Although Scrum has achieved considerable success in recent years, putting it into practice has
revealed numerous problems. Scrum is typcially practicised by people with cross-functional
skills who do the actual work. It is often noted that integrating design experts for design
speciVc tasks is rather hard to accomplish. This thesis presents new artifacts and stages to
improve and maintain the process Wow and value chain. As a consequence designers become
more important in the Scrum team and are recognised as full members and the design of
the application built is more sustainable and Wexible. This new approach that combines
incremental design and the new artifacts and methods is called Agile Design.
