Content Introduction

To bring good user experience to users, designers need to not only hone their design capabilities, but also be able to influence product decisions and create value for users. How to increase the influence of a designer on a team? In addition to linking day-to-day output to business goals, designers should have the power to, for example, work with senior decision makers to map out the product vision for the next five years to ensure that the product is strategically user-centric.

This workshop is based on the framework of product vision production, touching on multiple dimensions of design influence: decision-makers' managerial competence, business competence, organizational competence, and the ability to speak with data. I will combine specific cases to show the skills needed in each link of the product vision from 0 to 1. Workshop participants will also practice each knowledge point in the process of making the vision.
