Event Description

"We don’t have time for that."
"It's too expensive!"
"What exactly is that anyway?"
"Can’t the designer figure that out in the designs?"
"…Maybe next time."
Sound familiar? You're not alone. In this lively panel, Chicago-area leaders of UX and Strategy will share their real-world approaches to avoiding these (and other) roadblocks before they come up, and advocating internally and externally for the foundation of great digital products & services. Following  5-minute mini-presentations from the panel, a moderated discussion and audience questions will round out our exploration of the most effective ways to advocate for Strategy & UX.
