UX Culture & Enterprise Companies as Small Firms

In this episode Ben and Mark, founders of Fuzzy Math, discuss the following topics:

Building a UX culture for your clients

  • Study/research your clients. Understand their needs and motivators. Customize the process
  • We generally do it as part of a design project, not stand-alone. Demonstrates value.
  • Teach them by showing and doing:
    • Specifically teach them the ask the right questions.
  • Generally want to cancel research or not pay for it. 
    • Be flexible with your approach

Why enterprise companies turn to small firms to solve their problems

  • Speed - We get dropped int complex ecosystem and deliver immediately. No overhead. No "account" people. Our designers talk directly to our client 
  • Niche/focus - One thing and do it well. Can trust that. 
  • Client is Tech-focused - No design, need a full time 
  • Client is sales/procurement focused - Not talking to end user at any time (lot of steps between the the user and the decision maker)
  • Idea stagnation - Not sure what to do next, we either do or put a plan in place
    • Flexible, highly skilled (no B players)
  • Internal disagreements - Help people make decisions

Ben brings thoughtful leadership to the clients he serves and the projects he leads. As a founding member of Fuzzy Math, Ben takes great pride in delivering the best user experience and making the most of the journey along the way. As a veteran of a basement-based startup and small web
development shop, Ben understands that steady leadership and working together is the best way to overcome the tensions and conflicts that are inherent in design projects. He's enjoyed working with enterprise clients in the real estate, healthcare, and education industries.
