"Mixing Lean UX and Agile Development"

Using two specific case studies and learnings from other projects, I walk attendees through the weekly cadence that we use at Carbon Five during product development. This methodology and its activities establish a sustainable culture of integrated and invested teams that are able to communicate across disciplines in a meaningful way. The result of creating this type of culture via cadence allows our teams to put new features in front of users each week for validation and hence move the product closer to its market fit faster.
