Analysing & Synthesising UX Research at Glovo

In this talk, Valentina aims to share her process and its benefits, as an inspiration for other professionals juggling remote dynamics these days.

Research analysis and synthesis can be quite extensive and energy-draining steps within the UXR process. Yet both are key to distilling relevant actionable outcomes for dissemination, if you are navigating a fast-paced, disruptive professional reality like Glovo - where ‘GAS’ is one of the driving values - your UXR process should have quality, speed, and pragmatism in good balance. How can we make these process milestones more structured, targeted to what truly matters, and — why not — a bit more fun too? This event will be held in English. This community and event series focuses on women and non-binary people. We would like to encourage you to come to our meetups which are suitable for all experience levels.

The talk is a fast-paced, light-hearted review that is designed for maximum engagement. It was originally created about 5 years ago, so this is the 2021 update to include all the UX/UI and Product changes that have happened since then. It’s fun, irreverent and unflinchingly honest, and will hopefully help you to better manage your own professional development and ongoing UX career.

Meet-up: Man eating cereal & Other UX Stories

As a product manager, Gunjan evangelizes and conducts different kinds of user research in her organization. While plenty of these research sessions run smoothly, not all of them do!

This meetup is in the format of a storytelling session that recounts such research projects that we would usually call "failures", and the lessons we can still take from them. Inspired by fables and oral storytelling, this session invites you to interact, learn and reflect on what could be the moral(s) of these modern UX fables.
