Culture Change towards Collaboration
Currently working as Head of UX, I have many years of experience working in User Experience and Product teams, preferring to work in agile and lean ways. My goal is to ensure that people and their goals are at the center of the design process, whether the project is a website, a healthcare system, an airplane cockpit, or project management software. I have many years of experience gathering requirements from end users, internal stakeholders, and key business people to ensure that projects accomplish the right goals for everyone involved.
In addition to my experience as a UX designer, I’ve worked as an Agile coach helping teams in a variety of industries and departments adopt Agile methodologies.
I actively participate in the UX community, both locally and globally. I produced the UX stage at the Agile 2010 and Agile 2011 conferences and helped organize the first UXCampLondon events. I’ve also spoken at conferences including Lean Agile Scotland, UX Cambridge and Agile Cambridge. I teach Lean UX at General Assembly and provide mentoring at Lean Startup Machine in London.

A case study of changing company culture from siloed teams to cross-disciplinary teams. The change coincided with the introduction of a UX team, so the perspective is very much on how UX influenced the change, and how UX was introduced to a company used to creating products without focus on that skillset. 183total visits,3visits today
