At UX Week in San Francisco I spoke about “Agile & UX: Two Great Tastes That Taste Great Together.”
Many UX designers are introduced to Agile as a set of practices (standups, sprints, backlogs, retrospectives). At the core, agile is based on a set of values. By considering and connecting with these agile values, UX designers have an opportunity to connect with developers to cultivate better understanding and smoother working relationships.
I encourage UX designers to cultivate an agile mindset by keeping these six objectives in mind:
- Be part of the team
- Create conversation
- Run experiments
- Reduce waste
- Find your cadence
- Expand your toolbox
