Crafting a UX Community of Practice!

Crafting a UX Community of Practice!

This week, I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with my colleagues: Heather McCollum, Calum McDonald, Stergios Kritikos, and Bilen Mujdaba at Barclays Eagle Labs on Wednesday night 6 March 2024.

The Goal

Together, we discussed our journey in establishing a UX community of practice— a grassroots initiative here at the Barclays Glasgow campus.

Uplift to Barclays' Value and Business Impact

We reflected on our accomplishments over the past 12 months since launching this initiative. We delved into what went well, the challenges we faced, and the lessons we learned. From our initial introductory UX talk – raising awareness of the UX practice to hosting Creative Problem-solving Workshops on campus.

This week’s talk has further fueled our commitment to fostering a design-led approach to problem-solving, regardless of the scale of the challenge in any project.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended, asked insightful questions, and engaged with us during the event!
