Summary

"This book is fantastic. This is a must-read for designers who want to fulfill their potential—treated equally to their peers in technology and business—and ultimately secure a seat at the table with business managers and developers. If you're a designer who thinks getting ahead means you have to go back to school for an MBA, read this book first. Pulling from agile methods in design, Fish and Kiekbusch provide a concrete step-by-step product vision process. The book proves while correcting lack of business acumen is important, vision is the designer's way forward. It's essentially a playbook that sets the stage towards successful product validation—outlining a workflow for any designer who wishes to 'level up' from being a tactical designer to a strategic designer. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in design leadership."

—Heather Shaw, Professor, Department Chair of Design, Lesley Art + Design
