Read how I’ve worked with a specific organization.

In 2024 I’ve been working with one of the largest computers companies to up the skills and strategy of their leadership and team members. I’ve provided three workshops to meet different team division needs.

First, I walked 20 team members through a processes to define their UX Outcomes, UX Success metrics, UX Progress metrics, and Problem-value metrics. We identified the improvements their teams could make in the products and services they were working on.

Next, I led 20 similar team members through a proven process for crafting a UX vision meant to capture the imagination of your entire organization. I taught the techniques and practices they need to keeping everyone in their roganization focused on achieving that vision.

Now, I’m leading 20 emerging leaders in becoming the leaders their organization needs. They’re understanding how to led an enthusiastic adoption of human-centered design and research and securing earlier involvement in critical strategic decisions by building solid relationships with senior stakeholders and executives.

I’ve taken a tailored approach to different needs of the organization and its team. Team members have told me they learned how to, “Build a clear understanding of how we are improving people’s lives and continuously drive awareness and understanding around outcomes until all of organization finally gets it!” 

It’s been a valuable partnership for their organization and myself. Let’s make a partnership that best fits your needs.

For years I’ve worked with folks one-onone to consider a myriad of different sources, perspectives, and approaches. Years of experience testing, consulting, and providing teams with their curated approaches can be applied to yous specific needs.
