Lean Apart: A Case Study in Agile UX Design for a Distributed Team
Collaboration between multi-disciplinary, globally distributed teams can be a challenge. Our talk will cover how we brought our team together in both local and remote settings to learn the practice of design studios, making them an integral part of doing UI design. We want to convey the awesome value of sketching with cross-discipline team members, and that includes developers! It shortens the feedback loop drastically, allowing designs to get in front of users faster. This "agile design" works hand in hand with the faster pace of agile development cycles. We’d like to walk you through the design studio method itself, the benefits it can bring to any software development project, and offer guidance on how to run sessions effectively with remote teams. We’ll share what we’ve learned along the way, and show you the benefits it brought to our project.
