    The Art (and Value) of Saying No

    Ethan Adeland (Food Bloggers of Canada)

    +Read More
    -Read Less
    Too often in a start-up or entrepreneurial world, you feel forced into saying “yes” even though you know you really shouldn’t. When every dollar counts, you’re always able to somehow justify it but you have to know when you’re better off saying no. When something doesn’t feel right, be it the client, the project, the timeline and especially the budget, it’s because something isn’t right. Trusting your instincts and saying “no” in a thoughtful manner doesn’t mean the conversation is closed. In my experience, if you have something of value to offer, a considerate and well-reasoned “no” is rarely the end of the conversation and it shows you value what you’re offering and what you’re worth. Using personal experiences, I will demonstrate how saying “no” is really just saying “yes” and allowing yourself to open the next door.

    As a community of developers, we need to place priority on seeking interdependence instead of independence – in our technology choices, our hiring practices and the way we interact with team members. If we are to move forward together we need to talk about the hard things: how to cultivate empathy, when to speak up, when to stay quiet, how to build trust, and how to handle conflict without imploding.

    The systems we're building today are more complex and nebulous than ever before, and user expectations have never been higher. As designers we're asked to create for an innumerable combination of users, devices and contexts and we all want every one of those combinations to be consistent, engaging and enjoyable. How do we do this? The answer is to design less, in the traditional sense. See how our process has evolved into thinking more about creating systems, and only designing what is needed when it is needed.

    As the lines between digital and physical interactions fade and the expectation from users is a consistent and integrated experience across all touchpoints, there’s a common struggle to design, build and manage channels that deliver a quality and cohesive experience for users and customers. Service design can help. Service design is a methodology used by companies from Disney to Starbucks to Nike and has been referred to as the “most important design discipline you’ve never heard of.” In this session, we’ll look at what it is, how it’s used and learn about some key tools and tangible methods to enhance the experience for your users across multiple touchpoints and ensure you’re able to deliver it for the long run. We’ll look at customer journey maps, service blueprints, design research methods and more. The session is applicable for a variety of disciplines, including UX, marketing, IT, CX, product development and anyone responsible for the delivery of a service.
