AGILE USER FOCUSED DISCOVERIES
What would it take to make your users happy with your services and how agile methodology would make the discovery phase successful?
Modern Agile ways of working emphasise the benefits of bringing together business representation (Product owners) with development teams. This means everyone is focused on a shared understanding of “value”: identifying who the product is for, what the user is trying to achieve, and how this benefits the business/organisation. Just as Agile practitioners have matured, business and product practitioners have also evolved, acknowledging the need to observe, to understand, to hypothesise, and to get feedback from customers.
Design professionals realize the important truth: we are not our users. User experience professionals are using design thinking methods to glean insights into how to make users awesome! And yet, there is a natural tension between upfront understanding and getting real feedback.
