Hearing the revision, everyone must have been shocked and changed.
Yes, a product revision is sometimes an inevitable stage in the life cycle, but sometimes it may just be a flash of inspiration from the boss.
And this flash of inspiration will make the entire email list product development team work overtime and rack their brains for several months to complete this task.
The design team usually assists the product manager to complete the business-led revision, for example, to adjust the business structure, some changes must occur in the product form at a certain stage.
However, if the revision is led by designers, it usually starts from improving the task efficiency, enhancing the interactive experience and the senses of the overall brand vision.
Today, I will not talk about the process of professional revision. First, I have talked about it before. Second, the products are too different, the process cannot be copied, and the universality is not strong.
So today I will share with you from the perspective of projects and workplaces, what points need to be paid attention to in the revision process led by designers.
1. Make adequate preparations
Preparation is important, and a good start is half the battle.
But the beginning is often the hardest, and making a plan is the easiest stage.
Why is it difficult to start? Let's analyze a few situations.
1. The designer's voice
Designer-led revisions are not just what they want to do. Many small and medium-sized enterprises don’t want to let design-led revisions, even if they make a suggestion, they will be returned by the product, so we will not consider this situation.
If you are on a product team where design has no place, there is no such thing as design leadership.
So what we are discussing is how designers can promote the revision under the condition that the product development team has a certain right to speak.
Even if they have a certain right to speak, each department actually iterates the project around the product manager, so if the designer wants to lead the revision, in the eyes of other departments, it will be a bit "overstepping", but in fact we all know that, like interactive experience, Visual upgrades can only be led by designers, and product managers are not good at this.
But we don't have the time and energy to explain so much to others. At this time, we need to invite "Shangfang Baojian" to promote this project from top to bottom. Otherwise, if you want to set up a project, no department is willing to cooperate with you.
