    The world of user experience is confusing and messed up. When you are trying to deal with a UX challenge in your organization, you might as well spin a wheel to see if the answer lies in a mindset, methodology, tool, strategy, community of practice, field of study, or industry.

    UX is the feeling people get when they interact with your product or service. But in your organization, does “UX” represent a design process, separate team, certified profession, ubiquitous skill, agent of change, or meaningless buzzword?

    Using an innovative and engaging format, this talk will introduce you to these Spins on User Experience so you can consider which are useful to advance UX in your organization.


    6:00 - 6:15 p.m. - Introduction/UXPA Updates

    6:15 - 6:20 p.m. - Introduce Speaker & Topic

    6:20 - 7:15 p.m. - Presentation
