If they do, it’s usually over the difference between John saying something will be a cost savings, and Pam saying, “but my clients want that!” Together, they then look at what makes the most sense. Is it something the client really wants, but can’t afford? At that point, they may seek advice from their manufacturer partner to create a more cost effective design, and then compare with the competition. It’s on that basis they finally decide on what would be best for the marketplace. This is not to say they don’t discuss every detail. The informed, divergent thinking they bring to every product is the process they feel brings about the most successful conclusion. No matter how much you like each other or how great of partners you are, there are going to be challenges throughout the process. If they would offer advice on how to handle these challenges, it would be to not be afraid to disagree, embrace each other’s differences, and always give each other space during the design process.
