Power of Agile UX

User experience design in an agile team is exciting. Design ideas come to life in real product during just weeks, which gives very fast user feedback and feels good. In contrast, sequential (waterfall) process in our company resulted in design specifications, which may have got implemented after years of waiting, becoming obsolete, or never at all.

In this talk I summarize 1.5-year experience with UX design in an agile team, working on a web calendar project. I’ll describe how we adapted traditional UX tools and techniques so that they now have a more lightweight form, how they fit into agile process, and which ones we have dropped completely.

Attendees will get practical advice on the following topics:

- Agile usability testing. How to conduct frequent short tests instead of sporadic big ones, and fix only the top problems. How to make whole team observe and evaluate the test in less than a day.
- Co-design workshops. Having users, stakeholders and developers sketch collaboratively allows all great ideas to appear (and everyone can have one), while increasing a long-term understanding that users differ from us.
- Working with user feedback, from few-minute usability test of a sketch to using screenshots of future functionality in their actual place in the product.
- How far ahead of coding should design start? Starting too soon means wasted time on documentation, so that we don’t forget stuff until coding starts. Starting too late may block the team completely, waiting for UX design, or result in low quality of the design.
