I’m a new hire and currently the only creative on a team of developers. I’ve requested Figma—but IT has pushed back, asking for “detailed business justification… explaining it is beneficial or will assist in day-to-day tasks”.

I’ve already provided info of that nature directly from Figma’s website. Suggestions on what else might convince them?

Further context: our marketing dept currently uses Sketch. And my employer’s industry is insurance claims management.

Another thing to bring up is Sketch is not enough for efficient developer handoff. You’ll likely need Zeplin to pair with it. Figma gives you both, the design software as well as a good communication of spec for Eng.

What does your manager have to say? Some organizations align a standard creative tool/design technology stack for many good reasons: keeps licensing costs down, file/asset shareability and repurpose, limits info sec concerns. But some orgs are more flexible and will allow a few different tools in. But this isnt your call IMO, its your Managers, whoever you report too. Dont sweat it too much tho - so many design tools are so similar from a patterns perspective, if you know Figma very well you can likely pick up Sketch quickly, and vice versa.

My manager doesn’t have a creative bone in his body, and supports my decision. I know both Figma and Sketch (and XD) equally well, but prefer Figma.

Then you should be fine I would think! Corp IT always are a kind of lowest common denominator to change. If you still meet resistance, connect it to business metrics the org cares more about - e.g. it makes hand offs to developers to code x amount faster, it integrates better with Jira, unlike Sketch it is not Mac only. But honestly if your manager supports it you csn just say to them "IT is giving me push back on Figma, can you help push this through?"

Question for consultants in healthcare, what books have you found helpful in your career? I’m starting soon, but I come from a clinical background, and haven’t been exposed to that much beyond that. I have been doing a lot of reading (mainly JAMA/NEJM articles on policy, HBR articles, Christensen and Porters books on innovation etc). I’ve found them immensely helpful (I’m still early on, so I learn a lot with each new book). Outside of news sources, what books have you found helpful?
Thank you!
