MIKE SALES. Stakeholder Management. Mike will discuss ways to balance the business and creative demands on any high profile digital project, producing a great user experience, increasing engagement and delivering on the financial return.

DAVE STANTON: Reactive Wireframing. I will describe a workflow for creating dynamic wireframes that incorporate persona-level nuances and leverage mock API services to validate data assumptions as well. These wireframes can be used for usability testing and can be easily modified at the persona level as testing uncovers usability problems.
