Agile team professionals often find themselves working on projects with tight deadlines, tighter budgets, and unreasonably high expectations for success. Too often user research, usability, and design processes are compressed or even cut entirely for the sake of time, while development and business analysis time is increased. As UX professionals become more involved with agile development methods, we have discovered novel approaches to user-centered design that are adaptable to any budget or deadline.
This discussion will explore how user research, usability, IA and interaction design practices are adapted and thrive in agile projects.
Focusing on their experiences at Agile 2009 in Chicago this past fall, they will discuss:
- How to provide timely and valuable UX support to stressed web development teams
- How to let go and modify research/design/development dogmas
- How to advocate for users when time for user research and usability are unavailable
- How to balance rigor, quality, and speed
