  • I’m not satisfied with what I hear theUX community talking about.
  • But hey, UX is HOT right now!
  • The spotlight will be short-livedwithout a focus on results, withouttackling the language of business andnot just languages of customer anddesign.
  • UX CAN’T LIMIT ITSELF TO THIS

  • Tap into people’s pride. Everyonewants to work on somethingmeaningful.
  • Build a culture of hypotheses, notegos.
  • Mentor and get mentored acrossfunctional lines.
  • Get scrappy. "Don’t wait for permission."Be persistent."And broadcast the wins.
  • Don’t be afraid to measure."OWN RESULTS.
  • Ultimately, work is meaningless unlesswe create something valuable.
  • The Principle I Try To UpholdWork should begin with the hunt forvalue, and not end until value hasbeen validated.
