Bring Your Customers to Life With Personas - Tash Keuneman

Nov 12, 2014




Personas are data-driven representations of your customers. At Atlassian, personas are used company wide: from the development teams to marketing, we're all catering for the same set of customers. Tash will you show how the whole company is involved in the persona creation process: using affinity mapping, design walls, user journeys and workshops, and of course, Confluence.
