At Daxko, specialized knowledge doesn’t mean specialized work. It means responsibility to coach the entire team to execute well within the specialist’s area of expertise. That’s how we approach user experience (UX) design—our embedded designers on each team have a responsibility to coax good design out of the team through a variety of methods and techniques, but they’re not solely responsible for generating the design.
In this combination presentation and panel discussion for PMI Atlanta's Agile Interest Group meeting, we shared how we work at Daxko, how we account for UX in project planning, and how we practice design as a team sport. We also fielded audience questions and gave an honest and transparent view into what we’ve done that works as well as some of the failed experiments we’ve undertaken.
