Why agile can be good for user experience By John Waterworth

Nice succinct article about agile UX…

Main points include:

  • Earlier integration and test helps create better user experiences
  • Self-contained teams produce better products faster
  • The product roadmap provides the big picture
  • Agile does not mean ‘no documentation’

“So…
I know that it’s possible for UX and agile to work well together. But you need the right conditions:

  • UX specialists are part of the agile team
  • The team has a clear product vision rooted in a real understanding of the customer
  • UX specialists create stories and interface sketches in collaboration with other team members
  • It’s not ‘done’ till you’ve tried it out with real users”
