This is the book we wish we’d had when we were first introduced to agile
methods. We want to show how design and agile are a natural fit together.
How bringing together the people who build the products you design with the
people who use the products you design will lead to better decisions and better
customer experiences. We want to make the experience of designing in an agile
environment easier and more compelling. How you no longer need to do all your
