Testing The Limits of Agile with Design Research
Agile has proven itself invaluable to the world of software development. Yet it's impossible to author one of agile's foundational artifacts, a user story, without first understanding its protagonist—the user who desires the new capability you’re building. What can we do to identify with this customer? We can test the limits of agile. Andrew Maier will introduce two types of design research—generative research (such as user interviews) and evaluative research (such as usability testing)—and show how they inform the stories we author and the problems we solve.
