🔥 Learnings of the week
In this week's learning, our mentor- Eva Li shares the 5 things she wished she knew before starting in the product design industry. Let’s go 🚀!
1: Managing stakeholders does not mean pleasing them
Don’t let stakeholders dictate your design decisions
Treat stakeholders as a source of data and a way to get feedback
2: Not having a product voice
The absence of a product voice makes it easy for the team to overlook the importance of usability.
By voicing your design opinion, you’re educating your team.
3: Don’t know what agile is
Agile software development is the iterative approach that helps teams deliver value to their customers faster
For example: Responding to Change over Following a Plan, and Individuals and Interactions over Processes and Tools.
