Speaker Spotlight: Traci Lepore and the Director’s Chair
What does directing have to do with UX process? We know a director is responsible for strategic vision. But, did you know the Director is also responsible for ensuring a successful outcome that both meets their own vision? Did you also know it must be in line with the Producer’s desires and budget?
