User Experience Design is often thought about as the last mile in the product development process. In the past few years, Google has launched several products that are relevant to users who are coming online for the very first time. While building these products, Google learnt that User Experience (UX) is not just a designer's job. With successful collaboration with business development, marketing, engineering and product management teams we have integrated designing thing deep into our product development cycle. This session will focus on what it means for products team to be design-driven with some examples and success stories.
