This is the short talk I gave at the beginning of the June 2nd, 2011 meeting of the NYC Agile Experience Design meetup. It is meant to give context to the panel discussion which followed. That consisted of 4 non-designers (dev, product, qa) giving their POV on Lean UX. The full video of that talk is here: http://www.vimeo.com/24638334

  • Our first attempts at merging Agile and UX..well…
    Where others had failed, so did we
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • So we iterated the process
    Again and again.

  • We learned (at least) two big things…
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • 1. Solve problems together
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • Problem-statement focus
    Not features

  • Solve the problem together
    As opposed to implementing someone else’s solution

  • 2. Focus on experiences, not deliverables
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • Lean UX
    Inspired by Lean Startup and Agile development theories, it’s the practice of bringing the true nature of our work to light faster, with less emphasis on deliverables and greater focus on the actual experience being designed.
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • It goes a little something like this…
    Initially focused on just the UX folks
    Prototype
    Concept
    Validate Internally
    Test Externally
    Learn from user behavior
    Iterate
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • The only thing being removed is waste.
    You leave that stuff laying around and it starts to stink!
