Presentation: Tweet"We're all Designers: Encouraging Collaboration in Design Without Forming a Committee"
Product design and development often involves many people of different roles who enter and leave at different parts of a project. However, this can cause communication problems and responses that sound like "you're the designer", "that'll take too much time", or "that's not my job" when people attempt to collaborate. Catt Small, a Product Designer at SoundCloud, will discuss methods used to cross silos in order to speed up the design and development process while also building camaraderie, agency, and transparency. People will come away from this talk with strategies to communicate better across teams and transition toward a more efficient, collaborative environment.
