How should the principles and practices of Human-Centered Design (HCD), Agile development, and the overarching process of HCDAgile, be applied to products that have no obvious user interface? Many human-centered designers work on big data and data analytics projects, as these projects are critical to the success of many enterprises. But how do we apply what we know about HCD to projects that seem to not focus on humans, but rather, on data?

You are invited to join colleagues and practitioners in taking a look at these questions in this second HCDAgile for Data Summit.


  • Updates / announcements
  • Presentation by Kate Walton, Exxon Mobil

  • Q&A and discussion

In October 2019, a group of human-centered designers and agilists met in St. Louis to discuss this topic. Here’s an overview of the first session:

Kate has over 25 years of UX experience and is passionate about delivering value through deep user understanding.

Her first project at ExxonMobil was focused on data, and the scope has continued to grow as the need and opportunities for a strong data foundation have grown. Ever-evolving technology continuously makes her job new and interesting, and her latest data-focused projects have kept her on her game. She’s eager to share her experience and learn from others who are working in this space.
