I’m trying to convince stakeholders to give us adequate time for UX. On some projects we’re given around five weeks to do all the research, design, and testing. Not only does this lead us to not be able to iterate, it runs our designers and researchers ragged. We’ve tried switching to Kanban, but currently it’s treated as more of a work visualizaiton tool… not as a way to manage the project. Deadlines are still pushed on designers rather than being pulled.
Given these circumstances, does anyone know of any good methods for getting UX to have more time? Bare in mind that while we could do KPIs, we are usually not granted enough time to do so.
