Designers are Developers Too: Bringing design and development together to drive customer-centred thinking

28th Sep 2022 1:00pm - 1:45pm Hosted by Yorkshire Building Society

This short talk outlines the practical steps the YBS Digital Tribe has undertaken to increase customer centricity and put members at the heart of everything it develops. We’ll look at how we’ve integrated UX into our teams, practically how we plan and schedule work alongside development activity, how we position and qualify value with our stakeholders, and get the whole team thinking member first.

This event will be a co-sponsored event hosted by George Bishop from Yorkshire Building Society and Paddy Lemons from consultancy Burendo.
