Workshop Agile + UX

image

Big Design Week starts Monday, and I’m thrilled to have been asked to help present on Wednesday’s workshop! I’ll be digging in to the dicey topic of UX and Agile with Brian Sullivan and Jim Carlsen-Landy. I’m really looking forward to presenting with these guys. We all come at Agile and UX teams from slightly different angles. Jim has managed UX teams for a couple of years at a company that was an early adopter of agile practices, and Brian will be walking through hands on techniques to get scrappy with your UX research, design and deliverables.

I’ll be focusing in on some of the misconceptions that exists between the agile and UX worlds and specifically how teams can scale Scrum with UX teams. It’s going to be awesome! Check out the full week’s schedule, and if you haven’t done so yet, there is still time to register.
