Drivers and Putters map nicely to the Strategic & Product Design roles I described a while back.“
[Strategic Designers] are tremendously adept at visualizing a complete product experience and how it maps to business and user goals. These designers are invaluable during the early stages of product ideation. They help focus product strategy and give teams a vision to drive toward.
[Product] designers excel in the ability to get recurring product updates (that drive toward a long-term goal) out the door quickly and efficiently. They have a passion for a particular product and quickly become domain experts in that product area.”
I want to be a Driver … let the putting be done by mortals ….
BUT what if no one picks up my efforts to putt to deliver the last “10 feet” ?
