KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Defining and Embracing the Experience Landscape in 2021

After about 20 years of mainstream business operation, there is a great deal of buzz around the world of experience design (XD). Closer examination of the discipline as a whole, however, reveals a tremendous amount of ambiguity and the need for greater understanding and ways to better define holistic operation and collaboration across the discipline’s landscape.

In order to accomplish this, it’s important to understand the purpose and value proposition associated with each of the contributing elements.

In this talk, Darren will provide practical insights about:

  • How to view and define each of the XD disciplines and tenets — customer experience, user experience, learning experience, and brand experience
  • And, share examples on how the disciplines can be integrated to optimize organizational, customer-based, and individual success
