Stickynotes episode 15, October 1 2020
Details from this session
Are you a UX team of one? What can you do to co-opt the rest of your product team to do your work for you and improve the product immensely at the same time?
If you’re the only UX researcher or designer (or both!) on your team or in your organization, it can feel like an uphill battle to get anything done.
But rather than trying to do it all yourself, why not make UX everybody’s responsibility? That way, you get to involve the whole team in your UX activities, they learn more about their users’ needs, and the whole product benefits.
In this episode we discussed
- the benefits of staying connected to other researchers via forums, conferences and meetups so you don’t feel so alone
- getting team members engaged so that they want to help you out
- demonstrating that your work provides value for other roles on the team so that those people commit time to attend your meetings and research sessions
- admitting you don’t know everything so that other team members want to help you out
