has to admit, for the user experience practitioners, the current environment is very good. Has arrived, everybody talks about the user, each family talks about the experience. Do the products should focus on the user experience, to have been recognized by everyone, but in some specific issues has not been a consensus, so the resistance in time, promote user experience difficulties, resulting in many of the company’s user experience Department useless, not play a role.
