User Research for Agile Teams

  • Mar 18, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Where does research and usability testing fit into Agile? How can research help you iterate quickly and fail early in environments where the expectation is a finished, validated product every sprint? We had a great Meetup event last year on the ins and outs of user research on Agile teams, and we'd like to continue exploring this topic with three new perspectives. After their presentations, we'll open up the floor for a panel-style Q&A.

We hope you can join us!

If you're not able to attend, check out the livestream at


Andres Glusman, Meetup
Will talk about how Meetup does 600+ usability sessions a year, how usability testing is part of design & development routines and how you can do it too.

Anna Cory-Watson and Cam Burley, AppNexus
Will talk about how research help you iterate quickly and fail early in a Scrum environment where the expectation is a finished, validated product every sprint.

Jodi Leo, CapTap
Will demo and talk about how to recruit the right users for your research as quickly as possible.


6:30 to 7:00pm - Space opens, meet & greet.

7:00 to 8:30pm - Presentation, discussion.

      it doesn't matter. use whatever you have, whatever you think is easiest for your users.

      I agree. However, GTM is relatively inexpensive and is much more user friendly than Adobe.

    thoughts on ethnio: there are three methods of recruiting participants with this tool, but only placing javascript on your site (the original method?) results in "the right 1985" nate bolt was talking about. you want to conduct what i think of as a remote contextual inquiry? you have to grab participants while they're engaged in the task you're testing, or something similar to it. putting out a tweet or a craigslist ad is easier than bringing a person into your office, but doesn't change the fact that it's still an artificial scenario, whether they're sitting in your usability lab or on their living room couch with a webcam. the javascript pop-up addresses that, but then, it's also the most complex means of getting participants.

    presented at this last March, and the discussion was really compelling. Very much looking forward to this year's edition, and really glad to see the topic revisited. For what it is worth, here is the slides from my presentation on the topic:
