UIE just published this podcast, where I have a great discussion with Jared Spool about how I’ve applied Agile thinking and values to UX practice.
These are my slides from the full-day workshop I recently conducted at the etre get together 2011 in London.
In my previous post, I talked about how starting to build earlier has a cascading and transformative impact on the UX practice.
In my previous post, I talked about how shifting your UX practice to an Agile approach first and foremost requires a change in attitude.
It seems to be increasingly commonplace for there to be a shortage of senior level UX designers, so the ability to extend fewer of them across more teams is likely of great interest and potential value to many organizations.
In my previous post, I talked about how applying grid focus to a sketching activity can allow for improved integration between the work of UX, Visual Design, and front-end developer disciplines.
Adding Grid Focus to a group sketching activity is, in my opinion, a great example of how a small additional effort early in the development of a design idea can have a large beneficial impact over time.
This is a slidecast (slides with audio) of the talk “Agile for the rest of us” I gave at the 2009 IA Summit.
The iterative design methodology is, in my opinion, the most effective and powerful approach to designing websites and applications. This is particularly true when comparing it to the more traditional waterfall methodology. While the methodology may be old hat to our more mature cousins, industrial designers, it seems many of us in the UX community are only now discovering this technique. (At the same time, there are aspects of working iteratively when designing digital products that are unique compared to fields such as industrial design.) So, what is iterative design all about, and what makes it powerful?
