Learning to Play UX Rugby

These are my slides from this last weekend’s excellent Agile UX NYC conference.  One clarification I need to make.  Early in the talk, I describe “designing ahead” as an anti-pattern.  From conversations that followed, I think a lot of people took that to mean that designing ahead is bad outright and something you should not do.  There is nothing inherently wrong with designing ahead; the problem lies in how you think of designing ahead, ie is it something you do as a matter of course, or is it something you try to do as little of as possible, and who is it that is designing ahead? The UX designer alone or the whole team?  More about that in my blog post on this topic.

So, with that out of the way, here are the slides from my talk:

  1. Only seen the slides so far, but that’s action-provoking content. Looks like slides 26-38 are duplicates of the earlier set?

    • Thanks for pointing that out! For some reason, this seems to only happen in the embedded version. Seems to be a SlideShare issue :-/

    • Posted on Hi there, I discovered your blog by the use of Google at the same time as secrahing for a similar matter, your web site came up, it looks great. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.
