  3. 3. My introduction to Agile... @ANDERSRAMSAY / #AGILEUXSaturday, December 1, 12
  4. 4. My introduction to Agile... Feeding the beast “There’s a whole team of developers and I’m the only UX designer. They’re building features faster than I can design them. I can’t keep up!” Half-Baked UX “Our PO’s under pressure to deliver the next release and signing off on features despite crap-ass usability. Help!” Sprint Tunnel-Vision “Yes, we technically delivered all the features this sprint, but looking at the big picture, the design’s an incoherent mess!” AGILEFALL/WATERFAGILE “Yup, we’re Agile. We’ve been sprinting and doing stories and what-not for about nine months now and are almost ready to start development.” @ANDERSRAMSAY / #AGILEUXSaturday, December 1, 12
  5. 5. One source of the problem... “What is the Agile process?” “Where does the UX designer fit into an Agile team?” “How do I fit my UX design work into a couple weeks? “What does an Agile functional spec. look like?” “When do we hand UX designs off to devs?” “How does a UX designer work 1-2 sprints ahead of developers?” etc. @ANDERSRAMSAY / #AGILEUXSaturday, December 1, 12
  6. 6. One source of the problem... “Where on a bicycle does the steering wheel go?” @ANDERSRAMSAY / #AGILEUXSaturday, December 1, 12

  16. 16. Cardstorming - Warms up brain and hands. - 3-5 minute timebox. - Each participant writes as many features they can think of on separate stickies. - Becomes a feature palette for sketching. @ANDERSRAMSAY / #AGILEUXSaturday, December 1, 12
