Make Yourself Heard! Selling User Experience in Your Organization

When it comes to selling user experience(UX) processes, methods and techniques in our organizations, even experienced practitioners often don't always know how to sell effectively. We advocate for taking a very basic approach, one that looks at business goals, aligns our usability work with their objectives, and demonstrates how usability tools, methods and techniques can help accomplish business goals. This experienced practitioner session provides practical examples, tools and stories that attendees can use to help sell UX more effectively in their organizations. by Jodi Sherman, Daniel Szuc, John Rhodes Managing User Experience for Advanced Practitioners (AP)
