How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

The short answer is: transparently and often! UX at Skillsoft is part of the Product organization and as such is perfectly and uniquely positioned to facilitate converging efforts and conversations. We help connect different points of interest and intelligence that all need to be on the same page on every project and exploration.
