  2. 2. 2 Balanced  Team  is  a  global  movement  made  up  of   people  who  value  mul--­‐disciplinary  collabora-on   and  itera-ve  delivery  focused  on  customer  value   as  a  source  for  innova-on.   We're  a  self-­‐organizing  group  that  learns  from  each   other  as  we  explore  processes  and  methodologies   to  create  great  things.   We  welcome  people  who  wear  many  hats  (design,   development,  tes?ng,  product  management,   marke?ng  and  sales,  to  name  a  few).

  13. 13. 13 “...there  was  a  strong  feeling  among  us  that  we  are   moving  toward  (or  have  already  entered)  a  Post-­‐Agile   Paradigm,  meaning  that  what  we  really  are  talking   about  here  is  not  the  Agile  your  grandparents  knew   and  loved,  er,  I  mean  the  Agile  which  the  original   signatories  (of  which  one  of  them,  Ward,  was   aVending)  arWculated  in  2001.    Remember,  Agile  in  its   original  form  is  largely  silent  about  UX.    Our   conversaWon  was  about  a  paradigm  in  which  the  voice   of  UX  plays  an  equal  role  in  the  project  chorus.” Anders  Ramsay h-p://www.andersramsay.com/2010/02/04/notes-­‐from-­‐the-­‐agile-­‐ux-­‐retreat-­‐at-­‐cooper/
