Event Description

perfect stormThe world of web application design is expanding at a rapid rate. We're now expected to design great experiences across a huge variety of platforms, from small screens to large displays. The flood of iPad applications and successful online businesses are showing our executives that design matters.

Why is all this happening now? Where is it all going? UIE's own Jared Spool will show you how four driving forces-market maturity, the emergence of experience, Kano's model, and Sturgeon's Law - are increasing the visibility and value of design in organizations everywhere. He'll show you what the next generation of design teams will look like and how you'll get there.
