Workshop #2 Eleanor Stowe

Design in Change Roles

In the world of change, there are numerous roles and job descriptions, most of which share a lot of skills and techniques that can be used across all of them and beyond into business as usual. You even see a lot of change professionals moving seamlessly from one change role to another; from Project Management, through Business Analysis to Product Management. Design roles are also a piece of the puzzle and no matter which change role you’re currently performing, in all change roles, an element of design will need to be utilised.

In this talk I’ll be going through:
• The design process and it’ similarities which other change lifecycles
• What activities design roles, business analysis and product roles share
• Techniques from the design toolkit that can be useful in business analysis, stakeholder management and other areas of change
• Other design techniques which you can use in any role in any business.

First WTF and now the Shops are Back!

Shop windows welcoming shoppers and customers back after Covid19 lockdown

For those of you seriously not feeling too keen on the idea you’ll be glad to hear that there’s still a lot going on that you don’t need to get dressed for.
