Design & Development - Put your ego aside and make it work
Designer to developer ratio improved by 2.5x in the last 5 years. Companies hire designers, but they fail to foster a culture of collaboration, this leads to frustration, conflicts and sub-optimal products. Designers and developers offer two points of view on products, missing one would leave us blindsided and make us vulnerable to bad decision making. After working side by side for several years in different companies and countries, we share our insights on how to align teams on shared goals, embrace the appropriate rituals, follow best practices and pick the right tools.
