Join Chris Nodder for an in-depth discussion in this video Justify your budget, part of Making User Experience Happen as a Team.
- So let's say your organization is at a level of maturity…where they recognize the benefits…of getting user experience involved.…You've been working hard to get several…of the company's executives on your side,…and they love what you do.…You've been clear about which teams you can support…and which you can't, so the executives are aware…of the extra demand, both from the people…who are complaining that you couldn't support them…and from the teams who want even more of your time.…You've been carefully capturing metrics that show the impact…of the user experience team's work.…
And you have testimonials from development leads,…product managers, and even the marketing department…to say how helpful your work was.…Now you want to move it to the next level,…and to do that, you need money for extra staff…and resources.…It's essential that you know what you want…before you ask for it,…and can demonstrate what that will mean for the company.…You'll have to show how the high-value work…you're already doing would scale across the organization…
In this practical course, look at what it takes to help systemizers to empathize, and how you can best integrate with development teams, communicate the value of UX to business-oriented team members, and cultivate executive champions. Upon wrapping up this course, you'll have a better understanding of how to help your colleagues grasp the importance of user experience—which, in turn, can help make design decisions a bit easier.
