Product Management for UX People: A Conversation with Christian Crumlish

Josh Corringham
February 6, 2024

In our first Design Conversation Series event of 2024, our CEO, Nick Allen, spoke with Christian Crumlish, a design industry veteran and the author of “Product Management for UX People: From Designing to Thriving in a Product World." Christian shared his perspective on the evolving relationship between UX and product management over time, and we were thrilled to have many questions from attendees curious about practical ways to implement some of the ideas he discussed. 

The event provided great advice and insights on how design and product teams can better work together. Some of the key topics include:

Key Topics 

 

  • Better understanding of the roles, motivations, and jobs-to-be done for both product managers and UX/UI designers.
  • How to identify and capitalize on the unique skills of product managers and designers - especially those who may move between the two.
  • Methods of collaborating that result in better products and product experiences.
  • Recommendations for organizational leaders on how to address the normal tension between product and design teams and how to better build, align, and manage teams.
