Agile RI: How does UX/UI Design Fit Into Agile?

April 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

How does UX/UI Design Fit Into Agile?


Like Agile, Diversity & Inclusion, and Servant Leadership, organizations that realize the value of “UX/UI Design” usually don’t know how to work such things into their existing direction and momentum. And truly integrating these practices into existing cultures is an even longer and more involved journey than anyone anticipates.

In this session, Doug Roerden will share where UX/UI Design came from, where it is now, and where it’s going from an historical perspective and from his own experience. Relevant to Agile-focused audiences — especially those who have human beings using their products — Doug will reveal the secret behind how to integrate such seemingly exotic and alien functions.

Come with your curious mind, your open heart, and your restless soul, and be prepared to make a positive difference!
