BeyondAgile is the Puget Sound-area user group for people using Agile and Lean practices to improve software and business.
We were formed from the combination and extrapolation of some previous Agile-related user groups: the Seattle XP Users' Group and Seattle Scrum. Mostly, we're people who want to share and learn about the latest ideas for better software development and delivery.
Join us for an overview of Design Thinking by JC Quintana. Design thinking is a human-centered approach to solving problems. It relies on observing, with empathy, how people interact with their environments and employs an iterative, hands-on approach to creating innovative solutions. It is an important part of validating the problems Agile aims to solve.
