Building a UX Team
Whether you have the chance to start from scratch or you join an established team, building a UX team can be a significant challenge.
This talk will cover how you can create a team profile, managing across projects and locations, developing better craft and what to do when it all goes wrong.
Jane Murison is Head of UX&D for Knowledge & Learning and Children’s at BBC Future Media and Technology. After a MSc in Information Processing, she started her professional life as a Usability Specialist at a small agency in London. During her eight years at the BBC, she’s worked on Social Media, Content Management, Mobile, IPTV, and recently Knowledge & Learning (Vikings, recipes, exam revision and polar bears) and Children’s (CBBC and CBeebies).
Project work ranges from iPlayer on TV (including the new PS3 version), the mobile homepage and games for kids (this recent one is excellent: http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/games/barkmania-game ). She moved North in 2010, and is one of those responsible for building a now 16-strong UX team in BBC North. She manages UX designers in London, Salford, and Glasgow.
