Experience design is no longer a nice-to-have luxury of a few organizations with tons of money and exceptional visionary management. It's become commonplace for organizations that build products and web sites. Experience Design is a centerpiece of boardroom discussions and quickly becoming a key performance indicator for many businesses.
In this event Jared will demonstrate how successful Experience Design:
* Must integrate the needs of the users with the requirements of the business
* Is learned, but not available through introspection
* Must be invisible to succeed
* Is cultural
* Is multi-discplinary
* Thrives best in a "educate and administrate" environment
