Continuous Design

As design teams grow, effective collaboration is crucial. This entails establishing company-wide systems and practices that keep the customer at the center, empower cross-functional teams and align leaders. A social psychologist by training and a designer by trade, Kaaren uses the techniques from both worlds to drive teams toward desired outcomes, with a constant focus on customer empathy. Introducing such mindset and expertise to the Design and Customer Experience team at Chase, Kaaren Hanson emphasizes the need to be very deliberate in how the company operates as a single cohesive design, product, engineering and data team.

Bringing her experience leading the Chase design culture to UXDX, Kaaren will examine the concept of using design processes to help product teams work cohesively across large organizations. It would provide mechanisms that help teams anchor on the end-to-end customer experience, with strategies and tools for improving communication, transparency and efficiency, and do it well at scale. The end goal is to ensure teams are clear on what problem they’re solving and what outcome they’re driving toward.
