Frontconference Zürich 2019

The i.AM Innovation Lab took part in the Frontconf 2019 where industry leaders shared their insights about their daily work.

The following videos contain three key takeaways of these two exciting days, which can readily be implemented in user research, product design, and leadership in the Asset Management industry.

1 – Only 5 users are needed for a meaningful user test. Ida Aalens even explained this mathematically.

2 – Social media connects the world, but humans need more than connection. Designers should be responsible for building systems that support prosocial behaviour.

3 – “What if you don’t send them and they stay?” is Andy Budd’s answer to the typical question arising when a staff member is sent to a conference, but soon after leaves the company.
