UXDX started out as a simple idea, Rory and Catherine took a step back from building their startup to research a better formula for launching a new product. In the past few years, they noticed the pace of change in project delivery has accelerated. While the benefits were clear the approaches for implementing these new processes were not. It was an issue they found was being tackled by the entire product development community around the world. What started with an initiative to build their own product, turned into a movement to shape the entire industry and the UXDX model was created.

In its first year, UXDX held gathered over 400 people mainly from the Dublin tech community with a mission to build a model to help teams build the right product, faster. In just 3 short years, the UXDX model has spread around the world, with community events across Europe and the main annual event UXDX Conf has grown to over 1,400 passionate product people from around the world gathering in Dublin each year to learn from forward thinkers and network at an event like no other. The mission behind UXDX has remained the same: to help both large and small teams enhance their process and advance their product.

We are currently drafting the full details of the model, including the necessary pre-planning steps for Outcome-Driven development, the strategies for development based on your product purpose and the detailed steps on how to manage each step of the process. We are reaching out to product delivery professionals for their input on the model and will incorporate this feedback into the final documentation.
