Event description

Description

Designing the User Experience is a process, not a moment in time. User feedback and design thinking needs to be intergrated into your Agile development.

We will kick off this session with a brief refresh of Agile development, and then launch into how to couple agile development with design thinking in order to create a great UX for your customer. An important aspect we will focus on is how to incorporate customer feedback into your development schedule. Whether you are a team of one or a team of many, you will leave the session feeling confident in your UX development plan over the course of product development.
