Challenge

Field Marketing wanted to refresh the design of the sessions listing and agenda pages to better match the corporate design changes to the conference website.

Concept

Based on mock-ups from Creative Marketing, I worked to capture the design requirements and ensure that the customer journey for building an agenda remained a usable experience.

A major change request was to move the filters from an unmanageable, scrolling list of check boxes to select boxes for the faceted search located above the sessions content instead of to the left. This allowed more horizontal space to display session content.

Deliverables

I created wireframes for vetting the design with business stakeholders and wrote the functional design specifications document. These went on to work as a blueprint for our developers.

Post-development, I created our quality assurance test plans and administered QAT and UAT with stakeholders.

Development

As with the first version of this project, we were constrained by the existing website and corporate design. New functionality was implemented as directed by the webteam.

I tracked all development work through JIRA.
