comment The calling the shots dilemma
Another cool method you can use, which is particularly useful in agile development with rapid decision-making, is to give each member of the team a responsibility to represent a certain "end users persona". Eg. let Peter represent "Grandma, 76", and Tom represent "Schoolboy, 8" etc. They need to interview and research the persona they are responsible for, and during meetings and discussions they should advocate their persona's opinions - not their own. You will hear them say stuff like "My end user does not like that blue background. She wants it more pink-ish".

comment The calling the shots dilemma
I'll try to get back to this question with a proper answer later, but in essence: try to base the decisions on objective data, not subjective opinions. Eg. user tests, A/B-tests, interviews, etc.

comment Is the 'magnifying glass search icon' right-handed because most people are right-handed?
Yea. I didn't try to convince OP anything regarding the distribution. I just wanted to point out that there are lots of varieties in the visual appearance of such icons. Also when it comes to the direction of the handle.
