Why every software team should have a designer

Track: Agile Leadership

Even the most complex software projects can benefit from the intense collaboration that design thinking brings to your team. Designers have many superpowers aside from designing a user interface. Providing a team with ideas on how to approach a challenge differently is just one of them. We’re great at understanding and mapping complex ecosystems in a way that is easy to consume. We cannot only do user research, but also system research: understanding how systems play together. We’re also great workshop facilitators that can help teams articulate pain points and brainstorm solutions.
