Description

UX professionals worry about the wrong things: methods and techniques, despite how little of our impact hinges on extending our already well developed expertise. The reasons we fail are often so simple, or work so against our vision of the world, that we work in denial of them, never understanding why we seem to be stuck in the same place again and again. This fun, entertaining and interactive talk will share a fresh, entertaining, yet tough perspective on why we succeed or fail, and what we can do differently to make the changes we want to happen, to happen now.
