But as artificial intelligence and machine learning increase in power and prevalence, how can we ensure that technology serves human needs, and not the other way around? This year’s theme, Designing for Humans will bring multi-faceted discussions to the Summit around topics such as human-centered design, ethics in technology, and how to reconcile the presence of artificial intelligence with the real needs and experiences of people.

While working as a UX consultant over the last 8 years, one of the biggest changes I have noticed is the evolution of UX capabilities on the client side. Through the 2000’s a majority of our clients had minimal exposure to User Experience as a discipline and looked to us as the sole authority in that domain. Over the years more and more organizations have their own experienced in-house UX teams. As an agency, we often work in conjunction with these teams.
