DevOps ICU: Improving Software Dev Results by (Correctly) Integrating UX

by Debbie Levitt

Methods English

Software development methodologies lack the details of how UX fits into organizations, teams, and projects. Some suggest that a Product Manager describing features is enough for developers, UX should train others to do their specialized jobs, or excluding UX experts solves them being “too siloed” and “not collaborative.” Your customer only cares about your UX, not 1000 developers or if you were Agile or Lean. Recent highly-publicized UX failures remind us that skimping on the UX process can alienate customers, create negative media attention, and burn millions of dollars. Learn how the UX process fits into Lean and Agile; augments DevOps goals; increases customer satisfaction; and saves time, money, and sanity... all before developers write a line of code
