    Giving a substantial feedback without risking to offend anyone requires a tremendous amount of effort nobody is willing to expend these days. I've seen people on Reddit and Discord doing it occasionally and on request. Dissecting someone's portfolio and writing a 3000-word essay + annotated screenshots with actionable advices about it requires at least 4 hours of work. Other than that? Read famous books, essays, follow famous designers and practice until your eyes bleed.

    From what I see a lot of these advices revolve around having better content. So in 2019 the best thing a SaaS UX designer could do to improve themselves is to learn to write better or pair with someone who does.

    I partly agree, UX is not a subset of UI. But your definition of the UX role would cause a lot of overlapping and friction between a UX Designer and a Product Manager. Observe this picture:

    Product manager: - Makes sure the product goes in the right direction - Coordinates work of different departments - Maintains proper communication in the team - Deals with budget and stakeholders

    UX Designer: - Designs UI - Applies art & science of UX design to the product - Studies users - Experiments and Optimizes product

    With a company small enough one can be both.

    Yes, that was the point of this post. I wonder how many more wheels are we reinventing these days and what's truly innovative in UX today. What's obsolete?

    Here's the original presentation. https://www.are.na/block/4747893

    It's mostly talking about the UI design as UX hadn't been coined as a term yet at that time. I doubt that UI designers do any sort of 'Competitive Analysis' and 'Personas Development'.

    Your description sounds more like what a product manager is doing. So where is the line between a product manager and a lead UX designer? Is this the same person on a small team?
