Here’s a great video if you’re involved in the rollout of a product – it covers design largely, but delves into the team dynamics as well

Some key takeaways.

  • Business often cuts design out, it’s easy to put on the “chopping block”
  • People don’t want to pay for design
  • Design is never an accident
  • Standards are a great starting point – think about them as rules …
  • “The Rules” : learn them, follow them, study them, then break them.
  • “Ideas are cheap – execution is hard”
