Are you going to the Lloyds Banking Group: ConnecTech 2019 conference? Then we’ll see you there, as Border Crossing UX has been invited as a guest speaker to deliver a talk and two workshops on Critical and Creative Thinking.
What is ConnecTech 2019?
Lloyds Banking Group have opened up its internal tech innovation conference to anyone with an interest in using technology to solve customer problems. They and, industry practitioners, will be sharing insights on how to identify and solve customer problems.
The schedule is packed full of great talks, workshops and collaboration opportunities. In and amongst it all, Esther will be delivering:
12:30 UX Matters (Talk)
What us User Experience and why does it matter? This talk will explain what user experience is, why it matters and how you can implement user centred design into everything you do.
14:00 – 15:00 Critical Thinking: How to build a framework for success (Workshop)
If you don’t have clear goals so that all your stakeholders understand what needs to be done and why, you are setting yourself up to fail. This workshop will show you how to use user centred design and critical thinking techniques to:
- Help you set clear goals for your project at the outset.
- Turn goals into hypotheses that can be tested.
- Focus on what matters most.
- Gain strategic clarity and make better decisions.
17:00 – 18:00 Creative problem solving: Solving big challenges require big ideas (Workshop)
If you keep doing the same things, you’ll keep getting the same results. So what do you do to get over blockers when you are stuck in a rut? How do you stop doing things the same way? This workshop will show you how to use creative and design thinking techniques to:
- Overcome blockers and think differently.
- Understand the context of the challenge.
- Develop How Might We questions that open up the problem area.
- Rapidly generate a large quantity of ideas and validate them.”
