The Change Journey: from technology driven to design oriented in a B2B company

Key Learnings

  • How to make UX measurable to the top management
  • How to start a change project that can impact the organization
  • What issues can be encountered in the introduction of a UX oriented approach

Description

In a technology driven B2B company often there is the belief that technology is innovation. Application of the latest technology is done by pure focusing on the technical solution of a problem with no regards to how the final user will perceive and use the technology. This can result in a very complex solution, which generates a “wow” effect when presented by the experts, but unfortunately, it is destined to stay in the customer’s drawer: unused.

If we really care about innovation, we must consider the customer experience. Indeed, new technology is really an innovation when it meets customer needs.

We want to share with you our change journey to make our software products more user-oriented.
