Join Chris Nodder for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Making User Experience Happen as a Team.
- If you weren't taking notes as we went through the course,…here's a handy summary and to-do list for you to follow…as you take steps to make user experience happen…the way it should be in your organization.…First, work out what it takes to sell user experience…to the correct people in the organization.…For some, that will mean speaking in dollars,…so make sure you have dollar figures on hand.…For others, that will mean creating systematic ways…to understand and interpret empathetic user data.…Next, figure out your team's work priorities…and stick to them.…
Create a priority model and update it frequently.…You'll need to think about creating resources…for teams you can't work with…so that they don't get too disappointed…and so that they still stand a chance…of being user-centered.…Also, plan ahead for who you're going…to hitch your wagon to in the executive space.…What product team leaders can get your team…the exposure you need so that everyone else…in the organization wants to work with you?…You aren't alone in this.…
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.
