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

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
