UX in a Dual Track-Agile World
What do you get when user experience drives the agile process? Dual-Track Agile, where the features of the product are discovered alongside the development of the product itself. This session will explain what dual-track agile is, the benefits of dual-track agile, the role of UX, and what to expect. It will focus on the discovery cycle, the role of validated hypotheses and assumptions and how UX uniquely contributes to this invaluable process.
My goal for this presentation was to get people thinking about more ways they can bring a UX perspective into Agile. I have often heard complaints about how hard it is to squeeze UX into agile, and dual-track agile takes a very different approach, one where UX is the critical component.People who attended this session will be able to go back to their jobs explain what dual-track agile is and why their teams may want to try it out. They will know the basics of running a discovery cycle (i.e. UX research) and how product development is naturally folded into this process.
