UX teams of one have unique challenges. Fewer resources. Creative isolation. Organizational ignorance. Sometimes even hostility. In her half-day workshop on “Building a Practice as a UX Team of One,” veteran WebVisions speaker Leah Buley will explore the real life organizational situations that teams of one work in, and what you can do about them.
Teams of one arguably have the furthest reach and impact, precisely because they mostly work with people who don’t yet know the value of user experience. But when UX teams of one are embattled, frustrated, territorial, and defensive, the discipline of UX seems that way too. And when UX teams of one are relevant and effective, confidence and interest in UX spreads.
The goal of this workshop is to give every attendee the tools to be relevant and effective by creating a personalized plan for their UX practice. Your plan will include the methods, soft skills, and strategies that will help you build support for UX and do your best work in a resource constrained environment.
