MxF 2016 Workshops!
Block 1: Sessions 1 & 2
Thursday, 9 - 10:15 AM
1. Teamwork Makes the Dream Work - (FULL)
They say no man (or woman) is an island. That’s never been more true than it is in today’s always-on, always-connected work environment. How do you balance that with the desire to be left to your own devices? In this workshop, we’ll explore how to leverage the strengths and skills of everyone on your team to increase productivity, creativity, and pride in your work!
2. Stuck: How to Manage Change Without Dying Inside - (FULL)
Sometimes we find ourselves in a work environment that inspires us only slightly less than truck stop bathrooms. How do you – with your dreams of a collaborative work environment, creative freedom, and all the coffee you can drink – influence the powers-that-be? Let’s talk about how to model and affect change for the better in your organization.
Block 2: Sessions 3 & 4
Thursday, 10:30 AM - Noon
3. Learning While You Build - (FULL)
There’s no such thing as bad feedback... or is there? How do you learn what people really think without leading them into a specific answer? Learning from the people you’re designing for is a critical component of success for any digital product – be it an app, a website, or anything in between. Join us in this workshop to learn how to leverage user testing and feedback, and how to be ok with being wrong.
4. What’s in an MVP? - (FULL)
If you’ve spent any amount of time designing or building digital products, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the concept of MVP – Minimum Viable Product. But, what does that really mean? How minimum is minimum? How viable is viable? There isn’t one right answer. We’ll talk about all this and more as we unpack some different ideas around how to determine your next MVP.
