The theme for UX STRAT 2017 is Transformation Outward / Transformation Inward. Transformation Outward is about the latest strategies and approaches that leading companies are using to design products, services and experiences that meet the needs and expectations of a rapidly evolving customer base. Transformation Inward is about how leading companies are changing their internal structures to design and develop more successful, innovative products, services and experiences.
