This month we’re discussing Lean UX, the latest technique to get UX teams and Agile teams working together effectively. Inspired by Agile development, Lean adopts the idea that designs are hypotheses that need to be validated, and that creating a shared understanding among development teams and stakeholders is the primary goal of development planning activity.
Our speaker, Andrew Mottaz, is the CTO and Founder of Site9, makers of ProtoShare. Andrew will present a brief summary of the competing approaches to implementing Lean UX, and discuss Site9's experiences incorporating Lean UX into their Agile development environment. After the presentation, the rest of the session will be dedicated to a group discussion of issues raised by Lean UX, how to get Lean UX started in your work environments, and explore alternatives to or variations of Lean techniques.
