Well said and nicely narrate Darshan. It all boils down to the factor of current Situation, Time & Priority. At the end of the day it all boils down to time management without compromising either professional or personal life which ever has the priority (at a particular time). Though In our professional life intigrity plays major role.
Being smart in our industry is having deep knowledge of everything but smart enough to know when to execute what. Great write Priya Saraswat as always. On a lighter note, You can also treat this post as your resume.
Great read Julie. Ideally it all boils down to transparency and clarity regarding objectives and goals. And PM being a visionary makes life simple for everyone. Most of the time narrow thinking and short term goals are the major concerns. In my personal experience things are fine as long as designers can define their approach and can convey the value their approach brings in the table.
