I think we may have different definitions of process and design…
In my mind, process is a series of actions aimed at a particular end, and to design is to create deliverables according to plan, in your current context.
Maybe you are talking about creativity?
It’s been argued that, in order for…
A design process isn’t about you, the designer. You define a process for the people around you. And yes, when the context around you changes, the process changes. And when your skills and responsibilities change, the process changes.
Last Tuesday, I gave a talk at UX Vienna about improving your design process, and gave…
Hey Jason. I’m curious if attendees of your workshop (and users of this diagram in general) indicated *other roles or teams* that were playing in this field? For example: did they feel that HR should be picking up more of the People quadrant, or that Product Managers should worry about the profit or product aspects?
Hey Jason! When I first started reading the different categories, I thought there was too much overlap between them and that some needed to be combined but on closer inspection, they all make sense individually.
As a design leader who soon takes on some design manager responsibilities, I see myself doing quite a few of these…
I guess, except I don’t understand why in many occasions a job title is mentioned more than once?
Also: I appreciate you sharing all the background materials; it makes me appreciate the main findings more, and I keep discovering little nuggets there!
Thanks for this, and for identifying UX Strategists as a group :-)
You mentioned using a machine-learning algorithm to identify other groupings but have you considered creating a dendogram (tree view) for the similarities. I know OptimalSort and Simple Card Sort create these based on card-sort type input, but maybe you can…
To this: ‘Mediocrity. Absolutely fine if it serves clients’ needs. But doesn’t get much praise from peers or clients. In fact, I think this is just fine. If mediocrity satisfies the need. It doesn’t need to wow. It might just work. It’s familiar. It may be appropriate. It may scale.”
When I read the title and then the description, I immediately thought of Stewart Brand’s Pace Layers, so: good to see they’re making it in!
Somehow, I also expected some Dirk Gently or Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy reference in there :-)
Good luck with the editing (down) of the talk!
