UX Strategy: What’s all the fuss about this rapidly growing practice? (Janice James)

You might be asking how UX Strategy is any different from the user experience plans we’ve always created as user researchers and interaction designers. Is it just a new buzzword or is there more to it?

Let’s take a look at this new "strategy" and what makes it different from our current practices. Understand why developing a UX strategy is critical in our personal success as UX professionals and in the success we help our organizations achieve.
