by Elisabeth Hubert, published on Elisabeth Hubert Blog
For the past few weeks, I have been the client for a discovery process to better understand the entrepreneurial mindset. It has been an eye opening exercise, and I have learned a lot from our user research team about the workings of the “entrepreneur brain”. This brain is the same one that many of our business people, even in corporations, have. It is an incredibly creative, hugely passionate, but, often times, an unable to execute on the idea brain. These folks usually just know that their ideas are good ones, that people and society need their help, and that, at whatever cost, they will succeed in making the world a better place. This brain is a noble one, however, there is just one tiny problem. This brain often doesn’t know how to build software products, and worse, it thinks that this whole UX thing, is just to make the product look good. Lastly, it thinks that if it makes the product look good, people will love it. Oh boy are they wrong.
