High hopes are
being pinned on
UX
It’s more than
interfaces,
It’s also more than
products and services,
It’s about
experiences.

their customers
very well.

UX does not need to

If it takes a team,

Ignorance
Lack of understanding about the role
and contributions of UX.

Lack of communication and engagement
among inter-dependent groups.
Fiefdoms
Organizational compartmentalization
and lack of a holistic culture.
Inward Focus
Decisions are made only from the
perspective of the business.

UX-Driven Innovation

Published on

When UX strategy drives innovation, the end result is more than technical capability and beautiful interfaces: it is an experience differentiated by helping people surpass their goals and exceeding their expectations while delivering engaging, motivating, enjoyable, and memorable experiences. How can we plan and work toward new products and services while keeping the user in mind? How can we adopt and implement UX strategy? And, most importantly, how can we change the way we identify and pursue new opportunities so that we are leading the pack rather than chasing the competition? Take UX out of the design studio and include it in strategic research and planning to drive innovation in your business.
