Techniques & Methods
Companies don’t need full-time specialists most of the time… Instead, companies need overlap. They need a group of people who have a range of skills. People who can do user research and strategy definition, swing into interaction design and content strategy, maybe kick up a prototype or two along the way (in one form or another), run usability tests at a couple of stages, and maybe even help out with visual design.

The thinking tools available to designers depend heavily upon the knowledge structure of the disciplines that play a role in the design project.
