Creating an Agile UX Manifesto at IA Summit 2011

  1. let’s talk about agile ux…
  2. 25 people got in a room to try and create an agile ux manifestoThe purpose of the workshop was to bring participants together to share experiences and use that wealth ofknowledge to create a manifesto that can be shared and used by many people, not just those in the workshop.Image Credit: http-//
  3. this was the result…
  4. agile ux values collaboration over documentation iteration over up-front perfection more is not better, better is better it’s not done until it’s usable and brings value to the businessThese are our agile ux values
  5. agile ux principles ux design needs to be 1 step or more ahead of development team collaborative cross-functional teams will include business, user experience and technology representatives a multi-functional team is needed to carry the vision through the whole project pick the right projects and people for agile there should be user focus throughout the project - start to finish - for the entire team align the team around the vision ux should evangelise the user experience to the product owner define measures of success up front the product is never done, it can always be improved keep iterating design throughout the project based on usability tests and user input create the right amount of documentation for your project - no more, no less make the user experience better every iterationThese are our agile ux principles
  6. this is how we got there…
  7. individuals and interactions over processes and tools working software over comprehensive documentation customer collaboration over contract negotiation responding to change over following a planThis is the original software-led agile manifesto.There are only 4 simple principles, although this is detailed as 12 pillars.Everything else is an approximation / real world translation to try and bring this to fruition.Image Credit: Mark Plant
  8. communication over processes and tools delivered software over craft-specific artefacts value over intellectually complete responding to change over following a planThis is an attempt to take the agile values and develop them into something that works for more of a multi-disciplinary team.
