About The Workshop “Storytelling techniques to build empathy in teams”
The UX Designer knows the user best. It’s in the job description. Other team members might not necessarily ever talk to the users. This means that the UX Designer could see potential ethical, behavioural or usability problems before anybody else. Normally, what follows is the UX Designer spending a considerable amount of time communicating, discussing and sometimes even arguing about these findings with various other members of the team.
