I attended the Agile UX for Start ups event last night at the British Film Institute. We all ended up sitting in a ‘fish bowl’ of a room where a bar (where people drink) could look into our room and gain insights into why design and UX people are so creative! The presentations if anything, highlighted the fact that Agile dev methodologies and creative design ‘processes’ can work together in perfect harmony as long as the people involved are in synch (a shared vision) and want to do whatever it takes to deliver an amazing product in an iterative manner.
