New Adventures 2019 - Jessica White's The Future is Cross-Functional

Published on

One of the underlying themes at New Adventures 2019 was the idea of multi-disciplinary teams and designing for everyone. Jessica White gave a brilliant talk about the importance of being cross-functional and gave many examples of how to foster it within a team. One idea I especially liked was for teams that are co-located you can simply move desk. It is one of the benefits of hot-desking, one day you could sit next to a designer then next you could sit next to someone in Finance. It doesn't matter how exactly you do it, as long as you are able to get the different perspectives and understand that everyone's opinion matters. Below are some notes I took while watching Jessica talk about working together in better ways.
