“We can’t say, ‘We need a better login page because it’s better UX.’ Instead, we say, ‘We need a better UX on the login page because we’ll have less abandonment there, and that means our user acquisition will go up, then our stock price goes up.’ Now, the business person says, ‘I get it.’ You’re talking to them in terms that have meaning to them.”
