How do Agile UX teams collaborate?

  • Jun 25, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

How do Agile teams collaborate while preparing to build the product? How do they collaborate while the product is being built? And how does UX fit into it all?

For our next Meetup, we'll be focusing on these fundamental questions for Agile UX practitioners. We've invited members from three organizations to share methods, tips, success stories, and lessons learned. After their presentations, we'll open up the floor for a panel-style Q&A.


Ben Grohe (Product), Ben Burton (Dev), Will Evans (Design) @ TheLadders
Will talk about continuous qualitative and quantitative feedback mechanisms for testing hypotheses using rapid cadence usability testing and mixed panel analytics to gauge customer value creation.

Dan Kalafus (UX) @ EMC Consulting
Will talk about how EMC's Digital team addresses the challenges of doing Agile experience design with clients in a consulting environment.

Melissa Keene (UX), Christina Goldschmidt (Creative) @ Annalect
Will talk about how their organization structures their teams for collaboration and cross-functional pairing, both within and outside the sprint cycle.


6:30 to 7:00pm - Space opens, meet & greet.

7:00 to 8:30pm - Presentation, discussion.

We hope you can join us!

    Analect was the kind of presentation that makes this type of presentations engaging. The other speakers were not as focused

    I think there was good coverage of the minimum done to the extreme. It was good seeing both sides and a happy medium.

    Really well run and organized meetup. It's always good to 'get out of the office' and hear about how other organizations are managing UX in their business within an Agile framework. Not a lot of new stuff for anyone well versed in this area, but its always useful to see how folks with different sets of business dynamics and set ups are managing their different challenges. Given that collaboration is so fundamental to Agile, there were plenty of unexplored angles and different business challenges which were left undiscussed - plenty of fodder for a second discussion on the same topic later in the year...

    That's easy. The more donuts you eat, the less agile you are.

    I want to learn about how donuts factor into agile.

    And just as important, I am looking forward to learn how to put together a Team of local (NYC) programmers/desginers/engineers/project managers with proven records,
    that can be held accountable (legally/finacially) or compensanted for the results. I find outsourcing extremely risk for a large scale project and regional may be
    hard to afford. Partnership may not be doable as the project has very little room for changes (scale up ok but very little chance for scaling down).

    I would like to learn about budgding+ planning for Scalability (potential facebook scale) + feasibility of
    compartmentalizing a future large multi function heavy database (query/write/rewrite) web site in independent modules that
    can network, exchange information and work together, yet maintaining their autonomy,
    trying to keep the right balance low start up budge + maintenance cost.
