Optimizing Organization Frameworks for Applied Design


Published on

The business benefits of Lean UX methodologies (reduced costs, greater team ownership and collaboration, enhanced product and market share etc.) are well understood by specialist industry practitioners. Organizations on the other hand, aren't always (a) comfortable engaging in "design" activities, be it Lean, Agile, or UX and (b) structured to facilitate cross-functional ideation and execution. I will share strategies that have worked for me in a variety of organization types, ranging from UX consultancies and in-house product teams, to a broad mix of agency types. My focus is to help you and your teams identify critical inter-discipline/department partnerships, cultivate soft skills inherent in collaborative design and ultimately influence the organizational framework so the advantages of design are formalized beyond process and execution.
