About The Book

You spend the better half of your career reading and practicing for the day when someone asks, “Hey design team, what do you think?”. You get this nagging feeling that you wish all those fantastic articles wouldn’t explain to you what to do but rather suggest a practical strategy on how to implement such changes within your company. How do you put your users at the very center of the organization you work for?

This book is for anybody passionate about user experience, but who may be in a company that needs that extra push. You may be a designer, marketer, content specialist, or in one of the many jobs concerned about user experience.

You don’t need to be a manager, although you might be. You don’t need to be an expert in user experience. You just need a willingness to challenge the way your company does things and be relentless at putting the user first.

This Book Will:

  1. Encourage you to break out of your comfort zone and start influencing the full scope of the user experience.
  2. Teach you how to articulate the benefits of user-centric thinking efficiently.
  3. Guide you through the process of building a grassroots movement within your company — a movement that will advocate the needs of your users.
  4. Provide practical ways you can raise the profile of the user within your organization.
  5. Help you find and build a proof of concepts to sell the benefits of a user-centric approach.
  6. Show you how to get management interested in user experience, and gain their support.
  7. Identify ways of embedding user-centric methodologies into the culture of the company.
