This month was focused on one of the challenges commonly faced in agile adoptions: how to integrate UX and agile. We saw many new faces at our meeting, which confirmed what a hot topic this is. David Belcher, Director of User Experience at Improving Enterprises, shared his personal experiences and answered questions throughout the evening. As he reviewed the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of uniting the UX processes with Agile, it was clear that there is no simple answer.
If you missed the session and want to know ideas for a successful UX and agile merger for a project team, there is a video of this same presentation available online from the AgileDotNext Houston conference (thanks to usergroup.tv):
