    A side effect of organizations becoming more focused on the user is that developers can get left behind if they don't make the shift. For example in product feature brainstorming meetings, developers might focus on a feature for power users which end up deprioritized because it only benefits a small percentage of users.

    It's important for designers to be educators and mentors, especially on keeping an open mind about different approaches to a problem and avoiding falling prey to the Law of the instrument.

      Great point. We aren't just designers but design evangelizers. A great designer works to teach and persuade the rest of the organization towards user-centered design.
