How Product Management Can Work with UX Designers to Create Great Products

By Patrick Neeman, Stephanie Bergman May 27, 2014

Fostering a collaborative and productive partnership between product and UX can sometimes be a challenge. This webinar will feature real-world examples and best practices covering:
 
Common pitfalls. The challenges facing the product management and UX designer relationship
 
Role definition. A clearer structure helps everyone share in the product development process more effectively
 
Collaboration points. Discover where the two can best work together: user and market research, user stories, usability testing and other methods that produce results that can immediately be put into action
 
Practical recommendations. How to handle continually changing UX in an agile environment
 
Conflict resolution. How to best handle when UX and product disagree
 
Join Stephanie Bergman of ADP and Patrick Neeman of Usability Counts for this lively discussion on the product management/UX designer relationship from both sides of the fence.
