The Right Model
Your Tailored Solution
UX and product designers must adopt a questioning mindset. Skilled questioning leads to better outcomes and paradigm changes within organizations. You may stir the pot a little bit, but you may also help shape a new direction and encourage others to move forward.
While most modern enterprise companies use buzzwords like “out of the box thinking”, they seem to be rather question averse. Instead they’ve created a culture which rewards employees on measures of efficiency, while punishing those who ask too many questions. Enterprise software design treats the Lean method more as a process than a mindset. It’s used to move a project from concept to creation, but not to iterate and discover. In a true spirit of Lean, a team needs to be ready to try many approaches and fail. A strong culture of questioning is essential to achieving innovative results.
