How UX Solves Problems for Devs and Their Clients

Save Time, Money, and Sanity

The execution of a product's design is often more important than the original idea. And very often, developers and dev teams are left feeling like they just have to build what the client asks for, even if it's a poor idea or poor execution.

Adding UX to the process can be a winner for you and your client or startup. In this presentation, you will learn:

  • How the User-Centered Design (UCD) process is way more than wireframes, and sets developers up for success.
  • How to include the UX process into your Lean, Waterfall, or Agile environment.
  • How UX's approach to product design can run interference with a client. UX handles the client who can't decide, changes his mind, is afraid to change his mind, or wants another round of revisions (but magically doesn't like to pay for them).
  • How UX's tasks are not a mysterious black box.
  • How to build once, build more efficiently with UX blueprints and documentation.

Debbie Levitt has been a UX strategist, designer, and consultant for over 20 years. She and her teams have worked with a variety of developers and styles. Learn how your dev day can be just a little brighter when UX adds empathy, design thinking, and magic to your process.

Debbie Levitt has been a UX practitioner and corporate trainer since she started her website design company in 1995. Back then, she was strategizing websites for The Miss America Organization, Schering-Plough, local businesses, and customizing large eCommerce sites before off-the-shelf systems were a thing. On the side, she taught school teachers to write HTML and stop stealing images off the web.

Debbie has presented at conferences including eBay Live, PayPal's Developer Conference, UXPA, and Convey UX. She has been training UX practitioners on Axure software since 2013 and is one of few instructors on the planet recommended by Axure.

Axure trainees have included employees of Oracle, Salesforce, NBC Universal, Intuit, Sony, CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), Newport News Shipbuilding, and consultancies including Razorfish, Fjord, Rauxa, and Slalom Consulting.

Outside of training, Debbie fills her time with UX strategy and design consulting and projects for Fortune 500 companies, agencies, and startups. Clients have given her the nickname, "Mary Poppins," because she flies in, solves the problems, improves everything she can, sings a few songs, and flies away to her next adventure.
