Jeff White and Jim Ungar

User Interface Design in an Agile Environment: Enter the Design Studio

This talk will benefit an audience of interaction designers by highlighting the inner workings of a design studio – a time boxed, collaborative design session that serves to consolidate ideas and team direction around a common design. This session will cover two main topics: 1) how to plan and conduct a design studio with your engineering staff, and 2) how the design studio benefits agile environments by accelerating the design process, providing developers, stakeholders and designers with shared ownership of the design, and providing an environment for mentoring and knowledge transfer.
