Imagine that you have two deeply rooted, well-established teams in your organization — design and engineering. Collectively, they consist of highly skilled practitioners who are capable of solving your organization's greatest challenges. However, to accomplish this, they must be able to effectively collaborate on various projects and present their results to key stakeholders. So how do you bring these teams together and enable them to communicate the data from complex projects in a way makes it actionable and easy for stakeholders to digest? Join Kanika Rehani as she explains how organizations can blur the roles of designers and engineers, allowing them to gather the right answers and draw patterns together. Kanika shares tips and tricks that can help agile teams reduce a lot of the noise in their data, and extract the necessary information to tell their product's quality story. Come and learn how to build a strong heterogeneous team foundation based on a combination of solid design and engineering practices.
