What does “Creating a Culture Change” mean to you as a designer? Let’s discuss things like employee experience; governance; empowerment; and how different “isms” and biases have a huge effect on the internal culture of a company (and how this ties into UX and design, and what we can do to change this).
UX Kitchen Nairobi
How do you run a design team in a startup where design is still a shared resource? In the developing world of things, engineering is a non-negotiable. And since product design is quickly making its way there too, we need a playbook of dos & don’t. Say you have a limited budget but you also know product design cannot be ignored. Where do you start? In this session we shall see how to manage a design team, ops & projects as a shared resource, but in ways that keep your team motivated and projects well taken care of.
What are the current trends, focus areas and how our future work will look like. Assess, optimize, scale and automate phases. Impact enablers, accelerators and knowledge aligners in operations
The Design Sprint is one of the most talked-about methodologies in the field of UX. I’ve run sprints with startups, public institutions, and Fortune 500 companies and each one of them was an adventure. While most UXers today get the core idea. Very few people understand the reasons why it was designed the way it was. In this talk, I will share 6 reasons why I’m passionate about this approach, and the long-term impact it can have on companies and organizations.

The concept of human-in-the-loop was born to train specific machine learning algorithms that need constant input from humans in order to learn effectively. The whole concept places AI at the centre and makes the humans go around it in a loop. Today the evolution of humans as digital users is demanding a new approach. One where the human being is at the centre of the attention while tech circles and evolves around us. We have entered the era of Tech-in-the-loop which focuses on discovering human intention, emphasising user experience, supporting an effective positive impact to celebrate the power that humans have. This presentation aims at raising awareness and touching upon the different phases of the approach.

UX strategy lies at the intersection of UX design and business strategy. When the first edition of UX Strategy came out in 2015, there were just hundreds of practitioners going by the titles “UX Strategist” or “Product Strategist”. But since Jaime’s theory and practice put a big stake in the ground, there are now tens of thousands of practitioners worldwide. Jaime will share the behind-the-scenes of the process of being an author and how the 2nd edition evolved with this growing field.

24 Hours of UX
The Scaled Agile Framework, better knonw as SAFe, is a set of patterns for implementing agile practices at enterprise scale, and is being rolled out in many large organizations globally. However, user experience often gets lost in the process, despite the intentions of integrating it. A proponent and opponent of SAFe will introduce their views, followed by a Q&A. If you are a SAFe veteran, consider participating in our workshop that follows this talk (see further below on this page).
Localization impacts user experience in more ways then we know. Translation and localization is important but copying user experience and taking it other cultures can often be useless. Localization must incorporate cultural norms and nuances in order to be successful. The webinar will look at localization by focusing on the Arabic world and specific issues that arise in creating user experiences. Case studies will be presented from projects in Arabic countries.

What have you learned over the past 10 years as a UX designer?
First of all I have learned that I had no idea what the actual job of a UX designer looks like.
I have learned that asking questions reveals made up words.
I have learned, that including UX in an agile process in a B2B company is very difficult.
I found out that I love processes & guidelines.
That cake can take you further than you might think.
I have learned that I need to be aware of stress and my mental health.
How hard it is to change.
That there are so many others like me.
But most of all, I have learned that learning never ends. In this talk I will tell you about UX education, the things I wished I knew when I started as a UX Designer and how I tried to teach all of this in 6 hours.

NoVA UX (Northern Virginia UX)
The age of the distributed team is upon us. Teams can now operate and collaborate from locations other than a central office, and events surrounding the 2020 COVID pandemic have thrown its practicality into sharp relief. Managing a team whose members are distributed across several locations requires a different mindset and will remain a must-have for all areas of business from this point forward. In this session, Engineering leader and author Alberto S. Silveira Jr. will share concepts from his recently published book, Building and Managing High-Performance Distributed Teams. We’ll explore why the high-performance distributed team model is vital to the future of business and why the combined power of Design, Product, and Engineering is critical to a high-performing team’s success.

There’s a simple trick to making your UX more naturally intuitive: make the things in your digital system more recognizable to users. Thanks to a couple million years of evolution in the physical world, objects in meatspace are pretty easy to recognize. But how often do we enter into digital environments and struggle to identify the meaningful, valuable, and relevant stuff? In this talk, we will learn to fix four anti-patterns that impact object identification.

Humans in Service Design
Fear, Hunger and Sex are the best motivators to make people take action. Think about your decision making process to get the vaccine, or not. What were the considerations, doubts, aspirations and goals? How did the digital experience align against the physical experience? Were the directions, information provided by your local vaccination center clear and did the instructions match up to the actual event itself? I think there could not be a more powerful example of good service design than the vaccine process. Let’s meet to share our stories, and compare experiences based upon our hyper-localized yet very diverse experiences: from Pre-Service Awareness (learning about eligibility) to During the Service (booking appointments, getting the shot) to Post Service (socialization – sharing the selfie, feeling relief and encouragement). Lets hope to remove Fear as our primary motivator for decision making. I personally would much prefer to return to the world where Sex and Hunger drive our actions!

SFUXD & Silicon Valley UXD
The San Francisco Bay Area has quite a charm when you can walk through the streets of Palo Alto and see founders of unicorns having coffee or Stanford dropouts meeting their co-founder. Enter the pandemic: Now Zoom meetings are the hot spot and location really doesn’t matter, and not just Tim Ferriss style. This talk will discuss how the pandemic dispersed Silicon Valley, how designers from Berlin became community members with designers in Toronto, and why this is a great thing for design and technology.
As a non-stop learner and a creator of Testla HK, Desighla and Colearnla. I aim to provide an experimental space for Hong Kong UXers to find inspiration, get community support, fail fast and grow together.

The talk highlights the experience of myHCI-UX as a non-profit organization, as well as a chapter of ACM SIGCHI, in promoting and creating awareness of the importance of UX. We will share, specifically, our experiences in working with governmental agencies, which from studies show Malaysia to have a high power distance between the government and the citizens. We hope the sharing will provide insights to those who face similar challenges so as to know the ways to best approach the problem and finding the solutions.

UX Research Lab
The industry paradigm 4.0 is based on a system of communication and collaboration with each other and with people in real-time to improve process performance in terms of productivity, security, energy efficiency, and cost. Although industrial processes are more and more automated, human performance remains a major responsibility for product quality and factory productivity. In this context, understanding how workers interact with the production system and how they experience the factory environment is fundamental to properly model human interactions and optimizing processes. Also, product design is an important topic that is closely linked to the company’s competitive advantage. One of the most important changes is to focus on the end-to-end process perspective. That will foster a new model of cooperation. Strong user interfaces are critical to meet rising expectations and enabling a consistent user experience across different channels.

When I worked as a UX Researcher for a global tech company, the north star metric we used when measuring the Southeast Asian market was none other than GROWTH!
How many new users have we acquired? How many monthly active users to maintain? How many inactive users to resurrect? Other metrics such as users’ well-being, design ethics, and design justice are more of an afterthought due to Southeast Asia’s massive population of prospective users. My UX research work could sometimes resemble colonialism: I came to the SEA market from my fancy office in Silicon Valley, mined as many insights as possible, filed a report on the golden insight nuggets, and finally, designed a product that focused solely on growth.
Users’ privacy? Accessibility? The excess of behavior change? Users’ security? Those product topics were luxuries only available to our users from Western Europe and North America. For us, the SEA market, only our total population number – 674,351,868 – mattered for the growth reports we frequently made. Yes, for some investors and venture capitalists, users from the SEA market are mere numbers, not humans.
In this talk, I will go through several cases where many global tech companies “abuse” SEA users for the sake of growth and what we can do about it.

1. In the first half of the first session I will introduce the process of using Ainize to learn about AI Opensource and design the UX of AI services. During this session, I will share the best AI services our community members (UXers) designed with Ainize and built with No-code tools. During the next half of the first session(30 mins), I will briefly share a quick tutorial on using the No-code tool, Bubble, that UXers can easily use to build AI services without codes based on the ideation they developed through Ainize.
2. In the first half of the second session, the participants will take time and explore Ainize to design their own AI services. For the rest of the time, participants will share each other’s UX design results and upload their works at the forum(https://forum.ainetwork.ai/c/ai-showcase/11) so that our community organizers can help them when they have issues in the future.

Join us in the Design Leadership Therapy session! Born in beautiful Switzerland, this format is built around open discussion of design leaders. We collect their leadership challenges, vote on the ones that touch most of us, and then share possible approaches to each one’s specific scenarios. Whether it’s the tricky hiring for that special team, or managing a complicated stakeholder who “doesn’t get it,” or trying to level up the design culture in your organization, you’ll always find someone who had a chance to take a stab at it in their own way. Lounge into our comfy chair in one of our breakout sessions.
Requirement: Participants should have a leadership position, either as a people manager or as a technical lead and are willing to either contribute a challenge or actively support other design leaders.

The process of analyzing qualitative data has become a critical concern for every modern product design team. There is an abundance of data and user feedback coming from different sources such as user interviews, call-centers, social media posts, usability testing sessions, ethnographic observations, etc.
However, all these data are worthless unless there is a certain way to analyze them and convert them into insights that will make digital products and services better.
We offer a 2.5-hour online workshop where we will present, discuss, and practice qualitative data analysis techniques. Emphasis will be put on the inductive thematic analysis technique i.e. the art of sorting, labelling, analyzing, and even correlating non-numerical data. This is a hands-on online course, and we will work both as individuals and members of small groups by reflecting on real case studies and scenarios.
