Monday: A one-hour Talk UX Strategy session, which is often on the UX Strategy Leader's topic of the week. (But not every week.) This session is open to everyone in the Leaders of Awesomeness community, so there are often 400 or more people attending.
While Monday sessions are opened to the community, Tuesday-Friday sessions are only for members of the Center Centre UX Strategy Leaders program. This means the sessions are intimate. Which means you’ll have a ton of access to Jared.
Tuesday: A one-hour Topic Up-Close session, where we explore the topic in-depth and discuss its subtleties and nuances. This is tailored for the organizations attending the session to address their specific needs. Each week, there's homework assigned to map the topic directly to your UX strategy.
Wednesday: A one-hour Strategy Reflection session, where we reflect on what you've done in the past. What has worked and what hasn't?
Thursday: A one-hour Strategy Planning session, where we look forward and plan the next steps for you to take. What will you do differently in the next week? In the next month? Over the next year? We'll review the homework in this session.
Friday: A one-hour Hot Seat session, where up to four organizations bring challenges for the group to work through. These challenges can be on any topic. They don't have to be specific to what we talked about that week (but they often turn out to be).
We record every session, so if you miss one, you can catch up easily.
The topics are published in advance, so you can choose which sessions you wish to attend.
Most people spend, at most, an hour or 2 in the program each week. During weeks where the topic is very relevant, We've seen people spend 5 or more hours when the topic is super relevant to their work.
Some people skip entire weeks. They'll catch up by watching the recordings, if the topics are of interest.
What you get out of this program is what you put into it. It's clear the people spending the most time in the program see the most change in their organizations. That's because they’re getting the support of a great team: Jared, the Center Centre team, invited Industry Experts, and a few dozen smart UX leaders who are also part of the program. The sooner you join the program, the sooner you can have this support.
Whatever your time zone or schedule, we’ve got you covered.
We move the session times around to accommodate as many folks as we can. Currently, we have members from 18 different time zones.
Every session is recorded and posted in the program. You can watch any recorded session at your convenience.
The program space is always available. Jared and our team keep a close eye on it. We are happy to respond to questions there, too. The nice thing about asking a question in the program space is you'll likely get responses from other UX leaders. It's a wonderful, supportive group.
Wondering how to get budget approval?
Join an information session
, and we’ll talk you through how to make a business case. You can even bring key folks from your organization (the people you need budget approval from), and we can make the business case for you.
Bring your team. Bring your stakeholders.
If you join as a team, we open up the program to everyone you’re working with. You can bring in product managers, IT or engineering leaders, and other critical stakeholders to get your biggest challenges under control.
You’ll no longer have to be put on the spot and have all the answers because you’ll have us there as part of the team.
While there’s no limit on how many people you can include, you’ll want to limit it to those who are essential to making change happen.
Together, we’ll dramatically improve your team’s
