Years before UX gained recognized business value in most enterprises or became a common component of software development lifecycles, Allen led by integrating those practices in tactical projects and promoting the value of standardizing them.
Today, he provides strategic guidance on culture and process change required for creation of mature UX practices while continuing to be the bridge between right and left brains for product design and development teams in B2B and B2C efforts.
Allen continues a quest for opportunities to bring original thinking to projects with wide impact, and help enterprises foster UX practices that add to customer satisfaction and the bottom line.
