Sketch You Can! Demystifying a Powerful Collaboration Technique
“This meeting is a waste of my time.”
When was the last time you had that thought? In this session, you will learn a skill that you can apply on the spot that will help you focus the conversation and drive to decisions.
You can do that by walking up to the whiteboard and drawing what people are talking about. By visually capturing the conversation in a public way, you will help all participants understand each other and come to agreement faster. But I can’t draw, you say. Neither can I, and I’ve been successfully using this technique for 20 years. If you can draw a straight-ish line, a squiggly line, an oval, and the alphabet, you have all the drawing skills necessary.
This technique is accessible to everyone. You don’t need any special software and anyone on the team can use it. Pick up the pen and get on track again.
Jeremy Kriegel, UX Manager for BzzAgent
An experienced practitioner and international speaker, Jeremy believes that just as we need to understand the needs and context of users to craft a design solution, success also requires us to look at the business context to craft an appropriate design process. From start-ups to Fortune 100 companies, as a consultant or on an internal team, he has seen many different scenarios that each required their own approach. He brings this diversity of experience to bear in adapting UX to agile methodologies, finding the balance appropriate for each business. Currently, Jeremy is the UX Manager for BzzAgent, which helps generate word-of-mouth marketing content.
