Designing for Collaboration

Standards. Responsive design. Mobility. These topics are among the most important discussions happening in the web design and development worlds, a fact demonstrated by the impressive keynote speakers lined up for this conference. But are we having the right discussions? Developers focus on the details of implementation, applying their expertise and creativity to channel ideas through the user's technology. Designers focus on presentation and interface, specifying interactive features and aesthetic details that channel ideas through the user's experience. But who is guiding the strategy beyond that inflection point where ideas become meaningful innovations? In too many cases, the individual or group at the helm is following a well-worn track around the dangerous obstacles of irrelevance and inaccessibility when they could be looking to the horizon and imagining a new destination. Go beyond the familiar patterns in your design process by addressing the three most important questions our community can ask: 1. Who are we? 2. How can we get together? 3. What can we do? In this session, you will learn how mapping influence networks, modeling environments, and envisioning capabilities can help you create products, services, and communities that enable empowerment, collaboration, and social change. Examples of each technique will be illustrated in a live case-study re-enactment. Participants will share their ideas and perspectives on a real issue, using the guiding questions to create strategic assets in real time. Each participant will also be given templates and sample assets from the actual case study for future reference. Experience Level:
Intermediate - Assumes basic knowledge of topic and some experience.
Prerequisite Knowledge: This workshop will benefit those with some professional experience in web design or development, but requires no specific knowledge. I have listed the experience level as intermediate, but beginners may be inspired by the ideas and advanced practitioners are most likely the ones able to immediate put the ideas into practice. Skills/Knowledge Gained:
