8:30am to 12:30pm
Agile represents a huge shift from waterfall and other traditional approaches to software development, and UX practitioners have realized they need to adapt their traditional methods accordingly. In this intensive half-day workshop, you’ll learn both how to be a successful UX practitioner within an Agile team, and how to improve your own UX methodology, even if you’re not in an Agile environment, through Agile practices.
This workshop will simulate key points of a UX practitioner's journey through an Agile project. We’ll divide into teams and work in mini-versions of Agile work environments. In our ""team rooms,"" we'll explore project activities that both reveal Agile thinking and offer practical value that you can apply when returning to your real-world projects and challenges. Activities and topics will include Agile research with Paired Interviews, an Agile approach to Personas, intensive collaborative ideation and rapid user interface design with Design Studio, the UX of User Stories, working in Sprints, and an Agile approach to User Testing.
Activities will be interspersed with group discussion. Time allowing, we’ll conclude the day by conducting a Retrospective (an important Agile practice) during which participants reflect on the project journey and share insights.
