Published October 18, 2016 in Design

The conversation around software development has historically been framed around the software developer’s workflow. As result, most of the product development methodologies that enterprises typically use work great for developers. However, these methods aren’t ideal for UX or UI designers. Trying to break down the design process into a series of sprints is like trying to run a race where the finish line keeps moving. So what product development method really works for the design process, allowing for continuous discovery while still keeping on track with development?

This session is particularly useful for UX and UI designers, who struggle to adhere to Agile methodologies within the constraints of a final deadline for client deliverables.

In this session, you will discover:

• Challenges that we face
• The pros and cons of the most common processes
• A flexible continous discovery model
• An integrated dual track approach that allows development to be run Agile and UX do ebb and flow with project needs
