Design in crisis - StopCOVID NI mobile app
Approved 1
How do cross-functional, distributed teams manage when faced with the task of creating a new digital product, using emerging technologies, urgently?

Framed by the story of the design and development of the StopCOVID NI mobile app (the contact tracing app for Northern Ireland), this webinar will explore the challenges faced by all stakeholders in this unique scenario. It will focus on insights and learnings that relate to digital product development (design, user research, project management, stakeholder engagement), but also those that may have wider relevance and applicability.
