Even though UX Design and Product Management are separate career paths, they tend to intertwine with each other quite often. Excellent collaboration and skill-sharing between the two can lead to a great user-centric product that solves core pain points.
So what is exactly UX design, and what does a UX designer do, that adds value to a product?
How should PMs or entrepreneurs communicate effectively with Designers to build great products?
And many other questions were discussed in the ‘Product Management meets UX Design’ Panel Discussion hosted by ProductTank Tokyo.
