The secret to shipping successful product is clearly defining for your team the problem that you’re setting out to solve. However, a problem statement is useless if it’s not written correctly. A problem statement focuses on what the customer needs, not what you think the solution should be. This is hard and counterintuitive, because humans are wired to think in solutions.

Why designers should be embedded into product teams and what that even means

Let’s say that you’re a designer in an organization that already has partial product teams. Designers aren’t totally committed to those teams— they aren’t embedded. Teams request design help when they need it, designers are dispatched, and then when they’ve finished a set piece of work their allocations are renegotiated across the teams.
