IxDA Cincinnati hopes you can join us for "Embracing Agile UX (what it means, what works, and lessons learned)", presented by Juli Luebbe, Senior User Experience Designer at Vantiv, and Paul Spencer, Delivery Director at POMIET.
Whether you are working on an Agile project, or just looking to incorporate leaner practices into your UX workflow, this session will provide applicable insights for you. We’ll feature real-world tips and examples you can put to use today, along with exploring perspectives from diverse roles (team member to executive change leader) to help you form your own vision of Agile UX, moving forward.
Discussions will include:

- What's working? What hasn't worked?
- How would you ______? (You can fill in the blank with applicable questions.)
