About this session

Plan a new sprint. Build this. Add that to the backlog. We're constantly building new features and products to satisfy the needs of every single person on the planet. Modern day design methodologies keeps tech teams running and business teams hustling. But isn't it time we stop and take a step back?

UX is not just a tool for businesses to make more money. It is a step towards ethical ecosystems where we can create value for the industry. Designers are the bridges that lead the way to ethical processes; and it’s time for a more thoughtful way to run how we build things.
