✨ About the Session
One of the major problems as designers working across domains is driving collaboration between stakeholders. Specifically in the user experience space stakeholder management becomes very critical as every stakeholder inputs matters. If the inputs are not sought at the right time it could hamper or slow down the project at any point. In UX the collaboration is typically between Product Managers, Developers, Program Managers, Marketers, Leadership, and a Designer. All these points of view come in various forms like Business requirement documents (BRDs), Excel sheets, Customer anodes, Pitch plans, etc. Your job as a designer is to merge all these viewpoints and come up with a common vision to move ahead. One of the design methods we have been using is Design sprints (Method invented by Google ventures team) to drive collaboration among the team. Design sprints are a 5-day end-end design process right from identifying the needs of users to testing the low fidelity prototype with the end customers.
