Integrating Agile and User Experience

Integrating Agile and User Experience

The web is no longer in it's infancy. We're growing up. The age old model of creating time consuming deliverables just to appease a client is over. Disciplines must now collaborate, reduce waste and learn to be truly agile in order to create high quality products. In this presentation attendees will discover: 

• a quick review of user experience

• methodology tools in the toolbox (Agile, Scrum, Kanban, Lean)

• the difference between a deliverable and an artifact 

• integrating user experience into agile processes

• ways to reduce waste and get to market quickly

    This comment is to the group: As an attendee, I would love it if we, the audience, could let the presenter finish before we start critiquing his or her ideas [without having heard the entire presentation]. When the meetup divulged into commentary from three members of the audience for a full 10 minutes (maybe more), I lost interest. Those ideas could have been great to ask as questions at the end.

      My apologies if my comments/questions distracted. I was mostly trying to get clarifications to make sure I understood what was being said. There's enough ambiguity in implementing even SCRUM that it's easy to misunderstand someone's approach.

    Thanks for having me out folks and allowing me to try out a new presentation. I've received some pretty good feedback on what worked and what didn't work.

    This was definitely knowledge gained. Though I was looking for more on the user experience.

      Glad you enjoyed it. The presentation is still pretty unrefined. I agree with the feedback. Less basic concepts and more time on the UX side of things and how to incorporate it into Agile.

    Thank you for the presentation. It was OK but needed a bit more in-depth discussion about any particular pain-points to better understand the situation. Scrum 101 overview would have also helped for attendees who were not familiar with how Scrum applied in this case.

      Great feedback. I agree with the need to spend less time on Scrum 101 to allow more focus on the actual pain points + resolutions.

    The urinal example for UX/UI experience was a bit socially awkward. Consider using breakfast cereal as a universal metaphor, http://seanconnelly.me/blog/ux-vs-ui-infographic-difference-user-experience-user-interface/

      Well, I don't think so. I actually liked the example.

      Everybody has to pee. I do like the cereal example though.

    Thank you Bermon for starting a conversation to bridge the gap between User Experience and Agile Development. This is a great topic with lots of collaborative opportunities.

    We need to have a phone number for anyone showing up late or should we walk around to the back door.

    I enjoyed the topic! The questions and the comments from the audience added good value to the meeting.
