A panel of our experts share the tools and techniques for successful UX leadership in enterprise Agile environments.
Hosted on Thursday, October 1, 2020 at 3:00 pm EDT
Implementing Agile in large corporations can be messy and complicated. Departmental structures and organizational dynamics are often at odds with the small, autonomous, “two-pizza team” spirit of Agile. Yet many organizations have successfully adopted some form of Agile into their software development practices. Some have well-established product teams and Agile PMOs. And while there is typically some UX presence, it can be challenging to successfully integrate thoughtful, strategic, human-centered design into the mix.
That’s where our panel of experts comes in. In this webinar, you’ll learn some of the tools and techniques for successful UX leadership in enterprise Agile environments.
This is part of our ongoing webinar series on tackling design and technology challenges.
