UX14 - UX Strategy : Organizing for Innovation (Liam Friedland)

Understanding systems behavior is an essential part of any UX strategist’s toolkit. In this talk, I will introduce systems-thinking concepts that are of practical use to UX strategists in their day-to-day planning, organizing, and influencing. I discuss businesses as systems, or holoarchies, and introduce some simple, yet powerful tools for analyzing organizational stakeholders and creating influencing strategies. Finally, I present UX itself as a meme for driving organizational renewal through innovation.

Please join me to learn how to transition from being an impotent, passive, holon subordinate to a regime-altering butterfly.

    and content in these slides are the result of a 14 year long creative collaboration with Jon Innes. Over the years Jon and I have had many lengthy and animated discussions on the topics of UX strategy, leadership, management, and tactics. The fruits of our chats have resulted in a series of tutorials, workshops, and presentations that have been delivered at CHI, UXPA, UX Strat, IXDA, and now UX India. Any errors in these slides are entirely my own.
