For Product Managers and CEO’s, working with designers can be frustrating at times. We designers are a special kind of species. But if communication is right – and if both sides understand one another then the process of working together can be fulfilling and successful.
The following presentation discusses my take on the issue, and offers suggestions, tools and tips for working better with designers.
If you’re a CEO or Product Manager – I bet you’ll find this useful. If you’re a designer – you’re welcome to pass this on to your colleagues and clients.
Most importantly – if you got anything to add or any questions – list them down here in the comments.
* The following was presented at Google Campus TLV as part of the Launchpad mentorship program for startups, and also at the latest Product Management meetup in TLV.
