Visma UX Days 2020: Going remote with 100 designers

Visma aims to be an agile, fast-moving organisation – but how does UX fit in? This year, our annual UX Days event focused on how UX goes together with agile and why business, tech, agile and UX is actually a perfect match.

What is UX Days?

2020 has been (and still is) a year unlike any other. However, this did not stop us from running our beloved yearly UX Days event where we gather all designers in Visma for two days of knowledge sharing, learning and inspiration.

We just had to do things slightly differently! This year, close to 100 UX Designers got together to spend two half days online. We can safely say that running it online did not stop us from having fun!

Business, tech, agile and UX–a perfect match

We kicked things off with a Visma Talk on why Business, tech, agile and UX is a perfect match, hosted by Jens Wedin and Peter Olovsson from SeventyOne Consulting.

They then went on to facilitate a workshop on the same topic. The designers were divided into breakout rooms and got to reflect on a series of questions about how we measure the success of our products and design together using Mural.

Many good ideas came up from the design community that we will pick up and continue to work with in Visma. 

We ended the first day with some fun, inviting everyone to three online after works hosted through Airbnb Online Experiences – something we can highly recommend!

On the second day, we had an unConference – a very appreciated concept where focusing on internal knowledge sharing. Several awesome designers hosted sessions on interesting topics ranging from Gamification to Design ethics and Accessibility. A big thank you to all of you!

    Turning the UEFA Euro into math

    The Finnish company Weoptit, a company in Visma, has turned the UEFA Euro tournament into math and simulations. Based on a model originally built by their analysts prior to the World Cup 2006, they have played out the tournament 1,000 000 times to find out what results each team can expect from this summer’s football festival.
