7 habits of highly effective...

(I’m sure this has been asked countless times before but I can’t help myself.)
I’m looking for the habits of effective designers.   Not necessarily hard or soft skills.
Collaboration, communication, documentation, and investigation techniques all play a part but I'm looking for other, more specialized (or peculiar) routines and habits common to effective designers.The more specialized and peculiar the better!

The role is mainly Usability analysis, user testing, best practices, recommendations, etc for our exisiting large content web sites and new areas/ideas for the sites as well.

Hello All -

I applied to a program that fits many of my needs and wants, but I would love to hear what IxDers think of the course of study. I haven't seen the program mentioned in other threads.

It's a 1 year program in Interaction Design (culminating in a M.A.S) at the Swiss university SUPSI. It's aimed at professionals who want to shift careers.

Help Me With My Experience Design Diagram?

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for some feedback on a model I'm building to explain the complexity of experience design.
