UX Design and Agile Development often have a rocky co-existence. Both are needed to produce successful, usable software, but many attempts to integrate the two have failed, leading to frustration, cost, and failed products. In this talk we explore integration strategies which have succeeded in producing harmonious and synergistic results. We begin by examining the goals, methods, and temperaments of the two camps; on the surface the differences may seem insurmountable, but a deeper analysis shows areas of common ground. We then present specific strategies which leverage this common ground and produce the high potentials of both UX Design and Agile Development. We will leave a little time at the end of the talk for a lively discussion among practitioners in the audience who can share their recent experiences and techniques. [170]
