10:30 am - 11:00 am The Decision Experience: Simplifying & Optimizing Choice Architecture

Rob Gifford - Managing Director, Experience Design, Mad*Pow
From retirement funds to insurance quotes, financial service companies are employing digital experiences to bring more choice directly to their customers. While this choice is often empowering, it can also be disorienting if we don’t design them with predictable behavior patterns in mind. During his keynote, Rob will provide a grounding in the psychology of
choice and outline practical ways to simplify decisions so we can leave our consumers feeling confident and satisfied.
Topics addressed:

+What key behaviors and limitations guide consumer choice?
+ How do we make options easier to compare and evaluate?
+ How much choice is too much?
+ What type of decision guidance and support is most effective?

11:00 am - 11:30 am The Experience Continuum: Uniting Digital, Physical, and Mobile to the Customer POV

Jarrod Joplin - SVP Experience Design, Bank of America
Your customer does not interact with channels in silos, instead experiences a holistic omnichannel experience. Therefore, experience design cannot survive in these siloed channels as well. Design must be curated and executed through the point of view of the customer creating delightful moments to retain today’s loyalty.
 
+Create products with purpose and integration
+ Speak with a consistent brand language across channels
+Coordinate a seamless vision of the complete customer experience

11:30 am - 12:00 pm The Elusive Good Experience: Can You Really Design an Experience?

Jonathan Mann - Vice President, User Experience Design, Renaissance Learning
A common misperception of an Experience Designer is that we directly design an experience. Since an experience is an internal subjective state, we are really designing the potential for an experience. In this session, I'll show how human minds can make this job harder than we think due to the often unpredictable and irrational way humans perceive and remember their experiences. You'll learn to:
·         Recognize how these factors contribute to the overall experience
·         Leverage the quirks of the irrational mind to increase the potential for an experience
·         Create impact remembered by your customer
