Effectively Engaging With Designers and Product Managers

If you’re a UX writer, chances are you’ll find yourself collaborating with designers and product managers over the course of a project. How do you make these engagements run smoothly and produce great results for your audience?

To begin, it helps to understand the role and perspective of the other members of the team: How do they measure success? What do they care about? What bothers them? Since many people have never worked with a UX writer, it also helps to explain what you do and what value you deliver to the team.

You will learn:

  • The key roles and responsibilities for UI designers and product managers
  • How to educate team members on the role of the UX writer and your deliverables
  • How to approach collaborative work sessions and brainstorms
  • How to negotiate timelines and set expectations
  • How to advocate for inclusion in activities such as user testing and requirements gathering
