Learn how to incorporate Usability Studies into Agile development in perfect harmony. With a few simple adjustments to the traditional Usability Testing approach, you can make Usability a valuable component of your Agile projects.

Traditional usability studies, despite the valuable results from observing how real users experience your product, are generally costly and time consuming. This makes it difficult to integrate formal usability testing into the fast-paced Agile development. We will show you how to combine Usability Testing and Agile so you can gather real customer insights and improve the experience design of your product with each sprint.

In this session, you will learn: - Differences between traditional software development and Agile - How to adjust your usability testing approach to become a natural part of Agile projects - The benefits of Agile, Usability and combining the two.
