One of the most common obstacles that we come across is securing organisational buy–in of user–centred design and having the tools to push back when something simply doesn’t make sense.

- The three aspects of influencing design direction
- How to create the link between experience design and commercial success to gain buy–in from your organisation
- Why customer champions will always lead the way
