During a discussion with another UX designer, an interesting point about the 'neglect' phase of UX design was brought up. This deals with companies that have implemented UX processes and methods, and end up neglecting it only to realize that they are better off with it. There have been so many ways of trying to argue and provide evidence of the ROI for UX, but I think the clearest way to demonstrate this is for people to see what it is like with and without UX processes in place.
I am interested in getting some ideas about the impact of (partially or otherwise) abandoning UX practices when they have been in place in organizations. Personally I don't think every type of organization will benefit from it, but generally if it is implemented we don't always hear about some of the downside so I would like to find out if there are any studies or information on this.
