In 2000, Jesse James Garrett first published his The Elements of User Experience diagram. In 2001, a group of practitioners signed the Agile Manifesto. Since then, User Experience and agile approaches to software development have gained traction, and have influenced how we build digital products. In this talk at UX Day Graz, Johanna outlined the opportunities and challenges UX designers face when working in an agile context, shared some of the best practices to make Agile and UX work well together, and discussed why the Lean Startup approach is opening doors for UX.
