In short, everything.
Does your work culture make it challenging for your team or organization to do great work? Well this could be the year you make it better. At Fluxible 2013, our very own Teresa Brazen, Design Education Strategist, delivered a 30 minute talk, Make Culture, Not War: The Secret of Great Teams and Organizations, about the role and impact of culture on organizations. Of particular interest to the UX crowd, she explained how designers are uniquely positioned to influence culture by employing familiar tools from our bag of tricks. Enjoy (and share!) the video below!
If you’re interested in getting your hands dirty, you (and perhaps a few folks from your team/organization) might want to check out our newly launched 1-day Designing Culture Master Class. This training aims to help people intentionally approach their team or organizational culture – through a cultural assessment, visioning and goal-setting exercises, and development of a tactical plan to improve their culture (some of the topics Teresa hits on in her talk below). Teresa and Susan Dybbs, Managing Director of Interaction Design at Cooper, will be teaching the course in our San Francisco offices on Friday, January 31st.
We are also offering Designing Culture in-house training for organizations that would benefit from having a larger group (management, teams, etc) go through this process together. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
