UX Meetup April 5

"Client, do you actually want UX? - UX and business development" by Maria Køhnke

Working with UX designers can sometimes be unpleasant for a client or in-house organization because it can lead to decision-making on a much more strategic level than first expected.

Some UXers might recognize this: They set out to design “the solution”, they ask a lot of questions and through the eye of the user, they see new strategic opportunities or give whole new perspectives to the initial brief. The PM gets nervous because his incentive is to get “something" out in a hurry.

These days there is a high interest in how to shortcut design processes and innovate with quick fixes. Time-to-market is scarily often the only success criteria that matters.

But If you buy into the premise of a UX’er being part of the business development team, you may have a much stronger platform for innovation. Maria is bringing case examples that demonstrate a take-design-thinking-seriously-approach, where redefining the initial problem is in focus. She asks UXers to be brave. Everyday.
