I work in a medium sized company of around 700. We have lots of departments, lots of products and I am the only dedicated UX in the company. Our software is for large, public sector clients and is, by and large, pretty bad. So you would think I would have lots to work on. I don’t.
Internal communication seems to be fragmented and while I produce good work folks are happy with, I just don’t see other managers see any value in UX because they simply don’t know I exist.
This has to change.
Here’s what I am proposing and would love input from anyone here who has experienced similar.
**Open invite webinars - explain what UX is and how it has helped improve products
**Ask managers I have worked with to refer me to other departments
**Draw up a list of managers to target, research their product and email them directly
Anything else I could be doing? FYI my remit was never about self promotion but I can’t see me staying on if there’s nothing to do.
