When it comes to agile product development, an emphasis on speedy delivery often puts designers and developers at odds over how good a product looks versus how well it works. How can we leverage the agile framework to deliver outstanding UI and functionality at equal value, without compromising one over the other? Whether you're a designer, developer, functional or product person, join us as we discuss how to adopt and implement a lean UI review process that ultimately results in a higher quality product.
