I am a usability expert and a believer in agile. Integrating user-centered design with iterative development results in a collaborative environment with happy users and happy team members.
I currently work with a team of developers using a mix of agile methods including scrum and kanban. As the UX person on the team, I focus on understanding the needs of stakeholders, customers, and users so I can help the team make good decisions and deliver a product that meets or exceeds expectations.
I have a background in HCI (Masters) and Computer Science (BS). I don’t code at work, but my knowledge of that domain helps me understand and adapt to the challenges my team faces.
This blog is about the user experience part of the agile equation–methods that I have tried and would like to share with the community. Thanks for visiting!
