More, Better, Faster! Agile Design for Fun & Profit

3,675 views

Published on

We UX designers waste far too much time and money creating deliverables for the bin, and not nearly enough time iterating our ideas until they rock. Maybe if we take a page from the agile software development book, we can do more both better & faster?

  • Sorry, but I'm afraid Slideshare doesn't deal well with a) Keynote files and b) transitions & animations. I left them in so that the audio makes more sense when it's added.

  • Lots of imagery, but not much text, so it doesn't make much sense without me waving my arms in front of it. The audio track (coming soon) should help considerably.

  29. 29. Matt Balara UX Ausralia ‘09 More, Better, Faser! Agile Design for Fun & Proit “Designers must let go of perfection to produce rapid, iterative work: “90% right” solutions are par for the course for Agile. This can be counterintuitive, but for better or worse, Agile prioritizes the timeline over virtuosity. Certainly it makes designing to impress other designers harder. No great loss.” “Getting Real About Agile Design”, A List Apart — Cennydd Bowles http://www.alistapart.com/articles/gettingrealaboutagiledesign/
