Away from the office but close to the heart: Is it possible to achieve high quality results in your projects working remotely with geographically distant team members?
Is it possible to achieve high quality results in your projects working remotely with geographically distant team members?
How to engage and reach full team collaboration while developing ideas and design complex products and services in that scenario?
What are the ways to guarantee the best user experience when you are not meeting in person with other team members?
I intend to share my learnings on the problems and solutions I faced in this kind of projects and show how to keep to an effective, productive and asynchronous way of work.
About the speaker
I’m a UX designer working with digital products since 1998. In 2003 I focused my career on information architecture, user research and interaction design.
I experienced 11 years working as an interaction designer and 6 years leading a large UX and UI team at UOL, one of the largest ISP and news portal in Portuguese language.
In 2015, I co-founded Mola Collective, an organization focused on design and innovative processes for small businesses and NGO’s.
Since last year I have been collaborating on several projects in an user-centered design and innovation consultant startup called Round Pegs. I have had the opportunity to work with multicultural and international professionals where I could dive deep into the challenges of remote work while establishing a good process to guarantee an engaging and successful environment.
I’m also researching the same subject - Creative process in remote teams - in a Masters at Pontifical Catholic University (PUC) of São Paulo, at Digital Design department.
