Slides for the talk presented at UX Australia 2015.
As User Experience disciplines gain importance, and a voice at the big tables, practitioners have become strategists, leaders, managers and decision-makers.
At the same time, both startups and mature companies are changing the way they operate: think lean, act nimble, have a sharp focus on the product.
This transition has opened the doors for new challenges and new opportunities for design leaders, and a new kind of game. Taking inspirations from personal experience as well as vast research of case studies on the topic, the talks goes through some of the key points of creating and scaling up an experience design team: skills, processes, organization, accountability, collaboration, culture, delegation and other funky words are mentioned.
