UX Team-of-one Situations
People may not say it directly, but there’s usually an expectation that having someone on a team who will focus on UX will result in changes to the product that will immediately wow everyone. This can be a tricky expectation to manage, since design improvements often happen gradually, over time.
To get a sense of what your colleagues do and don’t know about user experience, take them out to lunch and have a casual conversation. Consider a “Bathroom UX” campaign to promote a broader understanding of the roles and functions of user experience.
UX teams of one sometimes have to be diplomatic, informed, and well-meaning meddlers.
