  • We were in the deliverables business
    It was the way we’d “always” worked
    #LeanUX | @jboogie

  • …and then we became an Agile shop
    Moving away from big design up front and deliverables
    We needed to get out of the deliverables business!
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • Tactic 1: Style guides
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • Style guides get the mundane out of the way
    Allow team to focus on core design problems
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • Create a re-usable asset library
    Not just for designers, but for developers too!
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • Tactic 2: Collaborative Problem Solving
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • Design studios
    Focus the team on solving a problem, not implementing a solution
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • Outcome, not output
    Create just enough design to get started
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • Tactic 3: Pair developers and designers
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
  • Pairing saves time
    It also levels the playing field

    #LeanUX | @jboogie

  • Big Learning #2: Personality and attitude are key to success
    #LeanUX | @jboogie
