Everything but the execution

Paul André Research Lead Facebook

The difference between good or great design and research (or mid- to senior-level) often isn’t the execution of the work itself, but what you do before and after it. We'll focus on a few strategies and processes to elevate work, the product, and strategy, from opinionated product thinking to a framework for creating, executing, and landing projects.
