What would happen if we would bring design, front end, back end etc. all together? How could we improve the user-flows by thinking of alternative, non-happy flows? What would happen to the performance and therefore the user-experience when back end is already involved before the finalised wireframes are handed over?! 

That's all nice and dandy. But we do need to deal with some concerns like:

-           Knowledge gap: How can the different disciplines with their specialty understand each other and come to conclusions?

-           Shared responsibilities: Where do start and where do they end?

-           Efficiency: What would it do to the efficiency of the team when they get different tasks?

In this session we’ll dive in together;

- seeing what the pro's and con's are of a multidisciplinaire way of working,

- what tips and tricks can be exchanged,

- and what kind of tools can help in smoothing out the concerns that arise
