TOPIC:Jet.com fmr Product VP on Building Better Products by Design
How can Product leaders lead design organizations when they're not designers themselves? When done badly there is tension between the product & design teams because the business can easily distrust the intangible benefits of a thriving design team. Jet.com fmr Product VP Sarah Bernard shares a tried & true framework Product leaders can apply in their organization to insure their design thinking is performing to its highest potential. Product leaders need this performance from design because it is an essential element for solving really hard product problems & getting to inspired solutions.
