I have over 10 years of hands-on work experience in UX leadership,


design and research for Enterprise SaaS solutions. The past 5 years I

design decisions on insights, user needs and business goals.

TEAM BUILDING INITIATIVES

TED style talks to the larger IBM design Community

Facilitated Design Aligns A design align is where we gather the project


team to one location and identify personas, as-is and to-be scenarios
among other activities. This is the kick off of the project.

Facilitating a cognitive team I brought together a select group of


researchers and a visual designer (from different locations) to research
What it means to be cognitive.

Exploratory designs During a project I schedule time where we gather


the design team to do exploratory design work. I use research we
conducted earlier on in the project to guide the team in rethinking
concepts.
