About UX strategy
UX strategy is a process that should be started before the design or development of a digital product commences. It is a practice that when done empirically is a better guarantee of a successful digital product than just crossing your fingers, designing some wireframes, and then writing a bunch of code. It's the method by which you validate that your solution actually solves a problem for real customers in a dynamic marketplace.
