I recently started a UX Design role in a different organization. I'm curious as to what are some best practice techniques in getting up to speed fast. The organization I'm working on is small and they get usability but there's room to grok UX holistically.
That said, what do you do when you start a new engagement or a new role? I'm thinking some of the critical things might be,
- Learning the organization's business - how is the product being sold, distributed, etc.
- Meeting with stakeholders from sales, marketing, product, and so on
- Gathering existing voice of customer data to feed into UX Strategy
- Taking over former UX assets and learning how the process was done previously
So what do you do to get up to speed quick in a new position while making a long-term, strategic impact?
