None of the above. I’d recommend moving your proverbial desk as close to the users as possible. Observe them using your product and tangential ones. Note their struggles and how there’s almost certainly a gap between those building the products and those using them. Spend at least one day without meetings per week to pore over the observations and connect them to the rest of your team’s efforts. Source: OTJ experience

Appreciate that, and I’m as embedded as I can get. I was initially just doing the requirements gathering and then they moved up a bit so now I need to be a lot more integrated with the technical team. I used to just throw reqs over fence and made sure they’d make their way in the system

Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)
