Agile and UX: Embrace or Tolerate?

Many software products have poor user interaction, and products delivered with Agile teams are no exception. More organizations are beginning to understand this and attempt to incorporate UX design into their processes. In this presentation, we will talk about the need for incorporating UX design into your Agile process, how to do so, the challenges of getting a UX designer to work with an Agile team, and a few tips for making it all work.
