UX vs. AGILE : How to Integrate the Best out of both Worlds

UX and Agile approaches involve their own special set of techniques for creating products and experiences, but they do overlap in one key area– creating products that delight and bring value to users.

Unfortunately, trying to accommodate for both approaches results in sometimes unhealthy competition for the key resource of Time - as well as frustration mainly due to common misunderstandings of both practices.

This workshop is aimed at practitioners and leaders in team environments- whether you are a UXers, programmer or project manager, you will learn just how to find the ‘best blend’ of the two approaches, no matter the constraints or type of product you are trying to create.

The session will cover:

· A little bit of theory - Introduction to UX and Agile

· Case study of one approach used to rapidly prototype a new mobile application for a Hong Kong company

· Hands-on: building a rapid prototype in groups (learning how to collaborate with a cross-functional team)

· Different ways of integrating UX and Agile ways of working.

This XTRAM workshop will be taught by Daryl Chan and colleagues from why innovation!, a consulting firm that coaches teams and organisations in successfully delivering products in the digital world.
