“This is about people. It’s about communication”, says Ola. The ways in which organisations are structured and managed are still in many ways rooted in the history of the industrial revolution.

Dave Gray wants to change the way you think. By changing the way you think you can achieve the change you want says Dave. His latest book Liminal Thinking gives you a set of principles and practices to follow.
Liminal Thinking is “the art of creating change by understanding, shaping, and reframing beliefs”. We talk to Dave about the journey that led him to the concept of liminal thinking, find out what liminal thinking actually is and take a look at some of the principles and practices in the book.

We were lucky enough to meet up with Whitney Hess during her summer vacation in Sweden. We talk to Whitney about her journey from “producer of wireframes” to coaching UX-ers. How to you design yourself? How do you give yourself permission to do your best work? “You need to stop doing the things you don’t want to do. If you don’t want to do wireframes, stop doing wireframes.” says Whitney.
