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
work ‘up front’ but work collaboratively and continuously, adapting to the changes
that are inevitable in the lifetime of a digital project.
Agile development methodologies may have started life in IT, but their widespread and continuing adoption means there are many practitioners outside of IT--including designers--who need to change their thinking and adapt their practices. This is the missing book about agile that shows how designers, product managers, and development teams can integrate experience design into lean and agile product development. It equips you with tools, techniques and a framework for designing great experiences using agile methods so you can deliver timely products that are technically feasible, profitable for the business, and desirable from an end-customer perspective. This book will help you

do good design faster by doing just enough, just in time.
use design methods from disciplines such as design thinking, customer-centered design, product design, and service design.
create successful digital products by considering the needs of the end-customer, the business, and technology.
understand the next wave of thinking about continuous design and continuous delivery.
