How do you define success? It’s a tricky question for designers, developers, and business professionals alike. Many of us in design who are in leadership positions within our organizations struggle with how to clearly articulate the value of the work our teams create for the company. Yet it’s a crucial part of getting (and keeping) our seat at the table - our place as key influencers and decision makers in our organization’s strategy.
Having spent the majority of my career with B2B companies, I’m no stranger to this challenge. I’ve also been blessed to be surrounded by passionate peers willing to both fight for the value of human-centered design and to teach the ins and outs of the business.
Therefore, I developed a framework to help UXers understand how to collaborate with a variety of people in the organization (engineers, product managers, UX managers, and more) to define and align on a product’s success metrics. My goal was not necessarily to create a new way of thinking, but to provide a common language and bridge the gaps between departments that tend to happen at large organizations. Thanks to this, I’m happy to share with the experience strategy community an eBook called Measuring Up: A Framework for Creating UX Metrics.
