More than ever before, the role of the user has changed from isolated to connected, from unaware to informed, from passive to active. As a result business, technology, marketing and design strategies must be aligned and focused on the overall customer experience to drive innovation forward. This user-centered experience is about the entire ecosystem from how people discover products or services, to well past interaction across touchpoints. The transparent process of engaging users early and often will forge personal connections with products, allowing organizations to create greater value sooner. Learning how to design WITH users, instead of FOR them, can be an entire cultural shift in thinking for some organizations.
In this session, 3M Health Care UX Design Principal, Andy Vitale, will address how to tackle organizational culture like a design problem. Andy will draw from his experience at 3M about making strides towards a culture of experience. He’ll share insights and tactics for getting a seat at the table, as well as a strategy for maintaining that seat. He’ll also discuss ways to expand influence and cultivate advocacy.
