I agree, you wouldn't want to wait until something is in review to get
user feedback or testing. I think a Lean UX
(https://www.scaledagileframework.com/lean-ux/) approach would be more
appropriate especially when there is no designated UX person. You
might need to lean more heavily on design standards and
instrumentation for feedback, but sessions with users would still be
important for developing standards and could be used as needed if it's
not possible to do them on a regular basis.

I like this idea. A working group could work on developing design
standards and work out what to measure and how to measure it.
