This month at UPA Boston’s March Meeting: “Agile UX, Yes We Can!”. Alla Zollers will share her experiences with integrating UX into the agile process.
Agile UX, Yes We Can!
As the popularity of grows, user experience (ux) practitioners are being asked to adopt more agile practices into their workflow. This transition has been difficult for some ux practitioners as they struggle to find their place within established agile processes, leading towards confusion and negativity. A common belief, for example, is that agile does not provide enough time for user research. In fact, agile can provide more opportunities for gathering user feedback.
This presentation clearly defines the difference between agile principles and practices and the role of the ux practitioner within this process. Alla will provide a balanced and honest view of agile’s benefits and drawbacks for ux design. In addition, she will touch on the misconceptions and proven techniques for working, designing and thriving in an agile environment.
