Cross-Disciplinary Teams for Great User Experiences
Whether you are part of a startup, or an employee in a large enterprise company, the best products will be the result of effective collaboration. Company-wide collaboration is necessary to deliver the best user experiences. Almost every department within an organization affects the user experience, from design to customer support. This talk will share real-life experiences and techniques for collaboration with the goal of inspiring how you approach interactions with peers and coworkers. Please bring your questions to the meetup!

As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about the relationship between UX, technology, and art. Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun.
Directly outside the front doors of the Hunt Library (on Partners Way) is an hourly lot. There is a mechanical arm at the entrance to this lot. You can pay by the hour at $2.00/ hour to park here. Just be prepared, as this lot only accepts credit cards (no cash).
Once parked, you will be entering the Hunt Library on the ground floor. The Duke Energy Room is up the yellow stairs and on your left.
