Iterative Triggers - Understanding what drives us to make changes

Christopher Stephan

It's important to understand the power and value of an iterative approach to design and development. However, as we iterate and improve we should be aware of what REALLY drives the evolution of our work. Who are we listening to, and why do they get to be the drivers of our effort?

In this talk we'll look at Iterative Triggers, the drivers that cause us to change, to try again, to push ourselves and do better work. In doing so we'll examine not only which triggers we commonly respect and respond to, but also our full range of options.

Furthermore, we will explore how trigger selection can have a direct impact on mitigating bias and eliminating unexamined prejudice from design, development, and business decisions.

Learning Objectives & Outcomes:
Understand the dynamics involved in deriving value from the iterative process when applied to design and development.

Learn how how individual, group, leadership, and person-served dynamics are expressed as pressures on iteration.

Appreciate how selecting and planning to engage different perspectives in the design and development process can reduce prejudice and bias in implemented technology and systems.
