How do cross-functional, distributed teams manage when faced with the task of creating a new digital product, using emerging technologies, urgently? This webinar was held on 20 October 2020, presented by Stephen Shaw

Framed by the story of the design and development of the StopCOVID NI mobile app (the contact tracing app for Northern Ireland), this webinar explored the challenges faced by all stakeholders in this unique scenario. It focussed on insights and learnings that relate to digital product development (design, user research, project management, stakeholder engagement), but also those that may have wider relevance and applicability.

Stephen Shaw, Design Director at Big Motive

An experienced designer and experienced architect, Stephen has worked for a wide range of brands and businesses including Catalyst, Net-A-Porter, Quinn, Queen's University, Allstate, Energia, Omniplex, Diageo, Channel 4 and the BBC.

In 2020, he led the design of the 'StopCOVID NI' contact tracing app for Northern Ireland, the first to launch in the UK, endorsed by the UK ICO as best practice in design for data privacy, and the first in the world to be interoperable with other regions.
