The Agile Designer: Aligning Dual-track UX and Development to Balance the Tactical and Strategic, Mi
Presented by: Jenna ChamraTime: Thursday, Jan. 09, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Product teams everywhere are embracing Agile. It’s no wonder why: Agile creates better transparency, alignment and speed to market. The problem is, Agile was originally created for software developers. Design teams which try to adopt Agile often find themselves falling into “Faux-gile” or “Wagile” (Waterfall in Agile clothing) practices as they balance strategic and tactical necessities, from wireframes to critical user discovery and validation.
This session will help design and UX teams:
1. Balance UX strategy, research, tactics and validation activities in an Agile framework without sacrificing quality or budgets
2. Avoid design debt that delays projects and risks expensive re-work by finding the happy medium between working too far ahead or behind development sprints
3. Choose the right tools and metrics to create the transparency your clients, collaborators and leadership crave to ensure your product is on track
4. Understand the importance of iteration and continued refinement
