Lean Book Club meets every month to discuss a book that we've chosen to read together. Please only RSVP if you really intend to read the book and attend the meetup :)
This month at Lean Book Club we're going to be reading and discussing:
Lean UX -Applying Lean Principles to Improve User Experience by Jeff Gothelf
The Lean UX approach to interaction design is tailor-made for today’s web-driven reality. In this insightful book, leading advocate Jeff Gothelf teaches you valuable Lean UX principles, tactics, and techniques from the ground up—how to rapidly experiment with design ideas, validate them with real users, and continually adjust your design based on what you learn.
Inspired by Lean and Agile development theories, Lean UX lets you focus on the actual experience being designed, rather than deliverables. This book shows you how to collaborate closely with other members of the product team, and gather feedback early and often. You’ll learn how to drive the design in short, iterative cycles to assess what works best for the business and the user. Lean UX shows you how to make this change—for the better.
