Working on a product’s UX/UI requires the ability to collaborate with dozens of people: stakeholders, product owners, managers, SMEs, developers, business analysts, etc. The peculiar thing is that all of them have their own goals (personal, professional and those connected with a particular product) and reasons.
How do I avoid the battle of egos? What should I consider important input from clients and co-workers? When do I rely on, and insist the team follow my professional opinion? These are the questions designers wrestle with every day.
