We all know that UX design is not something that you do by yourself and just send the deliverables to your superior at the end of the day. It is highly collaborative. However I can’t wrap by head around this issue:
When you approach the rest of the team (marketing, sales, customer support, developers etc.), are you ever afraid that they will tell you something like: “Hey, if I do your job will you do mine?” or “I never bother you with sales/marketing problems, why do you bother me with design issues when it is your job?”.
There are a lot of companies who don’t understand the value of UX and will think that they are doing the UX designer’s job by participating in brainstorming sessions. How do you frame the situation so they don’t feel used?
