Lean Book Club - Lean UX

  • Jun 9, 2014 · 6:15 PM
  • LaunchPad Labs

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.

Frame a vision of the problem you’re solving and focus your team on the right outcomesBring the designers’ toolkit to the rest of your product teamShare your insights with your team much earlier in the processCreate Minimum Viable Products to determine which ideas are validIncorporate the voice of the customer throughout the project cycleMake your team more productive: combine Lean UX with Agile’s Scrum frameworkUnderstand the organizational shifts necessary to integrate Lean UX

    Really annoyed I couldn't make it (unwell), what were the big talking points?

      Hi Tom, the big talking points were: validating assumptions, collaborative design and practical adoption into Agile frameworks...

      Hey Andrew, I'll be curious to hear your point. Although I also see the "lean" branding effect, it's also true that the synchronisation between UX and dev teams can be tricky at times...

      June 2, 2014

    • Glen C.

      That's the craziness isn't it? Someone brands a process 'lean' and then we expect it to be a business fad rather than the best way to build a great product fast and by design... Full Fat Start-up anyone?

    Would love to come - have RSVPed, but depends if a project goes live that weekend or not.
