Aaron Ron Irizarry, then a Design Director, Capital One

Aaron aka “Ron” is a design director at Capital One. He loves all things user experience, problem-solving and org design. Having worked for Fox/IGN, HP, Nasdaq, and now Capital One, Aaron loves sinking his teeth into complex problems. Aaron speaks at events and provides training for companies on design team structure, communication, and collaboration. He is the co-author of Discussing Design: Improving Communication and Collaboration through Critique. More importantly, Aaron is a master of the BBQ arts, lover of heavy metal and a lifelong Dodgers fan.

As our field grows, technology advances and users develop new expectations for the products they use, we are challenged to build teams that deliver best-in-class products and services.

When we look at what it takes to build successful, high-performing teams, we see that our opportunity for success doesn’t solely lie in the skills we hire for, but in setting a foundation for successful team (and org) outcomes by creating an environment for our teams to do their best work and be their best selves.

In this presentation, Aaron will share insights, tools, and techniques (gathered from personal success and failures) for building environments that set teams up for success.

Viewers will walk away with:
* Insights into creating a foundation for your teams to do their best work.
* Building a team vision that supports team autonomy
* Tips for increasing team communication and collaboration.
* Dealing with conflict within teams and with partners (navigating workplace politics)

Aaron was speaking at 2019’s FinTech Design Summit New York.
