    While I disagree with some of the points about usability experts (not everybody in that world communicates through opaque reports, and getting good at usability testing is a distinct skill that takes time and effort to get right) - I whole heartedly agree with the advice that designers should get involved with usability testing their designs.

    If nobody in your team is doing usability tests already, run and buy Steve Krug's "Rocket Surgery Made Easy". It'll take about an hour to read - and get you up and running with the basics very quickly.
