Agile design

How does all this fit together and within the development context? What flows and features should you build first? We’ll look at some project examples and share our experience on what a UX-er needs to do in an agile environment.

  • UX strategy and prioritisation techniques
  • Iterations, long- and short-cycle projects

Impressions from the course

  • Edmond Jreige

    Business development manager at UX studio

    I enjoyed working in small groups, learning by doing, afterwork party. I really liked the content and the fact that different people from the studio were coming to explain some topics. Great working atmosphere in the studio, team breakfast on Friday. The feedback we have got from UX researcher Dan was really interesting as he gave us some insights how ux design is part of a whole business strategy.

  • Jeff Gage

    UI/UX Designer, eDOT Germany

    The most valuable part of the course was hearing all the answers to my questions which are always popping during the research phase of the new/existing product. Mentors were very helpful! I enjoyed usability testing with real users and getting feedback from UX Studio experts. The course helped to see a bigger picture.

  • Simon Tratnik

    Digital Product Designer, Styliff Tech

    I liked actual interviews with users and the team work. All the presentations were great, also you indeed stick to the timeschedule. The atmosphere was really friendly and informal, the lunches together were a good way to set up the mood.

  • Áron Fridvalszky

    UX/UI Designer, Skillio

    I found very useful the topic about how to go from the interviews to building personas and user journeys. The pre-course readings and tasks were a good idea! it helped me a lot to get on track. The constant feedback and staying in touch is awesome!
