  1. Book Review: The Lean Product Playbook

    July 20, 2020

    Cover: The Lean Product PlaybookOver the last several years, I’ve noticed a shift in the adoption of User Experience within organizations. This is encouraging, but might also require UX professionals to consider the skills and the roles that we bring to product teams. There are two key factors that are now impacting the way UX professionals work with product teams.
