Mixing LeanUX and Agile Development

Note location change to 410 Townsend/5th st - NEW LOCATION

Presentation: Mixing Lean UX and Agile Development
Using two specific case studies and learnings from other projects, Courtney will walk through the weekly cadence that is used at Carbon Five during product development. This methodology and its activities establish a sustainable culture of integrated and invested teams that are able to communicate across disciplines in a meaningful way. The result of creating this type of culture via cadence allows our teams to put new features in front of users each week for validation and hence move the product closer to its market fit faster

 

Presenter: Courtney Hemphill
Courtney Hemphill is a Lead Developer at Carbon Five in San Francisco, CA. Over the past 10+ years, Courtney has used Agile and Lean techniques in a wide variety of web and mobile projects for clients including SFMOMA, Skype, Sharethrough, and BookRenter.

An outspoken advocate for integrating design processes  into quick development cycles, Courtney and her teams consistently deliver high quality design and development for applications that test both code and interactions with real customers. She also coaches and speaks about techniques that optimize this feedback loop.

Courtney organizes events with Women Who Code and RailsBridge in San Francisco. She has mentored at both LUXr and South by Southwest Interactive and is a regular contributor to the Balanced Team group. Courtney also finds a healthy amount of time to unplug from the internets, traveling in search of the best rock climbing spots in the world, always returning to her primary stomping ground in Yosemite Valley.

      Great recap Dennis, thanks for sharing your notes and the handy embed to Courtney's slides. Got thrown for a second/paragraph with the insertion of the Autodesk dual tracking approach but that material provides a good contrast within your post.

      Thanks much for reading, Craig, and for the constructive feedback. Yes, I think I need to smooth out the intro in my post. I see that Courtney has made a graciously in-depth reply in comments, fyi. Hope the post helps to drive the conversation a bit -- http://disq.us/8g6bbc­ And thank you Courtney, BayALN and C5 for a super talk.

    I am fascinated by this application of Agile without scrum.

    • Roy C.

      There's a lot of ways to be Agile, Scrum is just one of them (and it has a short list of 'rules' that define it).

      My favorite metaphor: There's a lot of ways to "eat healthy", being Vegan is just one of them (and it has a short list of 'rules' that define it).

    Courtney's passion for UX is particularly amazing since she's been doing it for over a decade yet her energy and enthusiasm is still "lean start-up" fresh. Must be proof positive about those fast, feedback-rich cycles. Got the impression that even those attending who are in larger, matrixed organizations gleaned inspiration all the same. Thanks Courtney and BA ALN team!

    Sounds quite interesting but I still need to heal.
    Suggestion for Future Presentations: anyway we could use a high-res videocam to stream the presentation to remote attendees? May not be the best approach to capture the speaker and their whiteboard / chartpad /slide notes, but could still provide value for those too ill or for other reasons not able to make it physically to the place of presentation - - -

    Are they allowing us to sign the NDA when we check that night?

    October 21, 2013

    • Elina R.

      yes Barb, there is one paragraph of NDA on the sign-in sheet on premisses, our team of volunteers will be assisting with it!

      October 21, 2013

    • Barb H.

      Thanks, similar to when we hold events at Adobe. Just didn't know if they had changed procedures.

      October 21, 2013

  • Elina R.

    Hello everyone, please note that Adobe requires signing simple NDA at the registration.
