Looking for feedback from members of product design teams out there. Does your design team have dedicated dev resources? Meaning to say, is your design team in a position to release updates / features independent of a prioritized business roadmap? If so, I’d love to hear how your team is structured relative to product + engineering team (headcount, ratio of designers to product managers, ratio of designers to engineers).
If you are part of a design team with dedicated devs, how is it working out? What percentage of the design team is working on new initiatives vs. general core / usability? What doesn’t work, or what would you change?
If you are part of a design team that does not have dedicated devs, I’d love to hear from you as well. How does your team prioritize new initiatives vs. core experience?
