Speed is a key ingredient in a successful product design process. After all, if you can’t iterate fast enough, you risk losing the market for your product. Not to mention that a poor design process drains your resources. 

But, when a project stalls, too many companies focus on optimizing the process itself, neglecting the people who make that process possible to begin with. 

About This Episode

Have you considered that team efficiency might be more of a cultural and emotional challenge than a technical one?
