Great projects are the result of a deep collaboration resulting from a shared vision of success, managed expectations, and hard work. Over the years I have worked closely with design teams to create design processes that reﬂect the uniqueness of each project and the stakeholders involved. Often overlooked, the Process is just as important as the end product as it creates the context and road map for the Journey.
