This session focuses innovation in Agile: how to develop and maintain a long-term vision while still driving an Agile team sprint by sprint. It’s hard for a UX team to do both—the pace of Agile sprints pull the team into the day to day work of individual stories. But if the UX team focuses only on stories they cannot develop the holistic view of the customer that leads to out-of-the-box solutions.
This session shows how you can do both. We lay out the work of the UX team, from user research through vision and architecture to UI design and implementation. We show how the UX team can use Scrum to organize its work in parallel with development so that the focus on vision and innovation is not lost. We show how to use Lean UX principles to work with development on that part of the UX job.
