The importance of Identity and Vision to user experience designers on agile proj

User Experience (UX) practitioners and agile practitioners need to understand how user-centred design (UCD) and its techniques can be applied in an agile context. We studied the role of UX practitioners on agile projects, as perceived by UX practitioners themselves. Interviewing 10 UX practitioners in a variety of settings, we identified two main themes that they perceive to be highly influential in the success of integrating UCD and agile approaches: UX practitioners’ understanding of their job role, and the need to establish, protect and communicate an overall team vision.

Examining the Foundations of Agile Usability with eXtreme Scenario-based Design

room: Plaza Ballroom A — time: Tuesday 11:00-11:45
Level: Expert

The increasing use of agile methods to develop UI-intensive systems has led to a need to find ways of integrating usability into agile teams—reconciling the convergence and divergent points between the two areas. Agile usability researchers at Virginia Tech have partnered with Meridium to develop and implement an integrated approach known as eXtreme Scenario-based Design (XSBD). Based on an analysis of core values and principles of both areas, and work from other agile usability researchers we identified four requirements that need to be met for an integrated approach to work effectively.
