Customers were adopting our one-size-fits-all platform for “tracking and resolving supply-chain problems,” but we noticed that they were trying to do even more with it. Now that they had an easier way to track problem-resolution processes, they wanted to do the same with other processes as well. The leadership decided to seize this opportunity and completely overhaul the product to better serve this much broader set of capabilities. We aimed to enable customers (in any industry) to easily track and manage any kind of complex cross-team or cross-enterprise process. We also needed to ensure it was a no-brainer, easy upgrade for current customers.

Starbucks, one of our biggest customers, was interested in sending some users to participate in a Co-Design exercise. We wanted to understand what those users were experiencing as the primary benefits of the product, generate new feature ideas to inform the product roadmap, and reinvigorate the customer relationship.
Product Design Lead, Mentor
The product had an Inventory Management feature-set that provided some value, but was struggling to take off. The team responsible for the requirements and design consisted of a Product Manager and Product Designer who had been supporting it for a while. They, and some key advisors, were available to help me better understand the space and make this area successful. Because there was a long list of enhancement requests, the opportunity was to just prioritize and knock them out (or so we thought...).
Visual Designer, Prototyper
The rich-text-editing parts of our product were built with a 3rd-party plugin that needed to be replaced within the next few weeks. A new plugin had been chosen, and it supported hundreds of features and had no UI restrictions. We wanted our product to provide some more options, but remain streamlined in context. I had to quickly select features, pick out icons, design a color selection panel, etc. and deliver final visual design in a prototype for engineers to quickly implement (while also overseeing other projects and managing my team).
