It is now a must for any product teams to strive to continuously deliver value to users.

Are you getting the most from your Agile and UX approaches?
If you've ever been in a team building a product - especially if it involves some digital aspect - you surely have come across the age old topic of balancing the tension between design and development, which often materialises itself today as a convergence or conflict between Agile and UX.

This workshop is aimed at practitioners and leaders in team environments- whether you are a UXers, programmer or project manager, you will learn just how to find the ‘best blend’ of the two approaches, no matter the constraints or type of product you are trying to create.
The session will cover:
This XTRAM workshop will be taught by Daryl Chan and colleagues from why innovation!, a consulting firm that coaches teams and organisations in successfully delivering products in the digital world.
