Bill Gribbons, PhD - Director of the graduate Human Factors program at Bentley University:
 
In this talk, we will examine the psychological variables influencing decision making and highlight how these factors affect a user’s performance navigating the many decisions embedded in our products and services. The heart of the problem is the act of complex decision making often exceeds our thinking capacity. To accommodate this resource shortfall the mind regularly employs a wide array of simplifying heuristics and biases that are typically “good enough” for the more mundane aspects of life but that result in less-than-optimum decisions in critical situations. And while we design assuming a logical, rational decision-making agent, we will also address the debilitating effects of emotions on decisions.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by UXPA LosAngeles. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Excerpt:

Almost every company, be it a UX/UI firm or any industry that has a UX team - all seem to have different team structures and working methods.

Have you experienced challenges or opposition when integrating UX practices and workflow into your organization? It can be a struggle to get every member of a business, product team or client on board with UX. Making the case for UX to designers, developers, clients, IT or management can be difficult so let’s journey through case studies to examine resistance and solutions.
