PERMISSIONED DATA


QUESTION
What if data was owned by users?

We need to be smarter in data managment.

Somewhere down the line, we agreed that all our digital data (effort, clicks, and taps) are used for commerce.

PAGE BASED DESIGN IS GETTING OLD


QUESTION
Do you think our tools force us to design in pages, and our ecosystems to think in functional experiences.

IT IS TIME FOR
PERSMISSIONED DATA


Concern:
Our whole ecosystem is based on the fact that we use every click or tap for commerce instead of relationship building.

We have become used to the fact that our generated data may be owned by the company you interact with.

If we switch to permissioned data we can build Stellar experiences and start building relationships in the digital space.

DESIGN FOR
EXPERIENCE GAPS


Concern:
Every time we switch a digital touch point we create an experience gap. Focus on negative emotions to create positive experiences.
We separate engagement in our digital domain in too many channels.

Ad/Chat → Website/App store → Download → Install → Onboarding → Email → Validation → App

How might we reduce the above in one channel?

Do we design experiences or engagement?


Concern:
Every company has the main objective to create and keep customers. Shouldn't we be focusing on facilitating engagement and building relationships if that is our objective?
Design Conversations around what your customers want, design shared experiences. Add character and authenticity, build Conversational Assistants.

Become hospitable in the digital space and design for people basd on for time, context and location.

Revolutionize digital product design.

How do we achieve Stakeholder Truth?


Concern:
Without product vision, a just cause, moral compass and public design principles you don't know with whom to can collaborate in the digital space.

Facilitate the definition of your clients meaningful conversational brand, conversational assistant and design principles.

Stakeholder Truth can only be achieved through co-creation. Define Stakeholder truth and become hospitable in the digital space.

Are we helping our client to servicing their customers to the best of our abilities?


Concern:
Customers expect 24/7 service. Perhaps we should start building conversational assistants instead of applications.
Don't talk about your product. Don't even talk about the experience with your product. Talk about the emotions and concerns people have in your domain. That will resonates with your customers.

Be genuinely interested in your customers, and build assistants instead of applications.

WHAT IS THE ATTITUDE OF YOUR APPLICATION?


Concern:
90% of the digital application tell people what to do! Wouldn't it be better if we asked people what they need, want, desire or aspire?

DIY Workshop

The attitude of our software of often quite harsh, we tell people what to do. We expect them they know what to do.

Facilitate the Conversational Assistant in our business.

What is a Design system?


Concern:
We often use terminology the wrong way. Is an UI Toolkit a design system or part of a design system?
A Design system is a design process based on a single source of truth, which enables a group of people, teams or organisation to work towards a high quality objective or outcome. A design system defines what is important to your brand, and how you work & progress together. It enables people to deliver their best work by compounding effort & insight.
Stellar UX Toolkit

Could we revolutionize the Internet with permissioned data?


Concern:
What new possibilties would emerge if we chose a bold stance and started designing with permissioned data.
The Internet is broken. We lost our way. It is time that brands reclaim the digital space and bring back design ethics.

Win the hearts of your customers and start a new conversational ecosystem outside of the walled gardens.
