Dealing with Noobs: How to Work with Non-Technical People

About the Session

The secret to being the hero of your story? Helping others be the hero of theirs.

Take a business problem you need to solve: for example, adding a new form of payment into an app. Everyone involved with the project is going to worry about something different. The Product Owner needs to fit this in among other issues facing the product. The Designer needs to seamlessly combine this with existing payment methods. The CFO handles the tax implications of distributing the newly collected revenue.

None of these concerns are “wrong”, and understanding how to address everyone’s concerns is the key to a successful partnership. This talk will show you how to set the stage for successful business relationships and ultimately become the hero of your own story.
