Bad things happen as we stop solving people problems and start solving business problems

Human-Centered Design Dies at Launch
  • Even though every designer considers their most important stakeholder, this might only be good on paper
  • The problem is that as a company moves through each phase of the design process, the organization’s incentives can fall farther out of alignment with the needs of the people using the product and align more with the needs of the business.
  • The author walks through each designing phase, using a ride-sharing app as an example:
    1. Initial concept development/MVP (people problem)
    2. Reach product/market fit (product problem)
    3. Scale up (business problem)
    4. Cash out (market problem)

To survive in a world of change, stop designing for the best-case scenario

 
Resilience Is the Design Imperative of the 21st Century
  • In a world of “move fast and break things”, time rarely allows for designers to go back and improve beyond the golden path/happy path.
  • The author believes that we have to change the way we think about everything we create and suggests ways we can do that:
    • Design for resilience
    • Design for the edge cases
    • Make your design future-focused
  • Things that prevent us from doing so:
    • Distributed systems and interoperability
    • Proprietary products
    • Centralization
  • Breaking away from fragile design requires a shift in thinking, which means spending more time considering less-than-optimal scenarios and putting in the effort to address them.
