IxDA Sydney Feb 2017 – Jeff Gothelf

Happy New Year Sydney IxDA. We kick off our 6th year of bringing you top shelf speakers and events with a bang!

Design in Context

On 22 Feb, 2017, we bring you Jeff Gothelf, co-author of Lean UX and his latest, Sense and Respond. Warming up the audience before that, we will be bringing highlights from this year’s interaction17 in New York.

Scaling Lean: Principles over Process

The term Lean has become widely popular, particularly with the word “startup” attached to it. This has led many people to believe this is an approach to work relevant only to new companies or initiatives. Lean-curious companies who have tried to implement these ideals often stall at one or two teams citing organizational complexities, politics and dependencies as insurmountable obstacles to Lean Startup at scale.

Can Lean Startup practices be scaled — not just as culture and philosophy but as tactical process? In this practical presentation, Jeff will share several methods for scaling Lean Startup techniques in large organizations exemplified in detailed case studies and professional experience. Jeff will cover knowledge management, intra-team dependencies, infrastructure requirements and several other elements of ensuring successful Lean Startup practices in companies of any size.

Interaction17 highlights

To kick off the year we have a special guest bringing the highlights from this year’s premiere IxDA global event. You can check out the presentations from 2016 on the IxDA Vimeo channel.
