Details of the goals of the UX stage are as follows.
The User Experience/Interaction Design stage is for agile team members
passionate about creating a great user experience. Our goals include:
Putting practical user experience skills into the hands of the people
who need them – regardless of their official role
Communicating that user experience is a rich, deep discipline that can
help agile teams build better products
A great user experience must be rooted in an understanding of user
needs. Good user interface design is not enough. The best products
come from entire teams understanding and applying user experience
skills and practices throughout the entire lifecycle of a product.
In Agile development, the whole team must accept responsibility for
the quality of the user experience.
Questions the stage will attempt to answer:
As a user experience specialist, how can I best work with the rest of
the Agile team?
As an Agile team member, what can a user experience specialist do for us?
How can traditional user experience and usability practices be adapted
for an Agile environment?
What are some of the best tricks, tips, and practices that work in
less than ideal environments?
What are some of the best tricks, tips, and practices that work on
teams new to user experience or new to Agile?
Want can we do when we don't have a user experience specialist on the team?
