Digital initiatives are often ineffective because organisations aren’t ready to become user centric. Initiatives, such as digital marketing or User Experience Design (UX) are added as magic ingredients, but the business itself needs to change to focus on their customers.
This presentation is based on a case study in a bank in Johannesburg, South Africa. The case study formed the basis for a Lean UX Framework that is currently being implemented in a leading GIS company in both the Netherlands and in South Africa. The goal of the Lean UX Framework is to track and report UX progress in organisations in any stage of UX maturity, giving feedback to the organisation of where they are on their digital transformation journey and how to progress along the UX maturity path.

I will talk about the impact that design has on development.

Data, I know what you're thinking; bar graphs pie charts and all the usuals, but not in this presentation. This presentation will inspire you to look at data differently, from using medical data and converting it into design, facebook interaction data into dance steps, and turning everyday data into a design. The talk is based on a project done by two ladies in Britain and The United States. I myself am also doing the project and it really makes you think about data and visualising it differently. Sure some of it you cannot apply in UX but I am sure it will inspire the audience and also you could use it in UI. I will also be doing a live demonstration with the audience and their data. This presentation I think will inspire us all to view data in a very different light

How we can make Johannesburg the international benchmark for sustainable social, economic and technological practices.
We will explore the theme of co-creation and co-design and how both UX and Service Design are methodologies that facilitate business strategy. Candice and Alan will be taking you through the meaning behind the concepts of co-create and co-design and why the need for its application is growing.
This presentation will share design solutions developed to address the wicked-problem of addiction. In particular, the conversation will focus on the use of the Firma Model to decode the social reality of substance misuse and the application of information architecture in ideation to encode new solution-oriented meanings into the design programme.
One of the most important world industries is one which we rely on for quality of life. The renewable energy industry could address some of humanity’s biggest challenges and is ripe for disruption. As UX pioneers we have the ability to transform the industry into one which is accessible to all, and build a sustainable way of life for ourselves and future generations.
