Designers are frequently challenged by how to respond to and work within popular methodologies such as Agile Scrum, Lean, and Design Thinking. These are often applied at the same time, and in ways that aren't consistent from company to company. In this talk, Anne Hjortshoj, Director of UX at CarGurus, will talk about ways to reconcile and benefit from these seemingly competitive frameworks.

Prior to CarGurus, Anne successfully led UX & product design in the cybersecurity, online education, financial services, and advertising industries.
