Scaling UX: Why Context Matters When it Comes to the Methods We Choose with Josh Evnin

22 July 2014
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

19 West 22nd
Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10010

Context matters, obviously. Why is the ethnographic research you employed viewed as vital at some organizations but wasteful at others? Is a Lean UX an appropriate approach at every company, on every project? And why doesn't usability testing happen at all companies at this point?

We will discuss what context is, what it means and why it matters - not only for user experience decisions, but also when it comes to methods we employ on projects and with our clients.

At GrubHub Inc., Josh leads a team that facilitates the creation of excellent user experiences across the GrubHub and Seamless platforms for restaurants and the hungry people they serve. He works to understand business goals as well as user behavior and designs product solutions to merge the two. Josh has deep interests in research, design, product management and agile software development, and he works to create an environment where these focuses can come together to create remarkable products.
