Product design is what I do at work at Together.
Sometimes that means fixing lots of small obvious problems that improve quality. Other times it means starting big ambitious projects from scratch. On some occasions, it means talking through problems and designing my way out of designing anything at all.
I value sketching, writing, and quick decisions over talking in circles. I think great ideas come from different team members when they have lots of relevant inputs from users and customers to give them context. I think roles are a helpful way to designate accountability within teams, but I like to learn about and share responsibilities in adjacent roles.
Making a successful product is a team sport.
