Leading the Way in User Experience!

UPA 2012 will explore all the opportunities usability professionals have to be leaders that shape not just human experiences, but also the business and technology world. Themes of influence, power, authority, and initiative will be prevalent as we develop strategies for encouraging Leadership in our field by:

  • Exploring the differences between leadership and management and understanding how a title doesn’t make a leader
  • Designing experiences that demonstrate the vision and problem-solving skills inherent in our profession
  • Leveraging our personal experiences with leadership to help others develop influence in their organizations
  • Acknowledging other fields and professions that can inform our professional growth
  • Exploring the need for everyone to demonstrate leadership and ways to make that happen 

The 2012 UPA conference program will provide inspiration and motivation through talks, events, and experiences to increase our attendees’ passion for leading the way. In addition, the conference aims to provide sessions to help build and grow leadership skills so that our attendees leave with both the desire and means to lead.
