What is important to remember is that UX is not a single cog in a machinery. For the effect to be noticeable, UX needs to permeate all aspects of an organization. Actually talking to the users and adapting the development according to their wishes and needs creates a user-centered approach that reduces the number of assumptions and guesses and promotes a culture lined with studies and experiments. It also allows us to create products that are better received by users and therefore increases the likelihood that they will be both profitable, long-lasting and successful.
