As a UX Designer, you’ll be called upon many times during your career to advise product teams when there is no effective roadmap to show what features they’re building, and more importantly, what problems they’re solving with those features. Often, product teams struggle to express their plans and need help curating feedback, prioritizing ideas, and applying design concepts to solve problems. Not only is good research needed but also a way to express insights that gets everyone on the same page and drives the most value.
In this enterprise case study, Drew shows how he recently used research, process and collaboration to come up with a with a UX Roadmap that aligns to value, and helps his team answer questions like: how to prioritize feedback, which features should be built, to what extent, and in what order? Questions and discussion will follow the presentation.
